Nike continues to dip into its extensive archive of iconic sneakers, this time pulling out the Dunk High. Originally designed as a basketball shoe in 1985, the Dunk High gets its modern day makeover with some assistance from the Los Angeles Lakers. The storied basketball team provides the perfect colorway inspiration for this latest release, the Nike Dunk High Lakers.
The shoe was designed to pay homage to the classic ’80s silhouette while also update it for a modern audience. The result is a comfortable, stylish sneaker that can be worn both casually and during athletic activities. Its upper of the is made from University Gold leather with matching mesh tongues, laces, and insole branding. Court Purple overlays, Swooshes, tongue branding, lining, insoles, and rubber outsole atop a White midsole finish off the design. If you’re looking to pick up a pair, refer to the details below

Dunk High Lakers: Resale Value
The chart above gives us a breakdown of the average sale price of the shoe by size, as well as the profits/losses generated associated with the sizes. As you can see from the chart, 86% of the sales resulted in a loss ( sizes 7.5-13 and 15) while 14% led to earnings under $20 ( sizes 6.5 and 14). The shoe hasn’t even officially released yet and none of the sales that have occurred are favorable, so what can we conclude?
It’s safe to say that the Nike Dunk High Lakers have a low resale value. This is supported by the data in the chart, which shows that the vast majority of sales generated losses. Furthermore, none of the sales that have occurred so far generate profits over $20, which suggests that there is little demand for this shoe. Now, there could be several reasons why the current returns are in the negative. Maybe those who are currently selling it now were able to acquire their inventory at a wholesale price, which means they can get away with selling it for 5% over the retail price. And they control the market value of the shoe, so I’ll encourage you not to try to resell it at the moment. This is again good news for buyers, with a bit of patience, you may get a pair for below retail.
Does the shoe have the potential to gain in significant value as time progresses? We’ll have to monitor its progress within the next 60 days to see. Stay tuned
