Model: Dunk Low "Velvet Pink" and "Archeo Pink"
Release Date: 2021
Buy: Online at Nike SNKRS US
Editor's Notes: It's been a good year – or bad if you think the release calendar has been oversaturated – for the Nike Dunk Low. Between releases like the "Camo Pack," UNDEFEATED's "5 on It," Virgil Abloh's "The 50," and a spectrum of blocked colors, we've been spoilt for choice.
Unfortunately, not all Swoosh offerings are built the same, with some of the most desirable silhouettes being gender or age-exclusive. Adult Dunk fans that have been on the lookout for a pink colorway to add to their collection have been disappointed so far, with the most recently released pair only arriving in grade school (GS) sizing.
Luckily, Nike is preparing to release two near pink iterations of the Dunk Low, with a pair for kids and adults. Both colorways maintain the silhouette's traditional white leather base and match it with alternate hues of pink – "Archeo Pink" and "Velvet Pink."
For the adults, the "Archeo" features matte, darker-hued contrasts that are a little more wearable; and more akin to the Dunk colorways we've become accustomed to. The second colorway is a kids-exclusive with a paler finish than its full-sized counterpart, almost appearing to give off a velvet gloss.
Like the GS release from earlier in the year, the "Velvet Pink" iteration features some pops of red at the tongue, heel, and insoles.
With these upcoming options set to complete the full-size-run offering, you can finally get pink Nike Dunk Lows for the whole family.
