What We’re Saying: In the midst of releasing new colorways and a slew of collaborations, Nike is still finding time to revisit past takes on the Dunk. The forthcoming “Dusty Olive” iteration falls into the latter category, as it references the “Ugly Duckling” pack from 2001.

Following numerous teasers, Nike has finally shared official imagery and release information for the “Dusty Olive” Dunk Low. Drawing from a Japan-exclusive style from 20 years ago, the colorway is a flip of one of three pairs from the aforementioned “Ugly Duckling” collection. Here, we find Pro Gold accents complementing the Dusty Olive and Brown base via the Nike branding on the side, tongue, and insoles, as well as the heel padding, outsole, and laces. The upper of the shoe is constructed from buttery suede to give it a more luxe feel.

OG Nike heads will likely be drawn to this particular colorway of the Dunk due to its connection to the early 2000s “Ugly Duckling” pack. If you find yourself hoping to secure a pair, you’ll have a chance when the “Dusty Olive” Dunk Low releases through Nike SNKRS on June 17 at 10 a.m.

For more Dunks, here are the best to release so far this year.
