Nike SB saw its fortunes change in 2018 after years of being overlooked by buyers in search of hype. The SB Dunk resugrence partly stems from a handful of well done collaborations between the skateboarding division and the likes of past partners like designer Jeff Staple, streetwear brand Diamond Supply Co., and Massachusetts boutique Concepts. Now, more stars, athletes, and entertainers regularly pop up in pics sporting Dunks as if the clock were turned back by a decade. Seeing Nike SB in the conversation again is refreshing since the category is partly responsible for ushering the sneaker phenomenon to new heights in the 2000s. The revival of interest is also a fitting tribute to Sandy Bodecker, the longtime Nike employee who led SB to new heights, who passed away last fall.
With the renewed interest in mind, we searched for Nike SB options available now for prices that were either close to retail or reasonable prices on the resell market. The best deals to be had online were mostly via StockX, which also means lowest published prices fluctuate.
