If 2020 was the year of the Nike Dunk’s resurgence, consider 2021 the remix. Last year gave us all kinds of Dunks–some old, some new–of both the SB and OG variety, including the wacky “Chunky Dunky” as well as updated versions of assorted “Be True to Your School” varieties, not to mention long sought-after favorites like the “Plum” and “Brazil,” refreshed for a new generation of Dunk fans.

The first few weeks of 2020 have been relatively quiet on the Dunk landscape, but that all changes this week when three new flavors hit Nike’s SNKRS app (via SNKRS Draw) and other select retailers for the Dunk’s biggest stretch of 2021. Coming in hot are three colorways: a UCLA-inspired “Coast” colorway in women’s sizing, the OG UNLV-inspired “Medium Grey,” and the “Hyper Cobalt,” all in low-top iterations.

And this is just the beginning. Rumor has it that the famed “Michigan” Dunk, which released last year in its high-top form, will be returning later this year as a Low. In addition, a “Team Red” High, “All-Star” inspired High, “Medium Curry” Dunk, and the SB “Pink Pig” are all scheduled to hit retailers around the globe in the ensuing months.

Despite the uptick in Dunk releases over the last year, Nike appears to be doubling down on its iconic silhouette as head towards a new year of exciting drops. And when it’s working like this, who can blame them? This trio of Dunks sets the table for a week of incredible releases, including the return of some ’90s favorites as well as some classic Kobes.
