Nike Teases The Return Of The Wu-Tang Dunk High

Here’s a headline that I never thought i’d write: the Wu-Tang Dunk is releasing to the public.

Originally releasing in 1999, this mythical sneaker — a collaboration with the Wu-Tang Clan — featuring the original yellow/black “Iowa” aka” Goldenrod” colorway of the Dunk High with the Wu-Tang logo stamped into the heel. It is generally accepted that 36 pairs made their way to the public, dropping exclusively at Training Camp, a sneaker boutique in New York City known for its notable clientile. However, close to 100 pairs were produced with half going to the Wu-Tang Clan and the other half staying with Nike.

In the world of high-profile, high-dollar sneakers exchanging hands cq3988-002 and cq3988-002 again, the Wu-Tang Dunk Highs are in that rarified group as pairs have been listed for up to $50,000. During the Dunk’s uprise in the early 2020s, Travis Scott was able to secure a pair and showed them off on social media, adding even more appeal to the younger generation and increasing demand around the Dunk.

On June 30th, 2024, Nike Sportwear’s official instagram account in collaboration with the official Wu-Tang Clan instagram account posted a short clip of the Wu-Tang Dunk covered by a swarm of bees. While there’s no other context provided, it’s clear that Nike and the rap collective is strongly hinting at a release.

No other information regarding a re-release has surfaced, but stay tuned for updates as we learn more.
