Guess what’s buzzing in the sneaker world? 🐝 Wu-Tang Clan and Nike have dropped a major hint about a possible new release, and fans are losing it.

  • On Sunday, June 30, Wu-Tang Clan and Nike shared a joint Instagram post featuring bees around a high-top shoe.
  • The black and yellow color scheme pointed to the classic ‘Wu-Tang’ Nike High Dunks, which debuted in 1999.
  • Originally, only 100 pairs of these iconic sneakers were released, adding to their legendary status.
  • Meanwhile, Wu-Tang’s single-copy album ‘Once Upon a Time in Shaolin’ is set to be exhibited in Australia.

On Sunday, June 30, both Wu-Tang Clan and Nike’s official Instagram accounts posted a photo showing bees swarming around a high-top shoe. The shoe’s partially covered Nike check and the unmistakable black and yellow tones left fans buzzing with excitement. Could this be the return of the fan-favorite ‘Wu-Tang’ Nike High Dunks?

According to Footwear News, the Instagram post is likely teasing the revival of the ‘Wu-Tang’ Nike High Dunks, which first appeared in 1999. These sneakers were a special edition, based on a University of Iowa colorway, but with Wu-Tang’s logo added to the tongue and heel to make them unique.

In the original release, only 100 pairs of these shoes were made available to the public. The rarity and unique design made these sneakers legendary. Some fans even started a rumor that only 36 pairs were made, a nod to Wu-Tang’s debut album, ‘Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).’

Meanwhile, there’s other exciting news for fans Down Under. The Wu-Tang Clan’s single-copy album, ‘Once Upon a Time in Shaolin,’ often called the ‘world’s rarest album,’ will soon be on display in Australia. The album was initially sold to Martin Shkreli for $2 million in 2015, but after his legal troubles, it changed hands again.

Now, the non-fungible token collectors of PleasrDAO have loaned the album to the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Hobart, Tasmania. From June 15–24, fans can listen to a 30-minute edit of the album at the exhibition ‘Namedropping.’ MONA’s director of curatorial affairs, Jarrod Rawlins, called it ‘more than just an album,’ highlighting its mystical and iconic nature.

With a possible sneaker revival and a rare album exhibition, Wu-Tang Clan keeps proving its lasting impact on pop culture.
