Nike Dunk

The Nike Dunk is one of the brand’s most iconic silhouettes. Though it fell out of relevance briefly following the start of the 2010s, the silhouette has since returned to form, offering a number of quality Retros and covetable collaborations.

Designed by Peter Moore — the man behind the ever-prolific Air Jordan 1 — the Dunk first released in 1985, borrowing elements from three existing models. Before it went on to inhabit skate culture via Nike SB, the Dunk was significant within collegiate sports, where it dressed up in its “Be True To Your School” colors for both fans and athletes alike.

Today, the aforementioned pack is still referenced constantly, with Off-White the most recent third party to make use of the iconic palettes. Michigan, UNLV, Syracuse, Kentucky, and many other signature, two-toned colorways have come back around as of the past few years, and soon, we’re to see even more in 2021.

Looking back, this year was already eventful in what it had to offer. For Chinese New Year, the Dunk Low dressed up in not one but two different arrangements — the first paid tribute to firecrackers, while the “Street Hawker” honored the rich, cultural significance of the country’s bustling food scene. Next up, you can expect to find the Dunk Low “Medium Curry” as well as the somewhat complementary Dunk High “Dark Russet.”

The Dunk Low typically retails for $110 USD, the Dunk High retails for $120. Certain collaborations and premium makes, however, will likely sell for a small premium.
