Nike Dunk Trainers were released originally in 1985 with the Peter Moore designed "Be True To Your School" colours from twelve different schools for the upper design. The collection was an unprecedented release for the 80s, as it was an era defined by simple, white sneakers until Nike Dunks came along. Despite their extreme popularity now, the silhouette was quickly irrelevant with basketballers after the original release, relegating Dunks to the sales rack. However, it later became the shoe of choice for skateboarders and, with reimagining over decades, became the in-demand retro item it is today. The popularity of low top trainers originally came from the fact that they were bargain-priced and suitable for skaters' needs, as they did not inhibit ankle movement on the skateboard.
Since the new market opened up to the range, the Dunk silhouette has been relaunched repeatedly and established a new legacy, culminating with the 2018 rerelease. They now rival the classic Jordan's popularity and sit as a dominator in the sneaker market. With collaborations including Travis Scott, Virgil Abloh, and even Ben & Jerry's to its credit, it's unlikely the style will be going anywhere soon.
