STEP BACK INTO 1985. Celebrate 1985 with an updated version of the Dunk High, recrafted to reflect the first 1985 Dunk—and amplified by a cloud-like graphic that adds an expressive touch reminiscent of '80s-style tie-dye. Its design through both the upper and tooling have been modified to match the shape, look and feel of the original to create streamlined appeal while still bringing you the familiar comfort of the classic. Homage to '85 To pay tribute to the 1985 original, we recreated the shape, look and feel of the original with modifications to the upper and sole. The padded, high-top collar bring you old-school appeal that's rooted in comfort. Retro Appeal A cloud-like graphic draws inspiration from the tie-dye style ever present in the '80s. More Benefits Leather in the upper with overlays provides structure, texture, and durability. Rubber outsole with classic hoops pivot circle adds traction and heritage style. Product Details Pull tab at heel Perforations over toe Nike Dunk From backboards to skateboards, the influence of the Nike Dunk is undeniable. Although introduced as a basketball shoe in 1985, its flat and grippy soles were perfect for a neglected sports community—skaters. Uncovering a subculture craving creativity as much as function, Dunk released decades of countless colorways that continue to capture the soul of skaters from coast to coast.
