18. Nike Sportswear x Alife Rivington Club Dunk Hi
YEAR OF RELEASE: 2009
• Although it is known for rainbow-colored Wu-Tang hoodies, Alife kept this recent collab subtle. The brand design crew utilized the .44 sticky rubber gum sole that's used in Nike's ACG line so Rivington St. solicitors wouldn't be caught slippin' in wet conditions.
