Nike Dunk Bacon Low AIOWho knew that food can be a dope inspiration for sneaker colorways? Previous collabs and releases certainly proved that. From Ben & Jerry’s to the Lobster Dunks, Nike certainly has an extensive lineup of yummy kicks. And now, the Swoosh is ready to drop the popular Dunk Low with the iconic Bacon colorway! But you see, the story doesn’t really start with the Nike Dunk Bacon. It starts almost 20 years EARLIER! So, let’s take a look at what all that’s about, and what you can expect from the Bacons.

History of Nike Dunks & the Bacon Colorway

Dunks Are the Best Canvas!

The Nike Dunk, originally released in 1985, was designed as a basketball shoe. However, it gained popularity in the skateboarding community due to its sturdy construction and excellent grip.

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the Dunk became an iconic sneaker! In fact, both athletes and streetwear enthusiasts loved to wear it. In the early 2000s, Nike introduced the SB Dunk line, which featured collaborations with skateboard brands and artists. That step cemented the brand’s status in sneaker culture.

Since the 2000s, the Dunk went through cycles of hype. But one thing stayed the same, and that’s the silhouette’s value for the serious sneakerheads ans skaters. It also had numerous collabs and releases, which made it a timeless classic in the sneaker industry. Now, combine Dunks with the iconic “Bacon” colorway, and you have a recipe for success and aftermarket profit!

It’s worth noting that when it comes to Nike colorways, few are as well-loved as the Bacon. And for all the right reasons if you ask us! The Bacon colorway first popped into the scene on the Air Max 90 in 2004. It was a collab with Dave’s Quality Meat (DQM) and it’s been sizzling ever since! Side note: DQM ain’t a butcher shop, it’s actually a sneaker store!

Now, just a few days ago, some sneaky sneaker spies leaked photos of the upcoming Nike Dunk Bacon Low. And let’s just say, it’s gonna be worth the cook!
