The Nike Dunk was first released in 1985 as a basketball shoe. It was designed as a lower-priced alternative to the Jordan brand, which was also owned by Nike at the time. The Dunk quickly gained popularity among college basketball teams, who used them for their team shoes.
The popularity of the Dunk increasing since the late 90s, but it has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years, particularly among sneaker enthusiasts and fashion fans. Since then, Nike has been releasing Dunk in different styles, colorways, and collaborations.
Nike announced it would release its latest edition in 2022. The brand, which started its shoe specifically for college students, now got the position of one of the best silhouette rules in the market. People desperately wait for Nike to announce its new collection. The stock gained so much hype and got out of stock within a short period after being officially released. People were obsessed with buying, even in the resale marketplace. The bidding crossed over a thousand dollars for a single pair of dunks.
