Sneaker Spotlight: Nike SB Dunk Low “What the Dunk”

Nike SB Dunk Low "What the Dunk"

Nike SB’s Dunk line has many classics with nicknames that can only be considered as creative when describing the range of sneakers. The Nike SB Dunk Low “What the Dunk” took a multiple choice test and selected E for “All of the Above.” Sneaker and toy boutiques along with skaters and special themes all come together for this crazy pair of kicks. Released during the Fall of 2007 to celebrate the pinnacle collection of Nike SB Dunks; the use of materials, colors, patches, stamps, and stitching may make you scratch your head, wondering to yourself which release came where. Supposedly limited to under 2,000, a limited release made sense with the multiple sources it referenced. Any popular classic you could remember in this combination is here, asking yourself what the dunk Nike was thinking when releasing these.

The list runs long from some of our favorite classics of years past. Nicknames like Avenger’s, Barfs, Bisons, Buck’s, Cali’s, Carhartt’s, Denim’s, Diamond’s, Hemp’s, Huf’s, Hunter’s, Jedi’s, Lucky’s, Medicom’s, Pigeon’s, Rayguns, Shanghai 1 and 2’s, two different Supreme His and Lows, Takashi 2’s, Tweeds, and Unlucky’s bring back classics that hold very little meaning to those that are not in the know. Topped off with insoles reading “What the Dunk”, this homage to the classic line is not just a chopped and screwed version of the Nike SB Dunk line, it’s in itself a classic of its own. The line has inspired other silhouettes to reach into their crazy collections to find inspirations from all the wild colors that make us remember why we bought these.
