Since first joining forces in 2017, Virgil Abloh and
48 of the 50 styles included follow a regimented routine, namely embellishing a white and gray upper with key Abloh design motifs like overhanging lacing systems, exposed foam tongues, Helvetica text hits, plastic zipties and fabric tabs. The main difference between each? Alternating material combinations of leather, suede and canvas. A key new addition from past Off-White™ Dunks is a marbled piece of rubber on each shoe’s lateral midsole that denotes its place in “The 50.” There’s also colorful, Swoosh-equipped insoles in each pair.
The two styles from “The 50” that don’t follow the script set by their 48 counterparts are pair 01/50 and pair 50/50. The first of these features an all white upper with a metallic silver Swoosh and yellowed midsole reminiscent of the Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1 “AF100” from 2017, while the second mixes black and metallic silver for a nod to the Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1 “MoMA” from 2018 and adds in some rich purple accents.
A release date for the Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low “The 50” collection has yet to be announced, but Nike has indicated that more info will be made available soon.
