A few days ago, news broke of the multi-colored, modern classic Nike Dunk “Viotech” getting a re-release. Today, we bring you a detailed look at this suede and mesh banger, a shoe Toucan Sam would be proud of.
While the shoe is most definitely a re-release of the Nike Dunk “Viotech”, which originally released in 2002, there are a few differences when compared to the original, something Jordan heads are now painfully used to with every new release of a classic model. In this case, the main difference is in the colors. While the shoes use the same colors for the upper, the hues of those colors are slightly different on the two releases. For instance, the blue used on the toebox is a bright royal on the OG version, whereas the 2013 version features a blue closer to navy than royal; the rear panel and outsole, purple on the 2002 version, utilizes a maroon-tinted purple on the new version. Also, the 2013 version features a black leather “Nike” tag on the tongue, as opposed to the typical “Nike” tag found on most Dunks. Lastly, the grey “Nike” tab on the heel of the shoe is completely grey, whereas on the OG release, the word “Nike” is in black, allowing it to stand out from its grey backdrop. The shoe features Zoom insoles for added comfort, because, after all, it’s not only about stunting on cats with fruity-colored kicks, now is it?
News on the US release date has yet to drop, but you can be sure Sneaker Files will keep you posted. For now, the shoe is an Asian-only, but a US release is likely. Keep it locked here for more info as it comes, and check out this detailed look after the jump.
