In recent weeks, the leaker account py_rates has suggested that a handful of sneaker stores are rumored to be dropping Dunk High collabs during this year’s holiday season, including Slam Jam and Bodega. Now, Notre is also expected to drop two iterations of the Dunk High including a tonal beige makeup along with a white-based colorway contrasted by blue Swoosh branding and purple outsole. Although early images of the shoe have not yet leaked, mock-up photos were provided in its place.
Notre and Nike have not yet confirmed its rumored Nike Dunk High collab.
UPDATE (01/14): The release details behind Notre’s Nike Dunk High collab have been unveiled. For this project, the Chicago-based boutique’s co-founders Michael Jaworowski and Jose Villanueva and the rest of the Notre team paid homage to the hard-working, Midwestern attitude with their collaborative Dunks by using durable materials and the triple-stitch details generally featured on hard-wearing apparel and boots. Additional details include Notre’s trademark linking hands design featured on the medial Swoosh branding.
“We were always inspired by work shirts, and we wanted to make sure we represented durable materials and the triple-stitch details we associate with hard-wearing clothing and boots,” says Villanueva.
The Notre x Nike Dunk High collab will be released at Notre on Jan. 21 with the tan colorway dropping exclusively at the boutique. A second release of the blue colorway follows on Jan. 23 on SNKRS.
