The Nike Dunk Low is a sneaker that needs no introduction. It’s a classic basketball shoe that has been updated and modernized over the years, but it still retains the same DNA that made it so popular in the first place. First released in 1985, the Dunk has been brought back time and time again in different colorways and variations. The latest iteration of the sneaker, the Nike Dunk Low “Argon,” is a nod to the past while still feeling fresh and new. Let’s take a closer look at this sneaker and what makes it so special.
The Dunk Low “Argon” is a clean and simple sneaker that features a Deep Blue leather base with Light Blue overlays and White leather Swooshes and heel tabs. White laces, tongue labels, and midsole atop a Light Blue rubber outsole completes the design.
What makes this sneaker so special is the attention to detail that Nike has paid in creating it. Every element of the sneaker, from the colorway to the materials used, is carefully chosen to create a cohesive and timeless look. It’s also clear that Nike has put a lot of thought into how they can keep the Dunk silhouette fresh and relevant for today’s market, releasing older models that always resonated with the consumer. The Argon was actually released in 2001 originally as part of Nike’s CO.JP series, so the brand’s marketing genius came into play again.
The end result is a sneaker that feels both nostalgic and new at the same time. It’s a perfect example of how Nike can take an iconic sneaker and continue to find ways to keep it alive for new generations of sneakerheads. If you’re interested in going back in time, then refer to the details below for a chance to purchase a pair.

Dunk Low Argon: Resale Value
The chart above gives us a breakdown of the average sale price of the shoe by size, as well as the earnings/losses associated with each. 82% of the sales resulted in losses ( that is sizes 4-11). The remaining 18% led to profit margins under $15 ( sizes 11.5-13). The shoe is currently being for retail or under on about 65% of the listings. How can we explain that? This is another certain case of the shoe being made available in the Nike Employee store. Sellers are probably paying between $65 and $78 for the shoes ( tax not included). So they can get away with selling it for retail or under on third party marketplaces. So should you resell it?
It all depends on timing, there is definitely a high demand for it. But don’t expect any immediate gratification, you’ll have to wait till all the pairs available in the employee store are sold to see a change in the market. When will that happen? I’ll say wait till an average of 1,000 to 2,000 pairs are sold and then check the market value again. For the Saturday morning resellers, this isn’t good news. But for those with capital to spare, I’ll strongly encourage buying multiple pairs, especially on larger sizes. I’ll monitor the changes periodically, stay tuned for updates.
