The designer was inspired by the aesthetics of skate culture and retro 80s basketball to create them. In the words of the own Tisci,

I think the Dunk have something very special. They are based in the sport, as well as the culture of street style. To younger generations, you can paste into any urban tribe of styles as different as you can imagine. I think it is one of the most iconic sneakers ever created by Nike.

Each of the versions presented proportions outsized, including broader Swoosh logo and the larger edging and the novelty ojales.Como, holes in the toe, in addition to incorporating RT and Nike Swoosh on the heel logos have been removed.
