The Nike Dunk High was initially designed as a high-top basketball shoe. Introduced in 1985, the Nike Dunk High was made for performance on the court with a leather upper, comfy padded collar, and tongue. After it became the must-have sneaker on the courts, the Nike Dunk High, similar to the Nike Dunk Low, became popular amongst skateboarders, who appreciated the shoe's high-top design and cushioned sole. With the rise of the Nike Dunk in skateboarding culture, it was no surprise that in 2002 Nike introduced the Nike SB line, dedicated to core skateboarding with reinforced elements and a softer tongue. In the following years, Nike began to work closely with artists, musicians, retailers, and pop-cultural icons to create unique and limited-edition versions of the Nike Dunk High. The Nike Dunk High is a classic and stylish sneaker for men and Nike Dunks for women. Today, the Dunk High remains a highly coveted sneaker, which includes classic two-tone colorways like retro versions of the original "Be True To Your School" collection and high-fashion iterations or bold statement designs. If you want a timeless Nike sneaker, the Nike Dunk High is the way to go!
