Let’s put aside the fact that the Nike Dunk has had so much influence on basketball shoes that it continues to this day, but the influence we’re talking about here is even bigger than that. Some 15 years after its first release, in the early 2000s, we saw the Nike Dunk take on its SB form and give the modern version of the sneaker its key reference point. From the wild colors and textures, SB Dunks made people stand in long lines (even camp out) in front of the stores. Bookings, pulling ties, camping out in front of malls is something that speaks volumes for how important these sneakers are to many fans. This line, in its countless variants, is a real lure for collectors who are ready to shell out serious numbers to get their hands on the most popular models. Collaborations such as those with the brand Off-White or rapper Travis Scott are listed best, but Nike also launches its colors within the SB division that are not related to well-known names. DSCENE team prepared a list of the best releases to come this December. Read on to explore our picks:
Just in time for the cold weather, Nike introduces its fuzzy version of Dunks, the Terry Swoosh dunks. Nike continues to bring the unconventional looks to their Dunks, and make them even more attractive to its customers. The sneaker fuses pale pink hues on the overlays and underlays with the matching shoelaces, with a contrasting Swoosh sign dressed in a fuzzy material. Perfect for the upcoming holidays, the pair is now available to shop and you can cop yours at the selected retailers at the price of 120$.
Wmns Dunk Low Next Nature ‘White Mint’
If you are a lover of a simple silhouette and colorway, then This ‘White Mint’ dunks are the perfect fit for you.

Dressed in a simple two-tone leather construct, the core of the pair leans on its heritage. The grey uppers and black overlays merge with a relatively straightforward black and white sole unit, though for a change, the midsole is lightly peppered with Grind Rubber.
