After being co-opted by skaters in the 80s, the Swoosh did right by those early adopters in 2002 by reengineering the design specifically for skating. Nike added a fatter tongue to the mix, a Zoom Air bag in the heel, and quickly got co-signs from countless skaters. Couple that re-worked design with brand new colourways and colabs, and an instant classic was born – one beloved by skaters and 'heads alike.
Nearly two decades later, the Dunk seems poised to be bigger than ever. New Supreme Dunks are on the way, and Virgil Abloh is set to put his own unique spin on the shoe with a trio of releases before year's end.
With the Dunk once again hogging the spotlight, it's the perfect time to take a look back at some of our favourite SB Dunks from over the years.
Check out 10 of our picks below, and then stay tuned for part two – because we sure can't limit a best-of Dunk list to just 10 pairs.
