Recent and Upcoming Dunks

We touched on this one before but I can’t not mention the Turdunken, a special collab with Concepts that had its release just in time for Thanksgiving. It may not seem like a lot but pegged at such a low retail like Dunks typically are, you’re still getting a $150 to $200 profit if the shoes sell into the high $200 or low $300 range. Consider that next time you’re considering buying the newest pair of Fear of God 1’s for $350 at retail.

The Varsity Purple Dunk got its official release just the other day, December 3rd. This shoe was a women’s color way so it only reaches about size 10.5 for men’s. Sorry big footers! Some unique features are the gold detailing on the Nike tongue tag and the premium satin collar lining. As we predicted, sales for the Variety Purples are in the $250 ballpark.

The AMBUSH x Nike Dunk High in Black/White will surely be a hot one on the resale market with an upcoming release of December 11th. Check out the blog linked for all the details!

The Looks

Whether you’re calling these the maize, black and yellow, Iowa, or Wu-Tang Dunks, they’re sure to turn heads. Before cementing its status as a streetwear icon and skateboarding staple, the Dunk began its journey on the college hardwood. The design made major waves in 1985 when it debuted in a pack of color-coordinated products for college programs. Now, a handful of those treasured team colors are back to commemorate the model’s 35th anniversary. This edition blends an upper of neutral black leather with overlays of varsity maize.

Conclusion and Resale Anticipation

Same old song and dance with a pair of Dunk Highs, and we’re certainly not complaining about it. So far in 2020 it’s been so easy to predict the resell trajectory for a general release Dunk like this. Awesome profit margins, usually over 100%. If you haven’t had any success on getting Dunks recently, I’m wishing you good luck this week and you’ll finally get a W!
