Nike Dunk History

The journey of the Dunk started off in 1985 with the release of Nike Dunk High, introduced as a basketball sneaker. The design of the shoe was heavily inspired by the Air Force 1, with an adittion of Terminator silhouette and Legend inspired moulds. The model was extremly popular with basketball players, until Air Jordan took over the realm. Designed by Peter Moore, this classic silhouette also won over the hearts of skateboarders all over the world, making them extremely popular during the 90s and 00s. Sneaker’s unique yet classic silhouette became even more popular when Nike decided to collaborate with Stussy, Supreme, Futura, Levi’s and more which later continued with one of the most popular collaborations to date. Nike teamed up with Virgil Abloh’s Off-White, who turned the silhouette into the style staple. Also, Dunk saw numerous iterations by rapper Travis Scott, who designed styles which sold out almost immediatly, making the shoe an extremly popular lifestyle pick.


Nike Dunk Low Design

When it comes to design, Nike Dunk Low features clean lines with cool finishing touches. The idea for the silhouette was drawn from the Air Force 1 style, mixing it with Air Jordan 1 and Terminator. The Nike Dunk’s predecessors helped form the silhouette’s final shape. Smooth leather upper is combined with overlays that wrap around the toe and heel, lateral sides feature the signature Swoosh branding and toungue tag and heel tab feature Nike branding. Nike’s design team had two goals when making this legendary silhouette: make them extra durable and extremly comfortable for everyday wear. In terms of colourways, the choices are endless, from the classic ‘Panda’, to ‘Valerian Blue’, ‘Rose Whisper’, ‘University Blue’, ‘Team Red’, ‘Championship Purple’ and more.


Nike Dunk Low ‘Black Panda’ Design

After many popular colourways, Nike decided to update the classic Panda style with some minor touches.The Nike Dunk Low ‘Black Panda’ are designed with a leather construction, with overlays around the forefoot, tongue and across the heel. The panels are visible at the toe box and midfoot and collar area are deviated in a tumbled finish. Laces and Swoosh branding break the full black look that appears at the upper, with midsole coloured in classic white, sticking to the signature color-blocking this silhouette is known for. The upcoming design will surely be a popular choice for the lovers of monochromatic and all black looks. Like every other Dunk, the ‘Black Panda’ is set to become a true lifestyle shoe.
