8. Wrapping

Nike Dunk Low Grateful Deads will come with one layer of wrapping. The paper will be slightly matte with a wood texture pattern printed in black on the top side.

11. Heel

High quality stitching can be hard to replicate. Check carefully that the stitching on the heel is tight, straight, evenly spaced and follows the edge of each panel perfectly. Tip: check the join between the upper and outsole does not have any excess glue showing.

15. Tongue Pocket

A unique feature of the Dunk Low Grateful Deads is the tongue pocket. Check the design and shape of the zip carefully. Note the blue lining of the pocket, and the stitch line from the Dancing Bear logo showing through to the inside of the pocket.

21. Spare Laces

Nike Dunk Low Grateful Deads come with one set of spare laces. Make sure they are high quality, tubular woven laces. They are blue in color and feature the same lace caps as the original yellow laces. They are packaged in one clear plastic bag. Take note of the cable that joins the spare laces to the shoes; it has a cone-shaped locking mechanism. Check the shape of the plastic bag, as well as the position of the hole drilled through the top for the cable.
