1. Nike

Although it may seem obvious that Nike is one of the best places to buy Dunks, we'd argue there's so much more it has to offer than just being the manufacturer behind the sneakers.

For instance, it has its own launch page named SNKRS that highlights some of its most popular upcoming releases, including the best sneaker collabs as well as Dunks, to help you keep up-to-date with when the latest colorways drop.

If that wasn't enough, the company also has a free membership system which means you never have to pay for shipping. It also grants you access to exclusive products, including new Dunks, and some of the best sneaker deals going to save you even more cash.

In terms of its returns policy, you get 60 days (30 in the UK) in which to send back your Dunks if you're not completely satisfied with your purchase which, in our books, is more than enough time to feel comfortable with your purchase. Therefore, when it comes to buying some of the best Nike shoes around, Nike itself is the ultimate choice.

2. StockX

In our opinion, StockX is one of the best places to buy sneakers second-hand, therefore giving you a second chance to secure the Dunks you want if you find they've sold out once you get around to buying them.

The website essentially treats reselling sneakers like the stock market, providing you with information on any price fluctuations to help you figure out whether it's the right time to pick up the shoes you're after.

Moreover, the company authenticates every purchase made through the website to ensure what you're buying is the real deal to avoid wasting your money on counterfeit products.

All sales are final through StockX; however, the benefit of being a resale website is that, if you change your mind about a purchase, you can simply list your shoes back on the website for someone else to pick up instead.

Like StockX, GOAT is an online second-hand retail store where you can find almost any Dunk colorway imaginable.

The website is relatively simple to use which means finding Dunks is pretty straightforward. Once you've arrived at sneakers, you can then filter by most popular, recently released, and even by price, both low and high.

Once you've found the shoes you like, you can either buy them outright or submit your own bid with the price you're looking to pay. If accepted, GOAT will send the sneakers to you providing they pass its authentification process.

The company also has a returns policy that gives you three days to return your shoes for New In Box, New No Box, GOAT Clean purchases providing they return in the same condition as they were when shipped.

4. Stadium Goods

Stadium Goods is another marketplace for streetwear and sneakers where you can find both new and old Nike Dunks.

The website makes finding Dunks simple as all you have to do is hover over the Nike tab at the top of the page and you're presented with a range of different models which include Dunks under the Nike Lifestyle subsection. From there, you can filter things down even further as you can sort by price, shoe size, and even color.

If you change your mind about an order then don't worry, the company also gives up to seven days to ship back any item(s) you no longer want, provided they're unworn and returning in the same condition as they were sent out.

5. Kick Game

Most of the stores we've focused on so far are based in the US; however, Kick Game is unique as it's located in the UK and provides a wide selection of the latest Dunk drops.

From briefly browsing the website it would seem to filter down to its Dunk collection is incredibly straightforward as you only have to hover over the Sneakers tab to find the Dunk subsection.

Returns-wise, you have up to 14 days upon receiving your order to send your sneakers back, with the company offering refunds on shoes if they've been returned in their original condition.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When it comes to buying new Dunks, there are usually a ton of questions that pop up. Don't worry though because we've answered some of the most common queries right here.

When do new Nike Dunks get released?

New Dunks as well as retro remakes are still produced and sold by Nike pretty much all year round.

As mentioned, you can keep up-to-date with upcoming drops via Nike's SNKRS launch page. At RealKit though, we aim to update you on the latest release date news ahead of time to help you stay ahead of the curve.

Bear in mind that release dates are subject to change though as delays in the production process can sometimes lead to new Dunks getting delayed.

Can you still buy Nike Dunks after they've sold out?

Yes, you can still buy Nike Dunks after they've sold out, but it may be more difficult to find them in your desired size and colorway.

One way to secure Dunks after they've sold out is to wait until they're restocked at Nike. As touched on earlier, you can sign up for notifications to be informed when certain styles are available again.

Not all Dunks are restocked though, so the alternative option is to check out resale websites to pick up the sneakers you want second-hand. Most resale sites, including the ones featured in our list, have their own authentication processes to make sure the item(s) you're receiving isn't fake. This should give you a little extra peace of mind if you're unsure about buying second-hand.

You could always try your hand at your local sneaker store as well. Just because the shoes you want have sold out online doesn't mean they're not in stores. We'd advise calling ahead to check if the shoes are in stock to avoid wasting your time.

Should you buy Nike Dunks a size up?

Generally speaking, Nike Dunks fit true-to-size, meaning there's no need to size up when purchasing a pair.

That said, if you're looking for a little more space or you tend to wear thick socks with Dunks, then you may find going up half a size beneficial to maximize comfort.

If you're unsure of what size to get, then we'd recommend checking out our guide on measuring shoe size and comparing your measurements to Nike's handy size chart to help you figure out what size will fit you best.
