Nike is ready to re-enter the 36 Chambers. More than two decades after first releasing the Wu-Tang “Killa Bees” Nike Dunk high-top sneakers, Wu-Tang fans are buzzing about a new collaboration between the sneaker giant and hip-hop group.

Nike has yet to officially announce the collaboration, but all signs point to a re-release. On Sunday, Nike shared what looks like a sneak peek of the Wu-Tang Clan collaboration, via the Nike Sportswear Instagram account.

The post, featuring black and yellow high-top Nike Dunks covered in bees, was shared on the Wu-Tang Clan’s social media accounts and has received over 1,000 comments and more than 70,000 likes.

The Wu-Tang x Nike Dunk High is expected to arrive sometime this fall, per Complex. The re-release would mark the 25th anniversary of the shoe.

Nike released just 36 pairs of the original Wu-Tang “Killa Bees” Nike Dunk High back in 1999. The original Wu-Tang Clan high-top Dunks are available on eBay for a whopping $45,000.

While fans await the re-release, the classic Nike Dunk Low are trending for the summer, and with Fourth of July weekend coming up, now’s a good time for fresh kicks. The Nike Dunk Low is available for $115 and the Nike Dunk High retails for $130. Shop bestsellers at Nike.com.
