Dreamt up by footwear designer Peter Moore and originally billed as the ‘College Color High’, the Nike Dunk touched down in 1985 and has been an iconic silhouette ever since. At the time college basketball surged in a wave of popularity, and Nike launched the ‘College Colors Program’, painting the Dunk in 12 palettes and encouraging fans to dress in the colours of their favourite college basketball team with its ‘Be True to Your School’ tagline. The Dunk has since transcended the sport to become a staple foot-piece within the skate scene. Its padded build, cushioning and pivot point traction outsole offered skaters the same level of comfort and protection as it did basketballers.
