The Nike Dynasty has already been re-released, but the design was not true to the original. The Nike Dynasty '81 is. Nike did not modify the layout of the paneling on the upper, and they did not add an ankle strap to this model. So, what you have is a Nike Dynasty sneaker that identically resembles the classic design. They feature a leather upper, Phylon midsole and a rubber outsole with herringbone pattern. Just like in '81.
