The Atlas Nike SB Dunk High Lost At Sea is just one of the extremely hyped sneakers Nike has been pushing out recently. It appears Nike SB has a never ending supply of ideas on collaborations that have kept fans hooked.

Before we go into details for the Atlas x Nike SB Dunk High Lost At Sea. Let me walk you through some background!

Nike SB Dunk High

From Grailed

Before the Nike SB division was ever a thing, skaters looked towards the Air Jordan 1 and the Dunk Low. Released back in 1985, the Nike Dunk Low was an ideal sneaker for skaters. It had all the things skaters needed including being low cost relative to the high quality it offered.

The Nike Dunk Low had great ankle support for maneuverability and traction to stick better to skateboards. They also included 3M reflective panels which was a highly useful feature for skaters.

When Nike recognized the potential of this “Skater” market, they went all in. In March of 2002, Nike established the SB division led by the late Sandy Bodecker.

What Nike added was a boost air unit to the soles and nylon on the tongues. They also added a few other tweaks to fit skaters better.

The SB Dunk is still considered a catalyst for sneaker collection due to having highly limited releases while also having exciting collaborations that are concept driven.

The Atlas Nike SB Dunk High Lost At Sea is one example of how Nike used effective storytelling and limited distribution to make the SB Dunk a cultural icon.

In May of 2007, Atlas was opened up as a skateboard shop in the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded by Mike Manidis who is now the co-owner of Atlas, the company was founded with the motive of passion instead of profits.

Ever since conception, it was grown and developed by friends and family, delivering it to new heights. Atlas started off as selling skateboards but as they grew, they’ve started selling other apparel and clothing.

Today, Atlas has made it big, scoring collaborations with sports-wear giants such as Nike. Since conception, they’ve mustered a large cult following of loyal fans that carry on the skate culture.

Their latest creation, the Atlas Nike SB Dunk High Lost At Sea is massively anticipated by sneaker-heads and collectors alike.

To estimate its resale value, let’s head on over to StockX. By assessing similar sneakers, we may get a good idea of what to expect.

Nike SB Dunk High Sail Team Crimson

From StockX

Retail Price: $110

Peak Resell: $320

Release Date: 06/01/2020

Colorway: Sail/Bright Crimson

The Nike SB Dunk High Sail Bright Crimson released just a few months back and sold out instantly. It features a white tumbled leather upper and suede sail overlay.

A Bright crimson “Swoosh”, collar lining, and out-sole provides contrast. Matching sail laces, a white toe box, and white mid-sole finishes off the design.

On StockX, the average selling price is $190 which is an average gross profit of $80. Had you sold these at peak resale prices, gross profits would have been as high as $210 per pair.

Since the Atlas Nike SB Dunk High Lost At Sea is an anticipated collaboration, I believe they’ll resell for much higher prices.

Atlas Nike SB Dunk Low 3MM Black

From StockX

Retail Price: $130

Peak Resell: $250

Release Date: 06/26/2016

Colorway: Black

The Atlas Nike SB Dunk Low 3MM Black features a special box that’s also a collector’s item. The sneaker itself features black tumbled leather with smoother black overlay.

Black laces, “Swoosh”, and the toe box blend in while the white logo on the heel tabs and collar lining provide the only noticeable contrast. A charcoal sole finishes off the design.

On StockX, the average selling price is $180 which is a gross profit of $50. At peak resale, gross profits are over $120.

Atlas Nike SB Dunk Low 3MM Grey

From StockX

Retail Price: $110

Peak Resell: $750

Release Date: 07/08/2015

Colorway: Wolf Grey/Black-Challenge Red

This sneaker features a grey leather upper with black covering the side panels, heel, and toe box. It also includes charcoal laces, grey “Swoosh” and mid-sole. A translucent blue out-sole finishes off the design.

On StockX, average gross profits are around $210 per pair which is pretty decent. At peak resale prices, gross profits are as high as $640 and it appears to be rising.

I believe the Atlas Nike SB Dunk High Lost At Sea will have very similar resale value.

Retail Price: TBC

Estimated Resell: $400

Release Date: September/26/2020

Colorway: White/Blue-Yellow

Although having collaborated with Atlas before, Nike continues to show love to Skateboard shops through its Nike SB division. Similar to the Civilist and Strangelove collaborations, these are also expected to be highly sought after on reseller markets.

The Atlas Nike SB Dunk High Lost At Sea features a white leather upper with blue overlay. A blue tongue with “Atlas” and “Nike SB” branding can be spotted while a yellowed out-sole is featured that matches the yellow laces.

A blue heel, Nike “Swoosh” and out-sole finishes off the design. This design furthers the shoe’s narrative:

it’s inspired by the Hansa Carrier, a cargo ship that, on the way from Korea to the US in 1990, ran into storms in the Alaska Peninsula and lost 21 40-foot cargo containers — five of which contained 61,000 Nike shoes that began washing up on Pacific North-western beaches six months later.

Resale Value

This is after all, a Nike SB Dunk and a collaboration with a coveted skateboard shop. Thus I believe the Atlas Nike SB Dunk High Lost At Sea will definitely rack in some good profits for investors.

If you’re selling on StockX, to get your money back with an estimated retail price of $120. You’ll need to sell for at least $140. Thus by using my estimated resell value of $400, you can expect pretty high profits of around $220 per pair.

On StockX, the highest bids are already over $700 making profits of up of $580 possible.

Where to Buy

You can buy the Atlas x Nike SB Dunk High at select retailers and Atlas.com on September 26th. They’ll also be available at skate shops on October 2nd.

You can also buy them today at reseller websites such as StockX.
