argon dunks Classics Revisited: Nike Dunk Low Argon (2002)


Prior to the explosion of Dunks thanks to Nike Skateboarding and other collaborations, Japan was responsible for making the Dunk Low a relevant shoe. The mid-80′s basketball shoe turned street-wear powerhouse was insanely popular in the Far East, with the Japan-exclusive City Attack Series of the late 1990′s serving as one of firestarters of Dunk-prominence in the first-half of 2000. Of course, all of these Dunks were mere assemblies of great colors without the need of a superfluous gimmick, with a perfect example being the release of the ‘Argon’. Prior to the neon sneaker craze, the Argon Dunk was one of the more electrifying sneakers around; the punchy tone of Argon Blue gave the shoe a distinct personality and gave away to other high-contrast colorways that became popular years later. Brand new Argon Dunk Lows are as tough of a find as any, so give the gallery of tonight’s Classics Revisited below a look if you’re not familiar with the shoe, or if you’re looking to re-live one of your personal favorites.

Classics Revisited: Nike Dunk Low “Silver Surfer” (2004)

silver surfer dunk low Classics Revisited: Nike Dunk Low Silver Surfer (2004)


The infusion of our favorite Marvel Superhero characters into sneakers has been more of a fantasy scenario than a reality (branding issues being the primary roadblock to any true Marvel x Nike partnership), but some unofficial bones have been thrown our way. Of course, the Fantastic Four Pack of 2006 is one that comes to mind, but prior to that Nike had a unique interest in the intergalactic traveler known as Silver Surfer; two colorways of the Dunk Low as well as two Air Max 90s were released in honor of the Silver Surfer, with Surfer graphics on the insoles solidifying the true intent of these releases. Of the bunch, this colorway of the Nike Dunk Low deserves some extra attention thanks to the sleek colorway, unique mesh-like layer on the toe, center panel, and ankle, and of course, the Silver Surfer insole. These were released only at select retailers and zeroing in on a pair isn’t an easy task, as even the online find-anything medium known as eBay is a hit-or-miss affair. More of this Classics Revisited Dunk Low below, so give it a look and let us know if you’re finding out about the Silver Surfer Dunks for the first time today!

Classics Revisited: Nike Dunk Low Pro B “Smurf” (1999)

smurf nike dunk lows Classics Revisited: Nike Dunk Low Pro B Smurf (1999)


Nike Skateboarding is still going ten years strong, and perhaps the original Dunk Low Pro B deserves all the credit. Truth is, Nike has tried to elbow into the Skateboarding realm three times over the years, failing on the first two tries. It was only until the first official series of Nike SB in 2002 that it gained any steam, but in 1999, Nike had already released a similar variation of the Dunk Low that suited the needs of skaters. Going back to the 80′s, the Dunk and Air Jordan 1 were widely popular in the skating community, so why not make the Dunk into a skate shoe? The Pro B was born, built with durable suede uppers, gum outsoles for increased traction and board feel, and a fattened tongue for that added substance that skaters find useful in their shoes. Before Nike SB became ‘a thing’, the Nike Dunk Low Pro B was becoming a cult-hit of sorts, leading Nike to release more Pro B colorways in the following years at select retailers. Some of the Pro B releases carry as much weight as the earliest Nike SB releases, with the Smurfs owning the role as the ‘OG’ of the short-lived Dunk Low Pro B family.

Classics Revisited: KICKS/HI x Nike Dunk Low “Aloha” (2004)

nke dunk low aloha 2004 Classics Revisited: KICKS/HI x Nike Dunk Low Aloha (2004)


Starting off our week of Dunk Low classics is, not surprisingly, a collaboration with a internationally-respected sneaker boutique located in one of the most picturesque locales in the world – KICKS Hawaii. Nike’s Jesse Leyva and KICKS/HI teamed up for this Dunk Low design in 2004 in which the Ian Ginoza, the creative mind behind the KICKS/HI label, was given the opportunity to represent the culture and scenery of their home state. The result was clearly representative of the laid-back style of luaus and beach-front parties, with the green/brown/beige colorway and weaved ‘Lauhala’ bamboo mid-panel. One of the more unique features of this Dunk Low seen in a very small amount of other releases is that the tongue label as well as the stitched embroidery on the heel have been switched from the customary Nike label to ‘ALOHA’ on the tongue and ‘HAWAII’ on the heel-tabs. Today, the Aloha Dunks are likely in the possession of hardcore Dunk Low aficionados, but you can still find them around today around the $200-250 range. More of this great Dunk Low release below, so take a gander and stay tuned for more of Dunk Low-centric Classics Revisited this week!
