Believe it or not, the Nike Dunk is turning 30 years old this year and to celebrate NikeLab is giving it luxurious upgrade with the new Dunk Lux High. The streamlined design uses a sleeker last removing excess bulk in the toe cap and any excess foam in the heel.

Comfort was also a big priority as they've added a drop-in Lunarlon insole for lightweight cushioning. The shoe's upper gets a full-grain leather upgrade with memory foam in the shoe's collar and tongue while the quilt-stitch detailing further emphasizes the luxurious approach to the sneaker. 

The Dunk Lux High will be available in black or white at NikeLab 21 Mercer and NikeLab DSM in NY on February 9th and select NikeLab locations and on February 12th.
