Not a lot of sneakers have made it for as long as the Nike Dunk has which is partly due to Nike’s story-telling ability as well as the creation of the Nike SB Dunk which elevated the sneaker’s status as a cultural icon.

To commemorate the Nike Dunk’s legacy, we’ve come up with this list of the most popular orange sneakers. So, without further adieu, let’s get right to it!

Starting the list off with this classic, the Nike Dunk High has also been a fan favorite and although they aren’t as popular as their low-top counterparts, some colorways were bound to make their way onto this list.

The Nike Dunk High Varsity Red Blazing Orange starts off with a white, orange, and red color scheme. We have seen similar colors before but these shine with their own light and are highly popular today.

Uppers feature Varsity Red overlays that appear on the toes, eye stays, and heel overlays. The perforated toe boxes are clean white while leading up to more white throats.

These throats are wrapped up in classic white laces and lead up to a pair of white tongues with orange “Nike” branding.

Side panels, on the other hand, feature orange leather that complements the heel underlays. White sock liners make their way down more white inserts, complementing the white leather side panels on each side.

Crisp white midsoles and matching Varsity Red outsoles finish off the design. If you want to cop similarly hyped sneakers when they drop, join the Winner’s Circle for valuable insider knowledge and more!

On the secondary market, these kicks are currently worth north of $300 and are quite difficult to get your hands on.

Nike celebrates the shortest day of the year by releasing this Dunk Low as the earth pivots its axis away from the sun.

The whole Nike Dunk Low Winter Solstice is covered with red, orange, and traces of salmon, with leather pale pink underlays on the toe boxes, side panels, as well as laces.

The toes and eye stays are covered in fuzzy orange suede, while the heel overlays are covered in a flaming red hue in a similar material. Sunshine-effect embroidery can be seen on the lateral Swooshes, scuff guards, and heels, while orange tongues sport yellow “Nike” branding.

“21 12 21 15:59” is written on the insoles, indicating the precise date and hour of the winter solstice, while crisp white midsoles and titular orange outsoles complete the look.

These sneakers are just one of the Nike Dunk Lows that are inspired by cultural events and holidays. There are also plenty of Nike Dunks and SB Dunks inspired by Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and many more.

On the secondary market, these kicks yield almost double the return. On StockX, you can find them for around $200, just as we estimated in our article before the release.

The Nike Dunk High Syracuse comes in a very similar design to the original that was dropped back in 1985 for Nike’s College colors program.

This was a campaign by the Swoosh to let certain Nike-affiliated schools represent their respective teams, one of those teams being Syracuse. For that team, Nike chose to use Syracuse’s signature hues and came up with this classic.

The entire sneakers come constructed with leather in a white and Blazing Orange hue. This hue appears on the leather toes, eye stays, heel overlays, and on the side Swooshes. Perforated white toe boxes lead up to matching white throats that are wrapped up in titular laces.

Moving up, you’ll find matching white tongues with white tags and orange “Nike” branding. Sock liners are also orange while side panels and collar underlays indulge in a clean white shade.

Furthermore, clean white midsoles and Blazing Orange outsoles finish off the design.

On the secondary market, these kicks are worth over $400 per pair! That’s over a $300 per pair gross profit.

  • Release Date: 2006

Keith Hufnagel established HUF, a Californian skate footwear and apparel company. The label is influenced by traditional American artistry, design, and functionality, and aims to merge skateboarding, streetwear, and shoe fashion.

Nike’s collaborations are second to none and these are definitely a testament to that. The color scheme is similar to the Nike Dunk Low Cider which is also a very popular Nike Dunk low.

Uppers feature a mix of suede and leather with cracks and patterns. Grey underlays with marks cover the side panels and the collar underlays while Blazing Orange leather appears on the toes, eye stays, and the perforated toe boxes with the addition of black crack patterns.

Heel overlays, on the other hand, feature charcoal faded suede material with embroidered pulse readings that appear on the seismograph, a tool that is used for measuring earthquakes as they occur.

Patterned dark midsoles and black outsoles finish off the design.

These kicks are extremely valuable on the secondary market and resell for an average price of over $600 per pair!

Possibly one of the most popular Nike Dunks period, the Nike Dunk Low Syracuse peaks our list of the top 5 orange Nike Dunks of all time.

Inspired by the originals from 1985, these Dunk Lows were released alongside the Kentucky variants and sold out instantly, possibly kicking off the Nike Dunk’s rapid resurgence in 2020.

Uppers feature white underlays on the side panels, perforated toe boxes, and on the heel underlays, while a bright orange hue covers the toes, eye stays, laces, heel overlays, and the side Swooshes.

Heel tabs with white Nike branding, complementing the branding on the tongues add another layer of detail. Meanwhile, white midsoles and titular outsoles finish off the design.

On the secondary market, these sneakers are reselling for around $700 thus finishing off our list with a bang!

You can find these on GOAT, Flight Club, and StockX. Be careful when ordering as there are rumors of fakes being shipped from these legit check companies.
