Nike Dunk 9782

Nike Dunk 9782 is a member of the wide Nike Dunks family, alongside the likes of Nike Dinosaur Junior, the Nike Dunk 9783, the Nike Dunk 9764 and the Nike Dunk Hi NL - to name but a few members of this Nike sub-category. Personally, I had never gotten to know what it is that people found so attractive in high Dunks, that is, before I got to use the Nike Dunk 9782, a shoe with which I have since gotten so thoroughly enchanted with, that it has come to be my favorite sports shoe in the rack.

Although not explicitly labeled as a 'high' dunk, the Nike 9782 is as high as they all come. This height is achieved in a number of ways. For starters, Nike Dunk 9782 comes with quite an elevated sole, so that the lowest portion of the shoe's main body is to be found at least 3/4 of an inch above ground - thanks to the high sole. The main body starts out quite flat though, and the front part of shoe (the section where the toes go in and the adjacent area) is more or less flat, a measure that Nike has probably put in place to ensure the comfort of the wearer. At about the middle of the shoe, however, a gradient emerges, and goes on to peak at the tip of the shoe's tongue - which is the highest point on the shoe. From this highest point, Nike Dunk 9782 recedes sharply in height as you go towards the back, so that at the very back end of it, it is quite short; once again probably in making for a more comfortable experience to the wearer.

Even by the sheer look of it, Nike 9782 is obviously a hardy shoe, designed for use even in the most rough of circumstances. Nike's choice of base material for it seems to aver to this fact - whether you look at the shoe's sole or the shoe's main body.

The particular pair of the Nike 9782 I have is basically grey in color, with considerable portions of cream color incorporated into its main body. One of those portions of cream is to be found where the Nike 'tick' on the shoe starts off, with another portion of cream on the front section of the shoe immediately preceding the base of the shoe's 'tongue.' The shoe's sole is basically black, but incorporating speckles of cream on it.

For a tying mechanism, Nike makes use a simple shoe lace on this particular dunk. As such, Nike Dunk 9782 comes with 7 pairs of shoe thread holes (14 holes, that is), which is quite a modest number for a shoe of this size. Of course, you need not thread-up all the 14 shoe-lace places on the Nike Dunk 9782, as you can get away with as few as only three pairs threaded up.

The Nike 'Tick' on the Nike Dunk 9782 is absolutely white in color - and elongated to the very back of the shoe, to emerge and terminate on the opposite side of the shoe's main body, in keeping with the trend in modern 'Nike Tick' shoe signatures.
