Thanks to collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Ben & Jerry’s, and, of course, a handful of Off-White™ co-signs, 2020 has been a fruitful year for the Nike Dunk. But collaborations can only take you so far. The limited availability and subsequent resale prices often rule out everyone but the most ardent collectors. We think that the true success of the Nike Dunk silhouette rests on the under-the-radar releases. These silent heroes shoulder the burden without receiving any of the headlines or, luckily for all of us, the crazy price tags. The best bit? You can spend a fraction of the cash, skip the queues, and actually end up with a Nike Dunk that nobody else you know has.

With the help of Stadium Goods, we delved into the archives to pick out some of the underrated Dunks that definitely deserve your attention. From general releases to limited drops, and even one collaboration for good measure, this selection exemplifies the treasures that lie just below the surface.

Yet another colorway which was released in 2020, but feels like it's been around for decades. The Nike Dunk High "Team Crimson", also known as the "Phillies Blunts", takes inspiration from the Phillies Blunt cigar company's signature logo.

The Nike Dunk Low Pro "True Berry" dropped in early 2019, but the simple, impactful colorway has the DNA of a classic. Understated grey suede tops True Berry leather uppers while Obsidian accents round out the palette.

The "Samba" originally released in 2001 as a Japan-exclusive. Few things build hype like an unattainable country-exclusive. So, as part of a Nike initiative to re-up rare Co.JP releases from the early years, the Nike Dunk Low "Samba" re-released in 2020 to our great relief.

Nike Dunk High "Spectrum"

It might not look that way, but the Dunk High "Spectrum" was actually released this year. We love the pastel colorway not only because it looks great atop the gum sole, but also because it's taking us back to the iconic washed-out colorways of the 2000s.

Dropping in May 2020, the Nike x COMME des GARÇONS Dunk Low "Monogram Print" features the letters of COMME des GARÇONS placed randomly around the upper which is made of Nexkin material. The technical material is translucent and stretches to the wearer's foot over time. Waxed laces and a leather heel tab give this collaboration the luxury credentials we associate with COMME des GARÇONS.

Released in 2019, the reissue of the 2005 Nike SB Dunk "Tie-Dye Rayguns" is a tribute to the late Sandy Bodecker, the man responsible for popularizing Nike SB in the early 2000s.

This 2019 Nike Dunk High might look plain, but it's actually covered in a top layer of black paint which, over time, cracks off to reveal a red, yellow, and blue upper as well as an NBA logo to the footbed.
