It’s no secret that the Nike SB Dunk Low is enjoying a renaissance period of sorts thanks to the Swoosh rebooting its SB division and placing more of an emphasis on limited and special edition Dunk Low collaborations over the past 18 months. While this has been much to the liking of Nike SB heads the world over (Travis Scott included), giving them a slew of new colorways to choose from, it’s also had an effect on some of the older models, according to StockX data.

Since summer 2018, several high-profile Nike SB collaborations from the Dunk Low’s heyday in the early to mid-’00s have dramatically increased in value on resell platforms such as StockX. Some examples include the 2004’s Nike SB Dunk Low “Cali,” the Dunk Low “Homer,” the “Raygun” Nike SB Dunk Low, and the Stussy x Nike SB Dunk Low from 2005.

Each of the models (and many others) have seen a spike in price in the last twelve to 18 months. The Stussy x Nike SB Dunk Low “Cherry” was available for between $270 and $350 last summer, while the lowest sale price in the past six months amounts to $620, with prices reaching $1,000 in September 2019.

Similarly the “Homer” Nike SB Dunk Low sells for between $400 and $1,000, whereas last year it was valued at no more than $370 and available for as low as $250. Another high-profile collaboration, the “White Cement” Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Lows, were reselling for between $975 and $1,300 last summer, while you’d be hard-pressed to find a pair for below $1,700 currently. The same upwards trajectory can be seen with the “Black Cement” colorway, as well as the “Red Cement” 10th anniversary version from 2012.  The numbers speak for themselves.

While most limited-edition sneakers see their price rise over time as the supply of unworn pairs decreases, the dramatic increases in value above can most assuredly be attributed to Nike’s push to make its Dunk Low relevant again. Without the relaunch of the Nike SB category and some of the more hyped contemporary collaborations, demand for older pairs doesn’t skyrocket and drive the value up the way it has. With incoming collaborations alongside OFF-WHITE and even other designers on the Nike Payroll, price tags of the throwback SB Dunks are likely to increase even further.

If you were looking to invest in Nike SB Dunks, you may want to look at some of the older pairs and keep an eye on any further increases. There’s no way of telling whether prices will continue to increase but with the Dunk Low’s 20th anniversary coming up in 2022, it’s safe to assume Nike has something special up its sleeve.
