The Nike Dunk is an important point, not only in sneaker culture, but also in fashion in general. Despite the shoe having such a rich culture, the Dunk has a difficult history.
As the second most popular shoe to debut in 1985, after the Air Jordan 1, the Dunk was never planned as a flagship model. Designed for NCAA athletes and their fans, the Dunk was an attempt to capitalize on America's collage leagues.
This was not the case as they quickly gained a life of their own, active in various subcultures. From this, the shoe has come in and out of the trends of the public.
Since 2020, everything has changed. Not only has the fashion world seen the shoe, thanks to the help of Off-White and Travis Scott collaborations, but the sister shoe, the SB Dunk has also become a hypebeast must-have.
