The Nike Dunk Low Retro “Samba” is the remastered version of the former Japan-only colorway from 2001. This new global release of the “Samba” Dunk in 2020 is part of Nike’s strategy of bringing back once-rare Dunk colorways from its Co.Jp initiative. The modern reissue of the “Samba” features the same interesting color block as the “OG,” as navy blue leather can be found on the perforated leather toe, mid-panel, and collar.
Silver leather overlays on the forefoot, collar, and heel bring a stark contrast to the appearance of this low-top shoe. Samba Red leather Swoosh hits appear on either side and black “Nike” embroidery sits atop the red heel tab. Additional design elements include white cotton laces, a blue nylon tongue, and white “Nike” detailing on the navy nylon tongue tab. Release date: August 21, 2020.
