Not many people are returning to the office just yet, but if you’re one of those who prefer to dress the part in order to get in hustle mode, Nike Sportswear’s latest collaboration with Chicago-based boutique Notre might be your jam.

Their new Nike x Notre Dunk silhouette brings corporate aesthetics to the staple Dunk High sneakers with workwear-inspired materials and constructions, as well as formal color palettes.

The footwear is designed with “materials that’ll look better the harder you thrash them,” Notre describes, such as heavy canvas, suede and leather. And the brands mean business—the sneakers are strengthened with triple-stitching, along with a tongue patch that nods at the vintage workshirt.

Each pair arrives with remixed co-branding depicting Nike’s Swoosh with Notre’s handshake emblem. Due to subtle texture and color variations, no two pairs are identical.

If you dig this business-casual design, you can purchase the Nike x Notre Dunk at the Notre store on 21 January. A blue colorway will be made available on Nike’s SNKRS app on 23 January.
