Thirty years after they burst fully formed from the mind of Tinker Hatfield, Nike’s Dunks have bled beyond professional basketball to become street style icons and the go-to sneakers for many skateboarders. But, like another American giant, the Dunks must pivot to stay relevant. So, Nike has released the Dunk Lux High, with the company’s latest sole technology, a sleeker shape and more luxurious materials. Our pick is the monochrome white, with acres of ivory perforated leather that would surely be hell to keep clean, except that in these kicks, you’ll be floating a few inches above the sidewalk.

The latest Dunks are incredibly fresh and superlatively clean.
