Nike SB Dunk Low History 2002 LINE Today
Line Today

Great things are often products of inspiration from other things and collectively become what they’re known for.

Peter Moor, who also designed other popular Nike sneakers such as the Air Jordan 1 and the Terminator, took inspiration from those sneakers and came up with the Nike Dunk in 1985.

Initially, they only wanted the Dunk to be a basketball sneaker with no idea of an entirely new untapped market with a lot of potentials.

The realization came when they made too many of the Air Jordan 1s which started sitting on shelves collecting dust. Due to lack of demand, it saw various price cuts that attracted a different consumer base.

Skateboarders that wanted a low-cost sneaker with good traction and ankle support, saw the Air Jordan as the perfect sneaker and started to adopt it as their primary skateboarding shoes.

The Nike Dunk launched in 1985 with a more advanced design than its predecessors. It came at an ideal time and reinvigorated basketball culture for many. The SB Dunk, however, was officially released in 2002 and was directly inspired by it.

Nike’s SB Dunk Includes small changes that make them even more appealing to skateboarders such as Nylon tongues. Interestingly enough, SB Dunks also feature superior padding and cushioning even though both shoes retail for the same prices.

Today, the SB Dunk is considered to be more sought after than its regular Dunk counterpart, and for good reason.

Nike SB Dunk Success 2021
Via Straatosphere

In 2020, two sneakers rose to dominance and were one of the most sought after sneakers anywhere. The first is the regular Nike Dunk while the second is the more popular Nike SB Dunk.

Starting off 2020, Nike treated fans to a Strangelove SB Dunk Low for Valentine’s day which was quite the head-turner. However, Nike didn’t stop there and continued to deliver hit after hit Dunks and SB Dunks throughout the year.

Regular colorways were also very popular such as the SB Dunk Wheat Mocha. Meanwhile, collaborations such as the Nike SB x Grateful Dead sneakers dominated sneaker news headlines for months!

Then to finish the year off, Nike came out with another banger in the Frame Skate x Nike SB Dunk Low. Then there was the Sean Cliver x Nike SB Dunk Low which was the cherry on for a successful 2020.

It appears Nike is set to push even harder for better Dunk and SB Dunk releases as so many have already flooded the market in the first month of 2021.

To help us estimate resale for the Nike SB Dunk Low Court Purple, let’s head on over to StockX. Assessing similar sneakers can give us a good idea of what to expect.

Nike Dunk High SP Varsity Purple

Nike Dunk High SP Varsity Purple 1

Retail Price: $120

Peak Resell: $330

Release Date: 12/22/2020

Colorway: White/Varsity Purple

The Dunk High SP Varsity Purple released last month in women’s exclusive sizing. As expected, they sold out very quickly and are currently selling for consistently good profits.

This sneaker features smooth white leather underlays that appear on the toe boxes and side panels. Varsity Purple overlays are featured on the ‘Swoosh’, toes, eye stays, and rears. A white midsole and translucent outsole complete the look.

Average selling prices on StockX are currently at around $220 which is almost a $100 profit. They’ve also been sold for profits as high as $200 per pair. The Nike SB Dunk Low Court Purple will likely have an even higher resale value.

Nike SB Dunk Low ACG Terra

Nike SB Dunk Low ACG Terra 1

Retail Price: $100

Peak Resell: $550

Release Date: 07/31/2020


This SB Dunk ACG terra is inspired by the original colorway which released back in 1991.

Featuring a black-based upper, these sneakers are contrasted by purple overlays on the toe, eye stays, and rear. Bright golden laces provide contrast while an orange ‘Swoosh’ adds even more color.

A white speckled midsole and black outsole complete the look.

The average selling price on StockX is a decent $300 which is a $200 gross profit. Resellers have even sold them for as high as $550 per pair! The Nike Dunk Low Court Purple will likely have a similar resale value.

Nike SB Dunk Low J-Pack Chicago

Nike SB Dunk Low J Pack Chicago

Retail Price: $95

Peak Resell: $1,250

Release Date: 09/01/2020


Nike released the massively hyped Nike SB Dunk “Chicago” last year with a retail price of just $95.

The Chicago colorway features what you’d expect, red, white, and black color tones all in a premium leather construction. Black Swooshes, heel tab, and laces provide contrast. Meanwhile, white midsoles and black outsoles complete the look.

On StockX, the average selling price is currently at a very decent $550 which is a gross profit of over $450 per pair! These sneakers have even been sold for profits as high as $1,100 per pair! The Nike SB Dunk Low Court Purple probably won’t have profits as high but you can still expect some pretty good returns.

Retail Price: $100

Estimated Resell: $320

Release Date: January/23/2021

Colorway: Court Purple/Black-White

This SB Dunk Low comes in in a popular colorway that’s been seen a few times on the Air Jordan 1 silhouette.

These SB Dunks take a similar route in regard to color blocking by featuring black leather toes. Black leather overlays also appear on the eye stays, Swooshes, and heel tabs which feature black “Nike” embroidery.

A clean white leather is featured on the side panels and perforated toe boxes. Meanwhile, “Court Purple” appears on the quarter of the sneakers. White tongues feature “Nike SB” and “Dunk Low Pro” branding while insoles are shrowded in black with purple footbeds.

White midsoles are elevated by Nike Zoom cushioning and finally, court purple outsoles complete the look.

Estimated Resell Projection

Everyone probably already knows that these sneakers are going to sell out instantly. We’ve seen in the past with the SB Dunk “Chicago” that Air Jordan colorways usually translate really well into SB Dunk colorways.

Although profits for the Court Purple colorway likely won’t be as high, you can still expect some very decent profits. Using my estimated resell value of $300+, you can expect profits of around $200 per pair!
