nike-sportswear-nylon-dunk-hi-pack-front Nike Sportswear x Nylon Magazine Dunk Hi Pack | A Detailed Look

After several teasers and yesterdays presentation of the editorial spread in the Nylon May 2009 issue, we can finally give you a detailed look at the Dunk Hi Pack, that the magazine created in collaboration with Nike Sportswear.

The pack overall consists of five fluorescent colorways of the Dunk Hi, all featuring a nylon/leather upper, coming in tonal colors. As flashy the colors are, they kept the rest of the sneaker simple and tonal, which works out really nice. The Nylon font logo goes over the entire sneaker, but one has to look close to even notice it. The Swoosh and other details come in leather and the laces, as well as lining also match the upper colors. A multicolor Nylon logo has been placed on the tongue tag.

Overall a very refreshing pack of Dunk Hi’s, just in time for summer. Look out for these to be released very soon.

Nylon produced a nice video feature, giving you a behind the scenes look of the photoshoot. Check that out here.

After the jump many detailed images of the Nike Sportswear x Nylon Dunk Hi Pack.
