The Nike Dunk High 6.0 – 342257 is one of the most notable products in the ‘high’ Nike dunks family. This is a family it shares with among other notable products, the Barricade Transformers Customs High Nike Dunks, the Custom Red Bull High Nike Dunks, the oddly-named Hi SBTX (x) Lazy Nike, the 6.0 Black Coral High Nike Dunk and the rather rare Pharrell High Nike Dunk. I must confess, though, that of all Nike that have come into my possession at various points in previous years, it is the Nike 6.0 – 342257 that I have gotten most enchanted with.

If the Nike 6.0 – 342257 is notable for one thing, then that thing is height; for this is a spectacularly tall toe. Most of the height on this shoe is built into its upper body, for its sole (while considerably thick by ordinary shoe standards) is still relatively modest by Nike standards. As one would expect in a ‘dunk,’ the gradient that makes Nike 6.0 – 342257 a tall shoe starts building on the front part of the shoe, immediately past the part where the toes go in – and goes on unabated up to the highest point of the shoe; the middle portion where the tongue of the shoe meets the trunk of the dunk-wearer’s foot.

Another thing for which the Nike High 6.0 – 342257 is notable is color; for this is a truly colorful shoe. Indeed, on my particular pair of it, I can identify at least seven unique colors. At the very bottom, on the part of the sole that is in contact with the ground, there is red (a very darkened hue of it). Slightly further up, we have white, which adorns the upper portion of the sole; the portion at which the sole gets connects to the shoe’s main body. On top of the section where the toes go in, and on the patch where the Nike tick originates (as well as another patch towards the back of the shoe), we have purple. There is red, this time a lighter hue of it, in a patch towards the back of the shoe. Then there is yellow, on the patches where the shoelace holes are to be found as well as light-blue, which colors both the Nike Tick on Nike 6.0 – 342257, and the original pair of shoelaces the dunk comes with.

At least three Nike ticks can be identified on this shoe. There is one of the bottom part of the sole, another one on a small patch towards the tip of the ‘shoe’s tongue’ and of course, the main one on the shoe’s body; which, as on all modern Nike dunks, extends all the way to the very back end of the shoe – to emerge on the opposite end of the shoe.

To keep the shoe in place, Nike providers the wearer with the traditional shoelace – with provision for up to 18 shoelace places, in 9 pairs.
