Since its arrival in 1985, the Nike Dunk has transcended its intended venue, the hardwood, and courted a legion of fans in the worlds of art, style, and skateboarding. Thirty years later, the Dunk retains its iconic stature. But as it approaches a milestone anniversary, the quintessential hoops silhouette has been refreshed and remodeled.
As an update, the Dunk CMFT PRM AS is built on a much sleeker last than originally used, reducing bulk from the Dunk’s toe-box to create a honed, more aggressive stance and slimmer overall profile. For comfort, Zoom Air is featured in the heel and a Phylon midsole is employed to reduce weight. A constellation of the collection’s three-dimensional star studs adorn the toe box and ankle, while New York City’s telephone area codes appear tonally against the black upper on the quarter panels. A glossy black Swoosh finishes the look.
