The Nike Dunk hit the hardwood for the first time in 1985 and was designed with basketball performance in mind. The silhouette expanded on the success of the Air Force 1
by showcasing the design’s versatility with color combinations, especially for college programs. It returned to the market in 1998 as a casual sneaker and was eventually converted into a skater’s shoe with added padding for the Nike SB
line in 2002.
