Watch: Episode 1 of Nike’s ‘The Story of Dunk’ Documentary Series is Live!
The Story of Dunk dives headfirst into the sneaker’s debut on university hardwoods in 1985, telling the story of the famed ‘Be True to Your School’ releases, before moving onto the silhouette’s evolution on the concrete of the streets.
In this first episode, sneaker historian Scoop Jackson, Jeff Staple, Chris Gibbs, and others look back at the Dunk’s historic debut, and how it paved the way for a rapid rise.
Undoubtedly one of the most loved sneakers of all time, the Dunk has experienced a wild renaissance in 2020. The crew in Beaverton have been planting seeds for this comeback for years, but even they couldn’t have predicted the mind-blowing response which has ensued.
‘A six-part documentary tells the story of this cult classic through those who share the Dunk’s defiant spirit and make it their own, marking it out as a symbol of self-expression that binds the rebellious in us all,’ says Nike.
