The Nike Dunk debuted in 1985 as a basketball shoe aimed at college athletes. Despite its age, it still retains its vibes to this day. Today, the Nike Dunk is still considered one of the most influential sneakers of all time. Additionally, the Nike Dunk is considered a relatively cheap and easy-to-buy shoe. It’s also had some interesting collaborations with other brands at pretty high prices before that, but it’s not in the prime position it’s been in 2020 and 2021.
To celebrate the Dunk line in the most authentic way possible, Nike teamed up with UBA and UNDERCOVER to create an “Acid Wash” version of the original 1985 design in early summer. Not only was Acid Wash a version of the lively fashion of the day, it was one that was remembered for being novel rather than revolutionary.
While the “Acid Wash” version of the Dunk High has been popular, Nike is still planning a new colorway of the style. And recently the Nike Dunk High 1985 “Acid Wash” debuted in a very eye-catching orange-blue hue. Let’s explore these special sneakers with Storepc.
The blue and orange mix on the outsole and the classic yellow leather lining are the details that help this new version achieve the nostalgic look it wants. The most prominent feature of this 1985 Dunk High design is the beveled collar that causes the heel to stick out.
While we can appreciate the shoe’s original shape, we can’t deny that it looks rather odd compared to the Dunk’s decade-old silhouette. Sneakers are obsessed with these sneakers.
The Dunk High “Acid Wash” version is expected to be released by the end of 2021 and will retail for $130.
