The Dunk has recently received a lot of attention, with the model appearing in everything from breakthrough collaborations to heritage-inspired retros. Nike released the Dunk Low Disrupt in late 2020 to continue the silhouette’s heritage. The classic shapes of the shoe’s upper and outsole were given a fresh injection of vitality, while tried-and-true features like the low-cut, cushioned collar provide all-day comfort.

Like various other Nike models that debuted over the years, the Disrupt—and its successor, the Disrupt 2, which was released in 2022—is a women’s exclusive. The first release came in the form of a simple white and black offering, aptly titled “Black,” followed by several other models with two-tone aesthetics. From there, the sneaker has since pivoted into largely using pastel hues with the addition of more standout debuts like 2021’s “Kid at Heart” and “Supa” among others.

Ahead, we took a look at some of the best Dunk Low Disrupt colorways to release over the past several years, as well as where to shop if you want to cop a pair. Continue scrolling to see some of the most prominent color schemes.

Dunk Low Disrupt Black

In a sleek two-tone treatment, black updates the timeless shape of the Nike Dunk Low. The deconstructed design is completed by the white oversized midsole, which stands out against the black upper and various leather pieces on the eyestays and the heel overlay. The shoe’s black rubber outsole further attests to its hardwood ancestry, completing the look. As the model’s first colorway release, this shoe pairs well with virtually everything from parachute pants to black jeans.

Dunk Low Disrupt White Gym Red

The “White Gym Red” Disrupt is a disruptive design with colorful accents. Inspired by the Air Train from 1984, this pair’s upper is constructed with a mesh foundation covered in neutral leather and finished off with gym red highlights on the tongue tag, lining, and Swoosh logo. There is a pull tab at the back of the heel for putting them on and taking them off, and the sole is made of a thick, cushioned material that transitions into a cool, transparent rubber for traction.

Dunk Low Disrupt Barely Rose

The “Barely Rose” iteration of the Dunk reinterprets the sneaker in a monochromatic color scheme. The upper is constructed from a combination of breathable mesh and leather and is fashioned in a soft pink color. The shoe’s unique design is highlighted by the oversized heel pull tab and the exposed foam tongue that’s finished off with a tonal Nike woven label. The gum rubber outsole provides traction and stability for the perforated midsole.

Dunk Low Disrupt Pale Coral

The Disrupt “Pale Coral” provides a modern take on a classic design with a pastel color scheme once again. Much like the aforementioned iteration, the upper has a two-tone construction with white mesh and pink leather overlays for breathability. The leather pull button at the heel and the soft exposed foam tongue make these shoes a breeze to put on and take off. Meanwhile, the shoe sits on a chunky platform midsole with cleat-like cutouts around the outside edges. Pink finishes the rubber outsole, which is reworked for grip enhancement.

Dunk Low Disrupt Sea Glass Crimson

The “Sea Glass Crimson” color scheme deviates from its predecessors’ two-tone color scheme in favor of orange, white, and turquoise. The upper has an off-white textile base with turquoise leather overlays and an orange Swoosh for good measure. The typical Nike label is sewn into the soft exposed foam tongue, and a pull tab at the heel is colored to match the rest of the shoe. Furthermore, the low top is supported by a segmented platform midsole and a transparent turquoise rubber outsole.

Dunk Low Disrupt Supa

With a collaborative SB Dunk appropriate for any Knicks fan, Danny Supasirirat was largely influenced by New York City heritage while creating the 2002 colorway “Supa.” Without the skater’s participation, this Disrupt release comes surprisingly close to the original. For starters, the orange and blue color schemes are apparent very immediately. 

The blue hue, which is used less often than its counterpart, adorns the labeling, lining, and heel pull. The orange color appears on top of the overlays, making the complete color scheme pop next to the predominance of cream in the underlay and the coordinating lace unit.

Dunk Low Disrupt Ghost

The uppers of the Disrupt “Ghost” model are made of mesh instead of the traditional white, smooth leather. However, the sand-colored Swoosh and heel tab loop are made of the signature textile. Pebbled leather in the titular greyish-purple tint is used for overlays throughout the model, introducing another material and color. 

Meanwhile, the insole, tongue label, and sole are all done in the purple hue as well. The translucent outsole completes the style and calls to mind the ice-blue bottoms of previous releases from the footwear label. This sneaker debuted in early 2021, taking on various design cues from its forerunners.

Dunk Low Disrupt Dandy Dandelions

Since most of the Disrupt’s 2021 hues have had a monochromatic aesthetic, the arrival of numerous pastels and a whimsical surprise in the form of “Dandy Dandelions” is a welcome change of pace. The bulk of the top is colored in sea glass and seafoam, with the latter color animating the majority of the model’s characteristic overlays. The shoe is outfitted with eco-friendly materials from the upper to the lining to the outsole, with cork being the most prominent of them. In addition to the aforementioned dandelion embellishment, the shoes’ organic concept is also supported by the shoe’s leather construction.

Dunk Low Disrupt Multi-Color

The Dunk Low Disrupt “Multicolor” offers a happy mishmash of tones and textures, thanks to the way its leather and mesh upper blends primary and secondary colors. Midway up, a huge black leather Swoosh draws attention to the bright yellow quarter panels, which are complemented with navy eyestays and a Swoosh in the center. The mudguard is a deep green, while the heels, gigantic heel tabs, and collar flaps are all red.

The laces are also a deep navy color, while the mesh collar arrives in a steely gray and the exposed foam tongue and toe box appear bright white. The upper portion is completed with a black Nike Sportswear tongue logo and a royal blue collar trim. To complete the aesthetic, thick white midsoles are paired with black outsoles.

Dunk Low Disrupt Lucky Charms

Instagram culture has popularized the idea of accessorizing shoes with bling, and Nike wasted no time cashing in on the trend. The “Lucky Charms” colorway is a new take on the classic Dunk silhouette, with a higher platform and elongated silhouette aimed at appealing to women. The remainder of the design is taken up by gold charm bracelets dangling from the medial and lateral edges of the shoe. 

The Nike shoebox, a basketball, the Swoosh, and the Nike emblem all make an appearance on the charms. This otherwise plain sneaker stands out because of its charming all-white design, which extends from the uppers to the rubber soles.

Dunk Low Disrupt Kid at Heart

The “Kid at Heart” model is another women’s variant of the Dunk Low Disrupt, and it has some of the most eye-catching colors and design elements are seen on any of the sneakers in the line to date. The uppers are a hybrid construction of patent leather and tightly woven ballistic mesh. The toes are a pale teal, the sides are a sunny yellow, and the backs are a striking fiery orange. Red mudguards and eyestays, together with sport blue heel parts and collar flaps, complete the trifecta. One of the identifying characteristics comes from the color flaps, which include star, heart, and Swoosh motifs reminiscent of sticker art.

A flowery “sticker” bordering the Nike Sportswear logo on the transparent tongue tag complements the pink clamshell tongue’s exposed foam structure. The bright orange heel tabs are a winking reference to cloth backpacks with a transparent plastic load-lifting strap. The shoes have a sail-like midsole and a transparent outsole covered in glittering gold.

Dunk Low Disrupt Coconut Milk

The “Coconut Milk” colorway of the Dunk Low Disrupt is the first to drop in 2022, after a slew of Disrupt 2 releases. The textile uppers have been accented with tumbled leather for a touch of texture that breaks up the otherwise monochrome design. The sole is particularly distinctive, complementing the base’s deconstructed aesthetic with its blocky form and added height. The appearance is finished off by the exposed foam tongue, making them a more daring alternative to the standard all-white tennis shoe.
