Nike Dunks have been around since 1985. They released as a high-top basketball sneaker. “Be true to your school’’ was Nike’s first marketing campaign for the Nike Dunks. It offered college basketball teams a way to wear their own colour way of Dunks.Skateboarders started to love the Nike Dunk because they were cheap and also good for skating. Basketball shoe turned skateboarding staple. But it all really started in the early 2000’s, when Sandy Bodecker became general manager of Nike SB. Nike SB means Nike Skateboarding. Nike updated the Nike Dunk silhouette together with the entire skate culture, so it was especially created for skaters. Often confused with the Nike dunk the Nike Dunk SB are two completely different designs. The upcoming SB Dunk Low “Dodgers” features the classic Dodger blue in suede above a white leather base, with minute touches of red hitting the tongue label and heel. The exposed stitched around the Swoosh act as a nod to the embroidery seen on MLB jerseys, while the gum sole — consistent with the MLB SB Dunk releases — feature a blotch of bubble gum pink on the right shoe.
