Nike launches a new iteration of the Dunk Low sneaker model that comes in a Light Iron Ore colorway palette. The shoes are detailed with greyscale hues throughout the entire silhouette. Starting off with a bright white applied along the traditional smooth leather panels, it is joined by perforated details at the quarters, collars, and toe boxes.
Glossy details can be seen with the patent leather done in the Light Iron Ore color around the toe boxes as the Swoosh and heels are detailed in a stark black. Pops of University Red can be seen in the form of some Nike branding details that are found along the heels and the tongue sections -- the new colorway is dropping in the coming weeks.
