In order to celebrate the Dunk in its truest form, With Air Max 270, Nike brought back the original cut and silhouette from 1985 with the help of UNDERCOVER and their UBA collaboration earlier this summer. What followed was a series of Acid Wash styles that spoke to the vivid fashion sense of the times, one that is remembered for its novelty than for its revolution.
