These white Nike Dunk Low pay homage to the Air Force 1
In the last few months we've seen a variety of Nike Dunk Low models in all sorts of colors. To name just a few: the Ben & Jerry's Nike Dunk Low, the Nike Dunk Low University Red, the Nike Dunk Low Samba or the Nike SB Dunk Low from Cilvilist Berlin. But what we haven't seen yet is an all-white Nike Dunk Low.
The Nike Dunk Low is now also available in the “Triple White” version
How does this color scheme match this model? Well it looks really good. When a model comes out in white, you can really appreciate the design. And of course they are the ideal look for the summer. From the Nike Air Force 1 to the Nike Air Max 90, all-white sneakers are obviously a summertime ritual for Nike sub-label Nike Sportswear.

This year, swoosh brand Airline added another model: the ultra-popular Nike Dunk Low. Unintentionally, this low-cut Dunk is reminiscent of the Nike Air Force 1, which is a slightly chunky, mid-cut sneaker.
This is what characterizes the Nike Dunk Low "Triple White".
As is usual with any "Triple White" sneaker, this Nike Dunk Low features a clean upper that's almost entirely leather and comes in an all-white finish except for the black Nike label on the nylon tongue. The midsole and outsole also don't stray from this color palette, staying monochrome to complete the look.
The Nike Dunk Low is not a new model. And while it's currently listed in the skate shoe category in Nike's catalogue, it wasn't designed as such. The shoe's history dates back to the mid-'80s: Designed by Peter Moore, the man responsible for a little-known trainer called the Air Jordan I, the Dunk's working title was College Color High. The Nike Dunk incorporates some of Nike Basketball's biggest hits into its design, such as the Nike Terminator and the Air Jordan I. In its first incarnation, the Dunk was a shoe meant for playing basketball. Today, however, they prevail on the streets. (Also read: Guaranteed Success: 5 Sneakers That Lived Up to Their Hype)
