New Nike Dunks from Virgil Abloh

The rumors said Virgil Abloh was dropping all of 50 Nike Dunks in 2021. “The 10” became “The 20” and now “The 50”.

Dunk has had a massive revival and the shoes that used to cost around 120 dollars have fetched four times that price with resellers on Stock X and other sites.

Virgil Abloh, the American designer, trained architect, entrepreneur and DJ who’s been the artistic director at Louis Vuitton’s  men’s wear collection since 2017 and chief executive officer of the Milan-based label Off-White, a fashion house he founded in 2012 I not new to Nike collabs.  He has had great success with several models of the Jordans, Dunks, Air Force 1s and several others – many of the models sells for over 2000 dollars on the net.

When someone put a mockup of the new shoes on Instagram,  Abloh’s commented that he had never been able to come up with that many horrible colors even if he tried. Now the rumors say that the shoes will be designed in white and grey but with 50 different color laces., but that model no 50 would be all black.

The shoes will also have serial numbers and details in the same color as the laces. Off-White Dunks can be bought from resellers on Stock X for between 820 to 1.400 dollars. If you want a slightly less expensive model Off-White Dunk, go for Abloh’s Rubber Dunk for 460 dollars.

The release date for the Dunks is not yet known, but fall might be the most likely time.
