The Nike Dunk silhouette, which debuted in 1985, was an instant hit among basketball players and fans. It is without question one of the most popular models of the ticked brand to date, appearing in countless colors and revisions since its release.
A little history
Released in 1985, the Nike Dunk High instantly won the hearts of basketball players, thanks to the designers' fusion of four of the best basketball shoes of the era, including the Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1 sneakers. However, the public didn't pay much attention to it until a few months later, when the Be True To Your School" collection was released, which used the colours of famous American universities such as the University of Kentucky and the University of Michigan for each model. But after that, the model's popularity went into decline in the '90s, which Nike tried to solve with an unexpected move...
The skateboard culture of the 1990s
Recognizing the fan disinterest and culture change that began in the early '90s, Nike took the model's story in a different direction and released the Nike SB Dunk, which was immediately picked up by skateboard culture. From then on, interest in the shoe was steady.
Dunk High, the perfect “big brother” for colder times
Unfortunately, as the weather gets colder, we have to say a tearful goodbye to the Dunk Low, but no worries, that’s when it’s the Nike Dunk High’s time to shine. The good quality upper is an excellent water repellent, the soft and comfortable high-top is really warm, therefore keeps your feet hot. So if any of the aforementioned activities take place in the winter, the Dunk High will be the perfect choice to combine your outfit with.
