UPDATE: Official images of the Nike Dunk Low “Red Panda” coloraway have surfaced. Detailed shots of the pair allow you to see the myriad of terrycloth, sultry suede and smooth leather materials that make up the toe boxes and side walls as well as the woven material that forms the tongues.
Throughout the decade thus far, the sneaker market has been exposed to mass “Panda”-monium. Thanks to Nike and the Dunk Low, black and white kicks have spawned a generation of sneakerheads that cherish the color combination’s versatility. Capitalizing on this craze, Nike has not only restocked its most sought-after “Panda” Dunks countless times, it has reworked the approach in many different ways. The latest to appear with the “Panda” name is a clever “Red Panda” colorway.
Diverting from the typical black and white look, the “Red Panda” is a colorful twist that places white next to dark gray, rust orange and black hits. The pair’s presentation begins with a hairy dark gray base. Its unique construction continues with white leather at the eyestays, mudguard and Swooshes. Bringing color into the mix, the aforementioned rust orange adorns the suede heel’s overlays, matching the black and white tongue’s tag with orange Nike branding both there and at the heel. Supporting the sneaker, a black midsole is joined by a dark brown rubber outsole.
As of now, no release information pertaining to the Nike Dunk Low in this new “Red Panda” colorway has been disclosed by Nike. Look for it to hit the Swoosh and select retailers by the end of 2023.
