Nike Dunk High 1985 Review

The Nike Dunk High 1985 is the brand’s attempt to give this silhouette the same premium treatment they gave to the Air Jordan 1. While Nike did improve upon other releases of the shoe, they didn’t quite get to that AJ 1 High 85 level. There are also minor differences between these and the original one released in 1985. However, we’re happy that they’re at least attempting these things. It really brings memories for some and new learning for others about the brand and shoe’s history.
