Nike Dunk 6.0 SE Delorean Collectible Sneakers

Updated on March 14, 2011

If you don't know what the Delorean is, kindly leave

The Delorean DMC-12 was a stainless steel car that was made from 1981 until 1983. It was from the mind of John Z. DeLorean, who also played a hand in making the Pontiac GTO back in the mid-1960's along with many other iconic vehicles. Delorean produced the DMC-12 on his own without support from other American or British car companies, and his company went bankrupt a few years into production. Delorean was caught in an FBI sting involving the importation of drugs, but it was a clear case of entrapment and he was never convicted.

In late 2010, Nike decided to honor this iconic car with a very limited edition shoe. The Nike Dunk 6.0 SE Delorean is that shoe. It's silver and black not to pay homage to the Raiders of Oakland, but because that's what colors the Delorean was. The silver is the stainless steel (none of the original DMC-12's were factory painted) and the black is the trim.

If you are a shoe collector, you probably already know the importance of keeping the box. If these shoes are still valuable 25 years from now, it's going to be the ones with the original boxes that command the most money. In some cases, the box will probably be worth more than the shoe. The Dunk 6.0 SE Delorean sneakers come with a special box that also features some of that trademark stainless steel look.

My favorite part about these shoes is the little details. Everyone will notice the "DMC" embossed on the back of the shoe, but will they notice the Belfast stamp on the tongue? All Deloreans were made at a factory in Belfast. Best of all is the bottom of these sneakers. It's orange, red, and white, which Delorean owners and fans will recognize as the colors of the big taillights on the back of the car. 

These Nike sneakers, which are limited to a production of just 1,000, are well constructed but they are really too nice to wear. I would suspect that 90% of the people who are lucky enough to get their hands on these shoes are either Delorean owners who will buy anything associated with their car or sneaker collectors, who pay big money for the latest and greatest limited edition sneakers. I have a friend who literally has hundreds of sneakers he's never worn and never will wear.
