The Nike Dunk Low is definitely design flexible. The model comes in the classic college colors. Dunks are also very good with funky designs and storytellings. This is also the case with the Nike Dunk Low Siempre Familia. The new colourway is inspired by the “Día de los Muertos”. We took a closer look at the on-feets.
On November 2nd, the Mexicans remember their dead. It’s actually much happier, louder and more colorful than here on Corpus Christi. That is why the “Dia de los Muertos” deserves a homage. Nike is commemorating what is probably the nation’s biggest holiday again this year and is bringing out a new matching dunk.
Last year, the Day of the Dead collection was all about floral prints. This year, Nike took the lizard as a model. Lizard motifs are traditionally, by hand, very colorfully painted on the holiday. And when we say taken as a model, we mean it: the entire upper is made of flaky leather. The outer panels are all made of darker, speckled scales and the inner elements are made of rich green. The swoosh provides more color. The blue base is completely decorated with colorful patterns that are reminiscent of hand painting. A lizard is embroidered on the outside of the heel. The Nike logo on the heel is painted in the same style as the Swoosh. The midsole is white, the outsole is made of transparent blue. The insole is bright red, decorated with skulls and the words “SiEMPRE Familia”.
We totally celebrate the colorful dunks and are always happy about new stories on the silhouette. The “Día de los muertos” collections are always nice. This year Nike has definitely gone one better with the dunk. We are really looking forward to the release.
An official release date for the Nike Dunk Low Siempre Familia has not yet been announced. Since the Day of the Dead is celebrated from October 31st to November 2nd each year, it will likely appear on the SNKRS app these days as well. For other shops, keep an eye on our release calendar. The dunk will be hard to come by for sure. If you really don’t want to miss anything, download our free app and favor the shoe. Then you won’t miss anything.
