October is set to be the month of Off-White™ and Nike‘s Air Rubber Dunk, and one of the three colorways of the Virgil Abloh-designed silhouette that’s set to release is the “Green Strike.” Serving up a seasonally-appropriate palette atop its SB Dunk-meets-P-6000 build, the “Green Strike” supplies a spookily unique look with plenty of special details.
The puffy upper is built upon a chunky last, giving it a wide shape reminicent of ’00s skate shoes. However, this skate base is overlaid with the P-6000’s running shoe-inspired extended eyestays, swooping midfoot overlay and sport-geared toebox. On the “Green Strike” colorway, this is all dressed in black, save for a slight gray tint on select pieces. Rubberized Swooshes that hang slightly off the back are done up in a bright green hue that’s replicated on the piping, and tongue tags supply a hybrid green “Nike/OFF” hit.
Abloh’s signature Helvatica text in white takes up residence on the medial quarter, and each pair comes with an infamous ziptie — here done up in blaze orange. Tongues are made from extra-thick exposed foam, with the top half completed by heel branding and a special insole graphic. Down below, rubberized Nike Dunk midsoles are equipped with an Air Max unit in the heel to boost the cushion and complete the look.
Expect the Off-White™ x Nike Air Rubber Dunk “Green Strike” to release on Nike SNKRS in North and South America October 1. The retail price is set at $180 USD.
