Dunks have always been a part of the sneaker scenario. They have been on and off trend and frankly, they are never going away. Any self-respecting collector or enthusiast should at least have a pair in his collection as they are definite classics.
Given that the demand for the said shoe is going crazier by the day, it always pays to be one step ahead of things and actually knows what releases are lined up. Call this a heads up of some sort, but here are the Nike Dunks you should be on the lookout for this H2 2021.
Nike Dunk “Acid Wash” Pack
A nod to the 80’s, this nifty vintage duo of Dunks feature a nice Acid Wash treatment that will make Bon Jovi proud. Note the nice curvy vintage shape that takes you back to the 80’s when the Dunks can be found practically for dirt cheap. Denim jacket optional, this is the Air Jordan’s filthy rocker brother.
Nike Dunk Fragment Dunk High Black / Navy
A bit reminiscent of the City Pack’s color blocking, this new Fragment Dunk by Hiroshi Fuhiwara boasts of a two tone makeup that’s very similar to the “Beijing” colorway.
Highlighting a deep shade of navy with a blacked out paneling with the Fragment lightning bolt, this may be your next best bet if you’re still sad on that Travis Scott L.
Nike Dunk “Seoul Korea”
Into K-Pop? K-Dramas? Immersed in Korean culture? Then this should be on your list! Featuring overlays of colors inspired by South Korea’s national flag, the Taegukgi, this one is definitely a nice pair to rock to tell the world of your K-obsession.
Nike Dunk “Goldenrod Low”
If you can’t get enough of Wu-Tang or Bumblebee or its Hightop counterpart, then this low cut version is for you. Definitely one of the best colorways to retro in years and easier to wear at that. You just can’t miss out on this two toned masterpiece. And yes, we are seeing crispy white midsoles!
Nike Dunk High “St. John”
Undeniably iconic, this staple from the 80’s are definitely must haves if you want to complete your Be True To Your School Pack or you just want a high top version of this nicely color blocked Nike Dunk.
Decked out in the St. John University colorway with some nice leather materials going on, this one is a no-brainer cop. With red and white, how can you go wrong?
Nike Dunk Low Undefeated “Triple Black”
Definitely a more withdrawn follow up next to the recently released Blue Snakeskins and the Brown Canteens, this one features more of a stealthy look that gives emphasis to material choices and details.
The triple black version also pays a nod to its AF-1 counterpart, definitely its chunkier brother.
Nike Dunk Low EMB X NBA “Chicago”
A celebratory Dunk that pays homage to the Chicago Bulls’ 75th season, this Nike Dunk is a must own regardless of how many Jordans or Dunks you have in the same colorway. The deal is that it’s got a diamond graphic laser-engraved into the silver lace deubré to make them extra special. Plus, the leather based on this photo looks like A-1 Steak Sauce!
Nike Dunk High “Cargo Khaki”
Making a triumphant return all the way from 2017, this classy Nike Dunk High is a banger. Capitalizing on the two-tone design, the high-top shoe boasts of a clean white base with the “Cargo Khaki” colorway. We’d prefer to call it olive green but if Nike says they’re Khaki then they’re Khaki.
Nike Dunk Low WMNS Graceful Pink
A refreshing deviation from the usual two-toned color affair, this Dunk Low for women features an interesting shade of muted grays pinks and whites that set it apart from its usually loud siblings. It’s all about the color blockings which make the Dunk interesting and this is one fine classy example.
Nike Dunk “Pinwheel”
Don’t let the otherwise all white colorway fool you. the details on this otherwise simple Nike Dunk can be found on the insoles with a Pinwheel graphic and a loud Neon Green color. Besides, you can never go wrong with all white Dunks, that’s how perfect this shoe is.
Nike Dunk X Off-White “Dear Summer” 03 of 50
This Off-White x Dunk Low “Dear Summer – 03 of 50” features a white leather upper with soft grey canvas overlays and Abloh’s signature plastic zip tie.
The ones that make this interesting are the shades of bright purple that match with the foam tongue and the grey tones of the shoe. Number 3 of 50, this one stands out in a very quirky punk rock way. Do remember that there are 50 pairs in this Off-White collection, so expect to see more variations of this collab.
Nike Dunk Low “Varsity Salmon”
A very colorful throw down on the Nike Dunk, this reminds us why we love the silhouette so much. For sure, it can stand alone with muted colorways and all, but it’s with these striking colors where the Nike Dunk truly shines. Loud, proud and youthful; definitely a must own.
Nike Dunk Low “Midas Gold”
Not a part of the 80’s Be True To Your School Pack, but this shoe just comes in strong with the same vibe and energy. Dubbed as the “Midas Gold” colorway, we can see Tony Stark rocking them with his armor in style. Just a clean and simple colorway, we say these are a go!
Nike Dunk Low “Shimmer”
Definitely not for everyone, but this particular Nike Dunk can make you standout in any party. If it so happens that the venue is not as fun as it should be, this particular Dunk might as well grab the spotlight! Dance costume not included!
Setting your sights on any of these Nike Dunks dropping this H2 2021? Brace yourself because Sneaker Raffles are not the way they used to be. Nonetheless, we still hope you all the best in copping any of these Nike Dunks that are set to release this H2 of 2021.
