Nike Dunk Low

The Nike Dunk Low is the low-profile version of Nike’s ubiquitous Dunk silhouette designed by Peter Moore. The Dunk is currently a strong contender in the realm of casual lifestyle footwear, and has had its moments in sneaker culture dating back to 1999.

Its humble beginnings date all the way back to 1985; it was fashioned to the likeness of twelve universities known for their NCAA D1 basketball programs. Colleges included that of the University of Michigan, UNLV, St. John’s, University of Kentucky, Syracuse, Villanova, among others, all of which had their team colors translated onto the silhouette for an iconic collection dubbed the “Be True To Your School” Pack.

Several years down the road, a new lane was carved out for it to reign over the sneaker market. First was a set of Japan-exclusive releases in 1999, known as the “City Attack” Pack; these were titled with a “co.jp” designation, short for “concept Japan”. Later, Nike presented the Dunk as a skate shoe with a fat tongue. After several failed attempts to bring it to mass market, Nike finally launched Nike SB in 2002, with the Dunk as its heritage centerpiece.

Under the Nike SB umbrella, striking collaborations with the likes of Jeff Staple, London’s Slam City Skates, Stussy, and Nick Tershay’s Diamond Supply Co., catapulted the Dunk into an phase of off-the-richter-scale popularity. This era lasted from 2002-2005; by 2006, the Dunk had reached near-mainstream and the model became a bit oversaturated on the market. This began the “down” years for the Dunk until 2017 and beyond when Travis Scott and Kyrie Irving started rocking older Nike SB Dunks.

Fast forward to present day, the Dunk Low has once again captured the hearts of sneakerheads across the globe. While Nike SB Dunks get the limelight with the collaborations, the standard Dunk Low has been a go-to model for Nike as its been offered in a variety of colorways.

The Panda Dunks are arguably the most ubiquitous shoe on the market, and with Nike restocking Panda Dunks every few weeks, it continues to spread.

The revival of the Nike Dunk Low not only brings collaborative efforts to the forefront, but heavily incentivizes Nike to keep a steady stream of new colorways coming out. Below you’ll find the latest on every manner of Nike Dunk Low on either end and in between, including release dates, official photos and purchase links.
