The Nike Dunk High may have transitioned from dominating the basketball courts to reigning over street style, but its hoops heritage isn't something it shies away from. Embracing its origins, the silhouette continually finds ways to nod to its past, often through colorways and materials that echo the echoes of basketball culture — none more so than this new Nike Dunk High "Hemp Hoops"
This tradition is evident in the recurring “EMB” series, where each iteration of the Dunk High pays tribute to the sport that started it all. At first glance, you might miss the homage, as the conventional leathers give way to an unexpected blend of hemp and suede. In harmonious shades of light brown and understated blue, these elements construct the entirety of the upper, introducing a tactile experience that diverges from the norm.
Yet, it's the accents that drive the basketball tribute home. Contrasting the earthy tones, vibrant pops of deep orange — reminiscent of a basketball's warm, rich hue — find their place on the woven label, heel tab, and the conspicuous “Official Nike Basketball” insignia. These subtle yet intentional details reaffirm the sneaker's tribute to its athletic roots.
