January 06, 2021 - Since its inception in 1985, the Nike Dunk has united successive generations in defiant spirit. Whether symbolic of a basketball team, art movement or metal band, the opportunity for self-expression rooted in collective cultural identity has defined the model. In 2021, the Dunk's legacy continues with new colorways and, undoubtedly, new adventures.

The first three arrive in January for the Dunk Low — black/white, red/grey and sail/coast — and will bring new perspective to the Dunk's iconic color-blocking. The black/white comes in men, women and kid's sizes; red/grey in men and kid's sizes; sail/coast will be available exclusively in women's sizing. Release begins January 4 in Greater China, followed by a January 14 launch throughout Asia-Pacific and Latin America. In Europe, the red/grey and sail/coast colorways release January 14. The black/white will follow a week later, on January 21. The North America launch continues in spring 2021.

Additionally, the Dunk Low black/hyper cobalt releases February 11 in men and kid's sizes, alongside the sail/orange peel in women and kid's sizes. The Dunk High white/orange blaze comes March 5 in men, women and kid's sizes.

The spring 2021 Nike Dunks will be available globally via the Nike AppSNKRS and at select retailers.
