Footwear News recently announced that the Nike Dunks silhouette is their ultimate choice for the 2020 ‘virtual’ shoe of the year. One of Nike’s even more prominent sneakers is the Nike Dunks that made its appearance in 1985. The sneaker has accumulated more than its share of past collaborations over the years with Jeff Staple, Da La Soul, Futura, and Tiffany Diamonds.
