I recently got back to the East Coast from L.A., and let me tell you, the underground shoe world out West is like nothing I have ever seen. There are many stores that specialize in selling rare and expensive shoes, such as Flight Club, and Riff, both on Fairfax. While I was busy trying to process the amount of sneakers, and their price tags, my good friend Simon pointed out one of the most desired shoes for collectors. The Wu Tang Clan Nike Dunk High, originally released in 1999, is perhaps one of the rarest and highest valued Dunks of all time. The Dunk was created by Nike as a promo piece only for members, friends and family of the Wu Tang Clan, and the shoe was limited to under 72 pairs (36 Chambers X 2). 10 years later, this color way of the Dunk High still commands over $5000, and I’ve seen them online for nearly $7000. While the colors are simply yellow and black, the Wu-Tang logo is embroidered into the heel and the tongue tag so that everyone will know these are legit Wu. Not that anyone would ever see them anyway, for over $5000 these puppies would sit in my closet, in a air tight chamber, until my first born was ready for college. At that point I would be able to sell these things for a Ivy League tuition with a few bucks to spare.
