Lot Details



Rubber, Leather Cotton


Originally released in 1985, Nike introduced the Nike Dunk as the premiere basketball sneaker in college basketball. The colorways for the series were based on successful programs around the nation. Kentucky, Michigan, UNLV, Syracuse, St. John’s , Villanova and Iowa all received their own signature shoe. The 1985 Nike ads featured the sneakers with a tagline ‘Be True to Your School’ giving fans an opportunity to support their team from head to toe. 

Over the last 37 years Nike Dunks have become one of the most iconic sneaker styles of all time and a blank canvas for design inspiration. Most notably, the style was adopted by the skateboarding community, which has led to some of the most coveted Nikes of all including the Nike Dunk High SB ‘FLOM’, the Nike Dunk Low SB ‘Paris’ and more. 

This lot features the original release of the 1985 Nike Dunk High ‘Kentucky’ from the ‘Be True to Your School’ pack.
