Nike World Cup Dunk AC High's

Nike have followed the same vein set by their Blazer High World Cup collection by producing a trio of Nike Dunk AC High's which also celebrate this year's World Cup Finals. As with the Blazer High World Cup collection, Nike collaborate with the well known graphic artists Kronk, So Me and Delta in order to re-design the classic Nike Dunk basketball trainer, with each trainer design relating to the nation of the respective artist.

I have always been a fan of Nike's Dunk high trainer, one of their most celebrated and recognisable models. In the past few years there have been some poor designs that have attempted to recreate the success of the 'Stay True To Your School' days. However, this latest release is much more successful than those that have gone before it, with the simple design and cool colourways staying true to the roots of the Dunk High. It's a bit strange seeing a basketball trainer re-designed for the football World Cup, but it's something which works really well, especially in the Netherlands design by Delta, which my favourite of the collection with its wonderful colour way.

These trainers have been released in limited numbers, and the only places I think you'll be able to find them are in independent specialist trainer stores and also a select few of Nike's flagship stores, with Nike Town in London (236 Oxford Street, London, W1C 1DE) probably being your best bet if you live in an area close London.
