THE NIKE DUNK LOW ‘REVERSE CURRY’ WAS THE ELUSIVE GRAIL. NOW, IT’S BACK

Some trainers are rare and make people spend lots of money. But others, like the Nike Dunk Low ‘Reverse Curry,’ are rare. Originally released back in 1999, not only were they made exclusively for a Japan release, they were also sold in very specific stores. That made it pretty much impossible for anyone outside of the country to cop. But now, with its 25th anniversary coming up just around the corner, Nike is finally bringing the Dunk Low ‘Reverse Curry’ to the rest of the world. And yet again, people will probably spend a lot of money.

Nike Dunk Low ‘Reverse Curry

First released as part of the CO.JP line (which is shorthand for Concept Japan), the 2023 re-release stays true to the original blueprint. Outfitted in all-leather, the base is painted in ‘Dark Curry’ and is overlaid by white panels across the toebox, lacing system, and collar. A complementary Swoosh shoots through the lateral and medial sidewalls, and just like the OG from a quarter of a century ago, you’ll find additional Nike branding stitched on the tongue tag and heel badge.

Look underneath, and the midsole is infused with rubber for extra bounciness and comfiness (because the Dunk is a basketball shoe, at the end of the day), and it’s rounded off with a golden brown outsole.

This isn’t the only Japan-exclusive Dunk that’s set to make a comeback next year. Both the ‘Brazil’ and ‘Plum’ will also be boomeranging right back, so if you’re a big fan of the silhouette, 2024 is going to be one expensive year.

Nike Dunk Low ‘Reverse CurryThe Nike Dunk Low ‘Reverse Curry’ is scheduled to restock sometime in Spring 2024 for £110. Unlike its original release, it’ll be available via Nike, the Snkrs app, and select stockists worldwide – big news for sneakerheads who took an L the first time around (which was pretty much all of us).
