It’s only right that for its 35th anniversary, the Nike Dunk returned to its origins: North American colleges. As was the case in 1985 with the “Be True To Your School” collection, the silhouette’s most recognizable and coveted styles of 2020 were two-tone arrangements borrowing the University of Kentucky, Syracuse and St. John’s team colors. For its fifth decade on the market, however, the model revisited “Varsity Royal,“ “Orange Blaze” and “University Red” tones on its Nike Dunk Low trim, not High. Yet, collectors–both old and new–enjoyed all three pairs, despite their shorter silhouette. If you missed out on any or want to re-up, head over to eBay right now to secure a “W” before the year ends.

Regardless of who you credit for the mainstream dominance of the Nike Dunk, one thing is undebatable: The silhouette owes a lot of its cachet to Nike SB. While no longer exclusively enjoyed by diehard skaters and the local skateshops they frequent, the Nike SB Dunk Low continues being a performance shoe. Sure, a “Chunky Dunky” collaboration with Ben & Jerry’s may be owned by more people that don’t know what an ollie is than do, but it serves as yet another testament to skateboarding’s influence on culture-at-large. And the ice cream-related pair wasn’t the sole culprit: Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” and atmos “Elephant”-reminiscent options also shook up corners of the Internet with their undeniably clean executions. Casual and savvy enthusiasts alike have been checking in with nearby skate stores for the simple concoctions. Shop all three pairs on eBay right now to round out your SB collection.

While the Low-top counterpart received a bulk of the public attention as well as the focus from collaborative endeavors, the High is as equally significant to the Dunk identity. 2020 showed no shortage of the Nike Dunk High in that that conceptual range as we saw the return of classic originals while seeing some bold interpretations from today’s most cutting edge fashion designers and artful creators. Alongside the return of the “Iowa” colorway in yellow and black was a wildly ambitious creation by AMBUSH, which infused elements of Japan’s motorbike and car tuning culture, and another by Italy’s Slam Jam that focused on the black-and-white dichotomy. Whether you stay loyal to classics or want to make a statement with your Dunks, eBay is the one destination that fulfills all needs.
