A newcomer for 2010 Holiday, the Nike Lava Dunk showcases the foundation of NSW hybridization, shaping iconic design with elite performance. Launching as part of the “Athletics Far East” Collection originating from the Nike Sportswear Design Studio in Japan, a collection inspired by Athletics West re-imagined in the East. The Dunk’s unmistakable upper moulds with the Lava Dome’s sole tooling to create this winterized trailblazer. An EVA buffed midsole and boot-like hardware combine with ripstop nylon, ACG logo, wax laces, reflective hits and water repellency to round off the performance aesthetic. The Nike Zoom sockliner, high grade full grain leather and camo lining round off the design. The Lava Dunk launches in two colorways, Black and Khaki, and debuts October 1.
