These special editions are finished in the band's emblematic colors, Black and Goldenrod, and feature the Wu-Tang logo on the heel and custom tongue label. It is said that only 36 pairs were made. As a testament to the pair's rarity, this is the only one Sotheby's has ever handled.
The Nike Dunk, designed in the 1980s and intended for basketball, was eventually repurposed for skateboarding. The popular model would be reworked in the early 2000s with upgrades for the skateboarding community, leading to the formal debut of the Nike SB brand. The man behind it, former Nike executive Sandy Bodecker, is credited with building one of Nike’s most beloved subdivisions with the Nike SB line.
