A young team around designer Peter Moore, who was already responsible for the Nike Air Jordan 1, created the Nike Dunk in 1985, the latest coup of the Nike basketball family. The look was based on the "big brother" from 1982, the Air Force 1. In addition, elements of the AJ1 and Terminator were found on the new silhouette. No wonder: the latter were launched by the same design team. In the same year, Nike launched its "College Colors" program, releasing shoes and apparel to match the colors of the "major colleges". This way, every fan should be able to dress in matching Nike shoes and teamwear to show color. By the way, before the Dunk got its name, it was going to be called College Color High in reference to that! Be True To Your School was the big marketing headline that was featured in many print ads regarding the Dunk and started its triumphant march. The success of the Dunk was impressive - on and off the court. As early as the late '80s, the Dunk made a brief appearance in Spike Lee's film "School Daze." But it wasn't until the late '90s that a new era began for the Dunk silhouette. The skateboarding boom of the '90s was at a peak and more and more skaters appreciated the features of the Dunk on the board: The midsole with low profile, the stability of the upper, good cushioning and especially the grippy sole made the Dunk not only perfect for the court, but also the ideal skate shoe. In 1998, Nike launched the OG colorways for the first time as a retro, followed in 1999 by the Wu-Tang colorway, the first collabo for which insane amounts of money are paid today. Japan Exclusives and countless collabos followed.
Attention Dunk fans, here comes the "Dark Russet" in the premium version! The full-suede upper is in different curry and earth tones. The tongue label and the midsole in white however set a nice contrast. The concept is rounded off by the cream-colored outsole. The "Dark Russet" definitely joins the line of strong Dunk releases that Nike has already given us this spring!
