Nike has been releasing Nike Dunk sneakers since 1985. With so many Nike Dunk sneakers on the market, you’d think the company would run out of ideas, but they still manage to make their latest Dunks unique. In a few months, the company is expected to release the Nike Dunk Low Reverse Panda silhouette. It will retail for $110 and will be available on Nike’s website and select retail stores globally.
The silhouette uses the popular “Panda” colorway in grayscale, except the colors have been reversed. The black colourway is now on the heel branding, tongue labels, insoles and midsoles, while the white color has been reserved for the Swooshes, overlays, lining and outsole. After describing how the sneakers look like, it’s time to explore their parts in detail. Below are five features of the Nike Dunk Low Reverse Panda sneakers.
The upper of the sneakers is made of leather
Leather is a breathable material, which makes it the right material to use for footwear. According to Favored Leather, its breathability comes from being a good insulator and having pores. Thanks to its breathability, it ensures the ventilation of your feet. Not only does the ventilation keep your feet cool in hot weather, it also eliminates the sweat responsible for foot odor. Another advantage of the material is that it provides a good fit, unlike plastic.
The leather is elastic, which means it can stretch as much as it can to fit your entire foot. Since it fits well, you won’t feel like these sneakers are pinching you. Its elasticity also makes it durable. So no matter how far you stretch the material, it won’t break or stay out of shape. In addition, the material is easy to clean. When various substances fall on the material, they do not cling to it. Therefore, you just need to wipe them with water and a cloth.
Outsoles are rubber
You will be shocked at the number of Americans admitted to hospital due to slip and fall accidents. According to Adam S. Kutner, 12% of Americans are admitted each year due to slips and falls. Luckily, you can avoid such mishaps thanks to this silhouette’s rubber outsole. The rubber is non-slip as it provides a firm grip on slippery surfaces. Therefore, you can walk on muddy paths without fear of slipping.
The other merit of rubber outsoles is that they are good shock absorbers. When you walk or run, your feet touch the ground. If the feet continuously strike the feet, a shock will be generated. Shock is what causes blisters on your feet, but luckily the rubber absorbs the shock, so you won’t suffer any injuries while on the move. In fact, you won’t feel the hard surface you’re walking on. Finally, the material provides protection against burns. If you accidentally step on spilled acid or harsh chemicals, there’s no need to panic. The material cannot deform or melt in the presence of these substances because it is heat resistant.
Each sneaker has a pair of extra lacing holes
Some people may assume that the extra lace holes are cosmetic, but they are very beneficial. First, the extra holes allow you to create a style of lacing called a runner’s knot. According to Houston Methodist, the purpose of the knot is to take pressure off the top of your foot. Since the knot does not put pressure on the foot, you will be able to loosen the laces on the bottom of the foot. As a result, the extra lacing holes are there to minimize foot pain.
Additionally, the role of the runner’s knot is to firmly hold your heel in place. This means your foot won’t slide forward and hit the front of your shoe. It can be an excruciating experience if you accidentally hit your foot against a rock. Luckily, if you use the runner’s knot, you can even hit anything without your foot moving in the shoe.
Sneakers contain EVA insoles
These soles provide comfort to the wearer since they absorb shocks. This makes these trainers ideal for walking or standing for long periods of time as you won’t feel any pain when moving. Its effective shock absorption ability can be attributed to the fact that it is made from a dense foam polymer. In addition to acting as a shock absorbing agent, it provides warmth to your feet.
It provides warmth as it acts as an extra insulating layer between your foot and the cold surface you are walking on. Even though the following feature has nothing to do with wearer comfort, it is still important to mention that they are environmentally friendly. During the manufacture of these soles, no chlorine is used. As a result, less toxic waste is dumped into land or water. So if you are an environmental enthusiast, you will be happy to own these sneakers.
Stems contain perforations
Even if their main role is not aesthetic, one can only admire the perforations. The perforations are spaced such that they are neither too far apart nor too close to each other. These perforations allow your feet to be ventilated. We’ve established that leather provides ventilation, but with more perforations, you’ll appreciate the fact that you’ll barely smell your feet. In addition to providing ventilation, the shoes wick excess water away from your feet. Excess water can get on your feet after accidentally stepping on a puddle. The perforations are large enough to allow water to escape, but too small to let much water into the shoes.
“Comfortable” is the right word to describe the Nike Dunk Low Reverse Panda sneakers. Some runners wear shoes that cause pain or exhaust them. If you are a runner who has suffered because of a bad shoe choice, you will not suffer anymore with these sneakers. Plus, these shoes are durable, so you won’t have to replace them for a long time. Let’s face it; replacing worn shoes is expensive. Fortunately, you can reduce these costs by getting these shoes.
