Nike Dunk 2023 Releases

Nike will continue to mine classic Dunk makeups this year with retros of existing colorways, restocks of recent favorites, and a few new versions of the iconic 1980s basketball sneaker, per internal brand documents viewed by Complex. On the way are a handful of Fall 2023 pairs that stick to the “Be True to Your School’’ styling of the originals that feature leather uppers and two-toned colorblocking.

The Nike Dunk Low “St. John’s” (style code CU1727-100) in white and red will return after having been last released as part of a wave of coveted retros in 2020. This year’s release will retail for $110 vs. $100 for the 2020 pair. The “St. John’s” Nike Dunk Low will be available in men’s sizes from 3.5 to 15.

The “Panda” Nike Dunk Low (DD1391-100) will be back again this year at a retail price of $110, as will the similar white/black Dunk High (DD1399-105) at $125. Both will be available in sizes from men’s 6 to 15.

Among the new colorways planned for the OG-style Dunks are a white/velvet brown High (DV0829-100) at $125 and a white/clear jade Low (DV0833-101) at $110. Both will be available in sizes from men’s 6 to 15. Images of these pairs have not leaked yet, and the ones shown here are mockups.

The pairs described here are marked as July 2023 release in the Nike document viewed by Complex, but could arrive later due to supply chain issues and the shifting nature of sneaker release dates.
