The look was based on its "big brother" from 1982, the Air Force 1, and elements of the AJ1 and Terminator were also 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" programme, in which shoes and apparel were released to match the colours of the "major colleges". This way, every fan should be able to dress in matching Nike shoes and teamwear to show colour. By the way, before the Dunk got its name, it was supposed to be called College Colour High in reference to that! Be True To Your School was the big marketing headline that was seen in many print ads with the Dunk in the centre and started its triumphal procession.
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 was not 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 brought the OG colourways onto the market for the first time as a retro, followed in 1999 by the first collabo with the Wu-Tang colourway, for which an insane amount of money is paid today. Japan Exclusives and countless collabos followed.
Black and white always goes, which is probably what Nike thought for their latest Dunk. Classic colour blocking, black overlays on a white background, are reminiscent of Nike's famous "Be True To Your School" Dunks. The combination of full leather upper and subtle colourway has great daily driver potential
