Virgil Abloh dropped his collaborative Dunk Low pack with Nike last week and, ahead of the December 20 release, participated in a group chat with the likes of Fraser Cooke, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Carri Munden and Nick Diamond, organized courtesy of The Face.
The group chatted about the cultural and stylistic significance of the silhouette over the years, having originally been released in 1985 and coming under the Nike SB division at Beaverton when it launched in the early ’00s.
Highlights of the conversation include Hiroshi Fujiwara revealing when and where he bought his first Nike Dunks, Nick Diamond talking about skating in Nike Air Jordan 1s and picking them up on sale for $25, and Virgil Abloh revealing that the flat sole was perfect for skating. Fujiwara also revealed that when he worked for Nike in the ’90s he wanted to reissue the Dunk but no one knew what the Dunk was.
