About Nike Dunk
The Nike Dunk silhouette first saw the light of day in 1985. What was originally a basketball sneaker has become a streetwear icon, and now comes in Dunk Low, Dunk High and the lesser known Dunk Mid. Since 2002, the Nike Dunk has also been conquering the skateboarding world with its modified version of the Nike SB Dunk. Much of the current popularity of these sneakers is due to rapper Travis Scott, who brought the Dunk out of obscurity with his own collaboration on the silhouette in 2020. The collaboration with the popular ice cream maker was also a huge hit Ben & Jerry's. This gave rise to combinations of many colours and textures for a bold mopart of Nike SB Dunk Low Ben & Jerry's Chunky Dunky. Also worth mentioning are the collaborations with Off-White and Supreme, which are typical of their novel designs. They are the choice of both advocates of unusual colour combinations and lovers of minimalism and neutral tones.
About the brand
The Nike brand was founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports by University of Oregon coach Bill Bowerman and his student Phil Knight. They opened their first store in 1966 and interestingly enough, before they started making their own shoes, they were the exclusive importer of Onitsuka Tiger shoes, today's Asics.
Nike is often associated with the innovative use of new technologies (Air, Zoom, React...), and above all with timeless and stylish products. This is not the only reason why Nike is the world's largest manufacturer and seller of sneakers on the global market. Among their most popular products are the Air Force 1 and the Dunk, of which we have a lot of them on our e-shop. It's not only on these models that countless collaborations have been created that have absolutely dominated the streetwear world. As the most famous we can mention the Nike Dunk model. Released in 1985, the Dunk is still a legend of the city streets after 30 years and in its rich history, it has managed to win the hearts of members of many cultures, be it skateboarding, basketball, BMX and many others. Available in high, low or mid, there is a version to suit everyone. There are hundreds of colorways, from the original collage pack containing colorways like Michigan, UNLV, and Villanova, to the influx of new colors and variations in recent years. And if you're craving something really special, we've got some of the most famous collaborations for you, like the deconstructed visual collaborations with Off White and its founder, streetwear legend Virgil Abloh, or with arguably the most popular rapper of our time, Travis Scott and his label Cactus Jack.
Leather - there is no better material for shoes than leather. It keeps its shape and breathability. Mostly coated leather is used for sneakers, which is usually coated with a thin protective coating for extended life and easier maintenance of the material.
Rubber - thanks to its flexibility, it brings comfort when walking. Suitable for all weather conditions. Easy to maintain.
