Calling Nike SB’s Dunk collection eccentric is like saying a bear lives in the woods. Well, duh. As you’re about to find out, the looming Ben & Jerry’s x Nike SB Dunk Low “Chunky Dunky” is one of a handful of wonky designs crafted by Nike SB and friends. These are a few of our favorites of the most wild Dunks you'll ever see.
Inspired by everyone’s favorite snack when the craving hits, this Ben & Jerry’s x Nike SB Dunk Low “Chunky Dunky” has parallels to some of the greatest marijuana themed Dunks. We’ll just leave it at that.
A staple in college, bachelor, and skater-who-crashes-on-their-friends-couch life, there isn’t a more delectable meal in the morning, afternoon or evening than leftover pizza. The Nike SB Dunk Low “Cold Pizza” is an ingenious concept, featuring a "tin foil" exterior and a pizza graphic on the insoles.
Forgetting to pack the salami isn’t the worst part of a picnic, it's having ants crawling into your bag of chips and having their way with your watermelon. The only time we’ve been charmed by their presence is when they appeared on this Dunk.
Asparagus is a tasty vegetable. Though its aftereffects can be… alarming, there’s nothing weird about the Nike SB Dunk Low “Asparagus.” Chalk this one up as one of the most eccentric Nikes of the last ten years.
Whoever is responsible for some of these 4/20-inspired designs is 1) a genius and 2) absolutely blitzed out of their mind 24/7. How else could you describe the thought process with putting a poop stain on the bottom of the Nike SB Dunk High “Dogwalker?”
Listen, we’re not above doling out some unsolicited advice when it comes to food. The next time you're in the mood for chicken and waffles and you happen to find yourself in Harlem, head over to Amy Ruth’s and order the “Tommy Tomita.” Just trust us on this one. Oh, and the Nike SB Dunk High “Chicken and Waffles” is pretty great, too.
Minnesota is a hotbed for hockey, fishing, and since 2010, Nike SB Dunks. This design you see here is inspired by the official state bird of “The Gopher State,” the loon.
With an uplifting message woven into the design of patient Finnigan Mooney’s Doernbecher x Nike SB Dunk High, this shoe is evidence that not all Dunks are inspired by debauchery, bottom feeding sea creatures, and guitar cases.
We had to include the Concepts x Nike SB Dunk High “Ugly Christmas Sweater” for obvious reasons. This is the latest colorway of the series, which began in 2013 with the “Black” and “Grey” iterations, and is perhaps the most whimsical of the three designs.
We'll end with the granddaddy and grail of all Dunks that can be deemed "wild," the "What the" Nike SB Dunk Low. The elaborately mismatched sneaker colorway concept is now commonplace, but when these dropped (in extremely limited quantities, of course) in 2007, the community lost its collective mind.
