  • Candy is a pastel-hued Dunk Low that appears as Easter egg colors cracked on the upper. 
  • Free 99 also comes in eye-candy shades with either a white or black undertone. Compared to the feminine-like Candy variation, this offers a more generic vibe. 
  • Crazy Camo, also called Sail Multi Camo, is overloaded with varied shades of camouflage prints.
  • NY vs. NY colors partially mimics the state flag with a bright orange Swoosh embracing the shoe from the mid-panel.
