The Nike Dunk Trainers were released originally in 1985. They were initially designed by Peter Moore as a “Be True To Your School” line which took the colours of twelve different schools for the design of the uppers. This was a rare and unprecedented release for the 80s, an era defined by simple, white sneaker ranges... Until the Dunk shifted things.
But despite being extremely popular now, the silhouette quickly became irrelevant after its original release, with the trends revolving around other Jordan styles, relegating Dunks to the sales rack. That is until it became the shoe of choice for skateboarders and decades later became an in-demand retro item. The model has evolved over the decades since, and nowadays, the trainer has been relaunched multiple times and established a legacy that Dunk failed to inspire previously. The range has surged in favour since 2018, rivalling even the classic Jordan’s popularity. As a result, it’s now a market dominator with various looks and colourways. Since the 2018 relaunch, collaborations quickly began, including Travis Scott, Virgil Abloh, and even Ben & Jerrys injected an ice cream range into the collection.
