Nike Dunk Low Premium QS
This Nike Dunk Low Premium QS presents a cuddly twist on the classic black and white colorway, creating a unique sneaker that is called Ueno Panda after the famous park in Tokyo. Its outsole is completely white, with ringed grip lines surrounding a central circle under the forefoot which allows the wearer to pivot easily. Below the arch is a set of Nike text, and the heel contains a loop of chunky lugs that provide stability underfoot. Resting atop this is a black midsole that offers comfort to complement the traction gained from the outsole. It does so via its filling of soft foam, while the shallow groove running round its top edge adds an intriguing look to the shoe.
Meanwhile, on the upper, a cozy synthetic fur covers the whole design from heel to toe. On the forefoot mudguard and the eyestay, this fuzzy textile is black, while that on the toe box, midfoot and rear overlay is white. The collar also contains this furry coating, before the heel panel switches to black leather. Nike lettering has been embroidered into this last feature, and emerging from either side of it is a black swoosh in the same high-quality material. Each logo stretches through the faux fur of the flanks to rest assuredly on its respective midfoot panel.
Over the top of the foot, everything is black, from the laces to the eyestay to the tongue. The same can be said of the smooth inner lining, which is marked with a series of tiny dimples. Then, the insole changes things up entirely. It has been decorated with a mesmerizing graphic in light red and blue tones that represents the Japanese park that the shoe was named after. The final deft touch on this eye-catching sneaker can be found across the black woven tongue patch as the name of the park – Ueno – stands out upon the dark background in pristine white calligraphy.
