Nike SB celebrates 15 years of the SB Dunk

How a basketball shoe became a skate icon

Posted by

The original Nike Dunk came to life in 1985, firstly hitting the hardwood floors of basketball courts before hitting the streets as a sneaker icon. Next skaters discovered the Dunk and it quickly became a go to. Nike noticed the skate communities affinity for the Dunk and decide to re-engineer and create a model especially for skaters. And thus the Nike SB Dunk was born in 2002 — making this year its 15th anniversary.

To mark 15 years of the SB Dunk the team at Nike put together a visual history of its inception which you can see above. It’s just one part of the celebrations taking place over the next month. Be sure to hit up the Nike SB Dunk anniversary hub to keep up.
