The 80 Greatest Sneakers of the '80s

6. Nike Dunk

Year Released: 1986

The Nike Dunk was less significant for the technical aspects of its design than it was for its style. The Dunk brought team shoe exclusives to the masses, as they were produced for some of the best college programs in the country. Players still got exclusivity, of course, as some of them sported “Air Dunks” that were never made available at retail. And 15 years after they were initially introduced, the Dunk gained new life with a new generation as a skate shoe.
