The hottest Nike Dunk sneakers you can buy for under $200

They may be hyped, but that doesn’t mean you can’t grab a pair at an affordable price.

After two or so years since the full-fledged revival of the Nike Dunk, the hype still shows no sign of slowing down. Even the most simple color schemes for the sneaker sell out immediately, which may lead you to believe getting a pair for yourself is hopeless.

Fortunately, there is indeed hope on the resale market that typically tends to be dispiriting. Despite no longer being available for retail, many Dunks of the High, Low, and SB variety can still be had for only nominally more than their original price. This includes versions that were originally hyped but ended up proving quite challenging to pull off.

GOAT

Using the resale platform GOAT, we’ve culled eight Dunks that can be had for $200 or less. Others can easily go for double that, but there are still many fine Dunks you can make yours without being fully gouged by this predatory market.

Concepts

Undefeated Dunk Low SP “Canteen” ($159)

GOAT

The resale price for the recently released Undefeated collab is bewilderingly low. The Dunk Low nods to one of Undefeated’s iconic Air Force 1s of yore, and those less steeped in sneaker history are seriously sleeping.

Undefeated

SB Dunk Low “ACG Celadon” ($195+)

GOAT

This in-house release from Nike SB is also a nod to another famed sneaker, the ACG Caldera released in 1993 and never re-issued. Nike’s two coolest divisions collide by utilizing one of the brand’s best color schemes.

Nike

Dunk Low SE “Free.99 White” ($158+)

GOAT

One of two Dunks from Nike’s “Free.99” pack, this white base with mismatched colors across the left and right shoe is a nod to the bodega practice of giving out free candy to children in the spring. At around only $50 more than retail, the kicks almost feel free, too.

GOAT

Dunk Low “Michigan” ($178+)

GOAT

The Dunk High was originally released as a basketball sneaker done up in the colors of several universities for a “Be True to Your School” campaign. Michigan’s blue and maze was among the OG lot, and it may look even better on the Dunk Low.

Nike

Dunk High “Syracuse” ($175+)

GOAT

More true to the OGs is the Dunk High “Syracuse,” released exactly as it first did in 1985. It’s a must-cop for any Orangeman, and a great pick for anyone else ready to embrace the color.

Nike

Paul Rodriguez SB Dunk High Premium “Boxing” ($200+)

P-Rod loves to do up his Dunks por la Raza, and for this one he also channeled his love for boxing, the sport he says he would’ve focused on had it not been for skateboarding. That’s one way to get a championship belt, and you can have one, too, as a lace dubrae on the low.

Nike

Concepts SB Dunk High Pro “TurDunken” ($208+)

GOAT

The price here comes in at $8 more than our cut-off, but you can excuse us for cheating for one of the most daring Dunks ever released. The sneaker boutique concepts went full send in its homage to the over-the-top Thanksgiving bird orgy espoused by John Madden.

Concepts

Bodega Dunk High “Legend” ($203+)

Just as bold and released in the same season as Concepts’ Dunk was Bodega’s, which pondered what the shoe would have looked like in prehistoric times. The resale price seems to have plummeted because people don’t know how to wear them, and consider that a challenge worth tackling yourself.
