On the tail end of Wu-Tang Clan’s prime run in the 90s, Nike re-released the original ‘Be True’ Dunk High collection. Along with the collection, Nike spun the Goldenrod colorway associated with the University of Iowa into a killer bee-themed, Wu-branded friends and family drop for the kids from Staten. That was the good news.
The bad news? The Wu-Tang Dunk was extremely limited. Some have estimated the run at 36 pairs, representing the group’s 36 chambers. It’s also been said that a very small run was sold at New York City sneaker shop Training Camp. Either way, it was nearly impossible to get your feet into a pair, and the odds have only dwindled throughout the years.
However, if you happen to wear a size 11.5 or just want a pair of the collection, here’s your chance. A deadstock pair just hit ebay for the first time in years courtesy of goalielou1. Bidding is already at $10,000, but you’re going to have to pay a premium for one of the most sought after and collectible sneakers of all-time. Happy bidding (or watching)!
