Nike Just Managed To Give Their Dunks An Impressive Upgrade
Like Air Force Ones, Nike Dunks are a staple of the Swoosh. They’re been tinkered with here and there—and, of course, released in a ton of different colorways—but, for the most part, the design of the sneaker hasn’t really been changed dramatically in years. The reason: The Dunk is one of the most beloved sneaks in the Nike collection. Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
Well, Nike is messing with their Dunk formula, albeit ever so slightly, with the new Nike Dunk High AC VT sneaker. So far, we’ve seen the bright orange colorway featured above as well as the obsidian/turquoise colorway that’s shown below. Basically, Nike has used its innovative Vac Technology to create both of the sneakers with the result being a fresh take on the classic Nike Dunk.
Is it a winner? Well, that’s yet to be seen. They’re only available through select Nike accounts right now, so we haven’t managed to sneak a peek at them yet, outside of seeing them in these photos. But they certainly look great and offer up several improvements on the Dunk. Put it this way: We’ve definitely got a pair of these on the short list of sneaks that we want to buy this season. Even if it means buying a few less Christmas gifts.
After all, ’tis better than to receive than give…Errr, or something like that. Whatever. Just give yourself a pair of these, please. You’ll be glad you did.
