Get a First Look at the Nike Dunk Low “Purple Pulse”

The “it” sneaker for Spring 2021.

It’s officially spring time and the pastels are here to stay. 

A shoe originally created for NCAA athletes, the Dunk quickly found its own audience after coming in second best to the Jordan I. In 2020 after major collabs with Off White and Travis Scott, the sneaker has found itself back at the top of every hypebeast’s wishlist. 

Nike continues to add new Dunk Low’s to their collection and the sneaker community is all the more thankful. With the anticipation of the newest addition “Purple Pulse” teased to be released sometime in Spring 2021 amongst an array of other colorways as well. These sneakers are kept simple with a white leather base with lilac overlays, accompanied by traditional branding, and subtle Dunk details such as the rubber outsole. 

Historically, Nike has released sneakers primarily in men’s sizes but as of lately women’s exclusive drops have become more prevalent – forcing men to buy women’s sizes. In recent years, sneaker retailers have become a lot more inclusive to women opening up the conversation about what streetwear will look like moving forward.

Although Nike has not confirmed a specific release date, the “Purple Pulse” will be set at $100 USD.
