To capture the new market, Nike released the Nike Dunk – a sneaker specifically for college basketball teams sponsored by Nike. These first releases were all part of the “Be True To Your School” collection. Each basketball team will receive Dunk corresponding to their team’s color.
The original Nike Dunk design was heavily inspired by the sneakers of the time, mainly the Air Force 1. And the result was a stripped-down version of chunky soccer shoes. basket was born. However, unlike the Air Jordan 1 and Air Force 1 at that time, Nike Dunk was brought in more colorful colors with a variety of different colorways being released.
