The Best Nike and Nike SB Dunks of 2021 (So Far)
The Best Nike and Nike SB Dunks of 2021 (So Far) is presented by eBay.
The year is not even halfway through and some phenomenal colourways of the Nike Dunk and its SB sibling have already hit the streets. Some exemplars in 2021 have pushed the design into new frontiers with unexpected material and colour combos, while others picked new Pantones for clean two-tone finishes. After carefully considering metrics like collaborative heat, sell-out status, and historical significance, these are the best Dunks that have dropped so far in 2021. Missed the original drop dates? Shop them with confidence today on eBay.
AMBUSH x Nike Dunk High ‘Deep Royal’
Yoon Ahn of AMBUSH has created some of the most outlandish Dunks in recent memory. Going beyond just a simple palette swap, the team at Beaverton granted Ahn carte blanche to weld on massive rubberised Swooshes, AMBUSH branded heel counter spoilers, and a modified cut. While ‘Bred’ may be an all-time classic Nike scheme, this AMBUSH Dunk zigs when others are zagging, and crowns a ‘Deep Royal’ colourway. Worship and pay piety for this cool colab on eBay’s electronic kingdom.
Nike SB Dunk Low ‘What The P-Rod’
Paul Rodriguez is an all-time great in the skateboarding world, and his signature sneakers with Nike SB have delivered one of the longest-running skate lines ever. This year, P-Rod pulled off one of his biggest tricks yet by fusing key elements from 16 different releases he’s had a hand in to create the SB Dunk Low ‘What the P-Rod’. As skateable as they are collectable, what sneakerheads choose to do with these chimeric kicks is up to them after the package from eBay shows up at the door.
Nike Dunk Low ‘Photon Dust’
Sometimes the simplest Dunks are the best Dunks. The ‘Photon Dust’ isn’t the first time grey and white has been used on the popular model, but it’s always a welcome sight, and it’s the perfect time to pick up a fresh pair. This Dunk has universal appeal thanks to its easy-wearing colourway – classic two-tone colour-blocking that channels the OG Be True To Your School releases. Skip the lines and scoop them from a trusted marketplace like eBay.
Fragment Design x Nike Dunk High ‘Beijing’
The continued return of the Nike Dunk in 2021 means some old favourites have reappeared in the fold. One example is this collaboration with Hiroshi Fujiwara’s Fragment Design, on this ‘Beijing’ edition that first released back in 2010. However, it’s not just a one-for-one remake: the bold black and purple colourway is arranged symmetrically across both feet, and the midsoles now sport some cryptic text that only HF and top-clearance staff at Nike can decipher. Pick up a pair on eBay and try to crack the code.
Stingwater x Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Magic Mushroom’
Formerly filling his time and notepad with Dunk sketches during meetings as a sales rep for the big Swoosh, things went full circle when Daniel Kim returned to the brand with his own Stingwater skate label and propagated the ‘Magic Mushroom’ SB Dunk. And he certainly exercised full creative license by including Safari print, mini jewel Swooshes, iced-out midsoles, and a stash pocket to an all-red colourway. The best place to pick the ‘Magic Mushroom’ is eBay.
Nike Dunk High ‘Syracuse’
The Dunk craze was prefaced in early 2020 with the ‘Syracuse’ colourway reappearing on a low-cut version. A year later, the high-top OG triumphantly returned to new and old generations of excited sneakerheads. With its zesty citrus ‘Syracuse Orange’ accents representing the eponymous basketball team per the aforementioned Be True To Your School Series back in 1985, relive that sneaker history in 2021. There’s a strong crop of ‘Syracuse’ on eBay – now’s the time for harvest!
Carpet Company x Nike SB Dunk High
The tearaway sneaker trend is no better expressed than on the Carpet Company x Nike SB Dunk High. Sneakerheads handy with the griptape are rewarded with a peekaboo colourway that only reveals itself when its surface is shredded with some well-placed kickflips and ollies. However, the blue, white and gum yellow combination is just as pretty when rocked in untorn form. This Carpet Company won’t be found in most phonebooks, but it’s definitely on eBay.
