In continuation of Nike's commemoration of the Dunk, the latest pack has surfaced for a shoe once created as the quintessential team shoe for colleges all around but has now transcended sport and culture alike. The Eastern pack references Eastern countries with strong footballing backgrounds, inspired by both flags and football kits of teams alike. This seasons’ design direction stands out for its remix of 2 major Nike sports: basketball and football. It’s where two extremes meet on one shoe. But mostly, it’s about Being True to the principles of sports and innovation.
The collection draws inspiration on the European football games taking place this summer as a starting point, and continues with a world tour of football, from Europe to Asia, ending with the ultimate football celebrating country, Brazil.
The world tour of creative inspiration continued with the Eastern Pack, which resulted in colourways that allude to the Asian hotbeds of football fandom. Rounding out the football inspired collection, the Brazil 08 Pack marks the 10th anniversary of the iconic football boot, the Nike Mercurial. A Dunk in Varsity Blue, Maize, and Grey colourway and using the same materials as the Mercurial will be introduced in Summer 08.
