The 2021-2022 NBA season will mark its diamond 75th anniversary and so to celebrate this occasion, Nike — the league’s official sponsor — will be readying a variety of special Dunk colorways. A NBA-focused makeup with orange, black and white color-blocking has already been previewed, but it looks like team-inspired iterations will also be on the way as this Nike Dunk Low “Brooklyn Nets” variant has just emerged.
Rather than using utilizing the moder-day black and white Brooklyn color schemes, the Swoosh calls upon the franchise’s retro New Jersey hues which immediately sends us back to when Jason Kidd and Vince Carter were the dynamic duo of the team. Toe boxes, quarters and collars are dyed with a muted gray, and come complemented by navy Swooshes and forefoot overlays. The heel overlay is drenched in white and comes marked by a combined Nets logo of the past and present. Instead of the traditional Nike Air branding on the tongues, an NBA logo with a “75th Anniversary” spell out comes in as the replacement. Bottoms are made with crisp white midsoles and come accented with exposed red stitchings and navy outsoles to complete its look.
It’s more than likely that more team-focused renditions will be dropped alongside this installment, but Nike still hasn’t confirmed this.
