History of the Nike Dunk
Did you know the the Nike Dunk was originally intended to be the premier shoe for college basketball?
The OG Nike Dunk was introduced in August of 1985, the same year that the Air Jordan 1 took the world by storm. The Nike Dunk was first released as a high-top basketball sneaker, and drew design cues from the Jordan 1, Air Force 1, and Nike Terminator.
As mentioned, it was first advertised as a college basketball shoe. Nike's first attempt at marketing the Nike Dunk lead to the "Be True to your School" campaign. As such, most of the early colorways match up with some of the storied college basketball programs such as Michigan, Syracuse, and Kentucky.
Fast forward to now, the Nike Dunk (High and Low) still feature some of those classic colorways. Even still, Nike has continued to play around and innovate to create some other hot colorways.
