Nike Dunk Reps was born in 1985, with the theme of the basketball idiom Dunk Replicas in Chinese: the meaning of slam Nike Dunk Low Reps. At first, it launched a college sneaker project with the National College Basketball League (NCAA), with the slogan "Be True To Your School" and joined hands with St. John, Georgetown, Michigan, Kentucky, University of Nevada, Syracuse, Arizona, Iowa and other universities, a total of eight schools launched the most advanced and trendy "basketball shoes" that year and became the most sought-after shoes in the 1980s.
Who is the father of Dunk SB? Looking back at the popularity of subculture in 2000, it first launched the "Dunk Replicas Pro B" with the skateboard brand Alphanumeric and has since entered the skateboard market. Based on "cheapness" and the wear resistance of Nike Dunk Reps leather and a lot of trendy colors, it has gradually become the favorite of skateboarders. NIKE also took advantage of this trend and created the "Dunk Reps Pro B" shoes especially for the skateboard market. The specially thickened tongue allows skateboarders to protect their ankles when performing stunts. After several models were launched, “Rep Nike Dunks Pro B” gradually disappeared due to the designer’s lack of knowledge about skateboards. Fortunately, NIKE does not seem to want to stop there! Looking at the hidden big picture of skateboarding, NIKE specially established "NIKE Skateboard", which is what we now call NIKE SB for short, and found Sandy Bodecker to lead the skateboarding branch line. Sandy Bodecker went deep into the skateboarding circle to absorb the technical practice needs of skateboarders and user feedback. He retained the thickened tongue of Rep Dunks Pro B and combined with NIKE's exclusive Zoom Air sole. Selling, created the current "Dunk SB" or called SB Dunk Reps. Sandy Bodecker was later honored as "Father of Dunk SB"
