If you're looking to step up the ol' sneaker game in 2017, a safe place to start is with a classic athletic silhouette... say, the Nike Dunk, which is a bit more understated than the Air Jordan but no less recognizable.
Sneakerheads will have plenty to choose from in 2017, with all manner of wacky colorways and high-end collaborations in the works. Browse four of our favorites, below:
COMME des GARÇONS HOMME Plus x Nike Dunk High
The buzzy Japanese brand is bound to drive Nike fans mad with this black-and-white collaboration, which boast transparent PVC panels to give them a space-age look.
Nike SB Dunk High Black Box
Tricked out in faux ostrich leather and smooth suede, the only crazy things about these classy kicks are the neon purple laces. If you want to dial it down, feel free to swap out with black or white ones instead.
Nike SB "Olive" Dunk
These suede "olive" colored dunks will satisfy anyone looking to jump on the ever-popular militaristic sneaker trend without any camouflage pattern.
Nike SB "Reverse Shark" Dunk
These kicks are as eye-catching as everyone's favorite ocean predator, with aquatic teal suede tongues and finishings and bright red leather side panels and toeboxes. The eye-popping colorway calls to mind some sort of extreme Six Flags rollercoaster.
Look out for these bad boys in 2017.
