SB Dunks are still the pinnacle of sneaker culture, perhaps now more than ever. It seems like every day there’s a new SB Dunk release that dominates the market, or an older model setting record resale highs. There isn’t one specific source to credit for the Dunk resurgence. Rather, it is the culmination of multiple independent factors.
Earlier this year, StockX dug deep into the numbers and history of the Nike SB Dunk and offered a clear measure of its recent renaissance. They discovered that SB Dunk prices saw unprecedented growth over the first six months of the year, and that influencers like Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott have had a major impact on the market value of older SB releases. The numbers they reveal are astonishing, and make it clear that 2020 really is the “Year of the Dunk”.
