Over the years Nike has released their fair share of red or pink Valentine's Day-themed sneakers. So, it's nice so see for 2011 they took a completely fresh approach with the Nike Dunk High 'Amor'. This Nike Dunk model for women features a Sail-colored canvas upper with intricately embroidered, love-inspired illustrations. The illustrations include lovebirds, hearts, roses, Cupids, and the word 'Amor' (Latin for love). Nike completed the Nike Dunk High 'Amor' with a red tongue tag and red insoles, which showcase lovebirds on the right, and 'Amor' on the left. The attention to detail and craftsmanship will surely impress. They look so nice that I suggest skipping the flowers this year, and picking up a pair these for the sneaker-loving sweetheart in your life.

Ever since Nike Dunk hype took over the sneaker world we have seen this iconic kick in almost every possible material, color and pattern available. Eventually, you would think Nike would run out of ideas and admit defeat. I doubt that will ever happen, especially when they keep coming up with fresh new designs. This time Nike brings us a women's model with a tonal patent leather upper and matching laces. Then they took this unique Nike Dunk Low creation a step further by adding a multi-colored "confetti" outsole. The vivid colors on the sole really sing, and bring this design to a whole new colorful level. They are currently available in Anthracite and Vivid Pink. If you're looking for a cute and colorful addition to your footwear options, this Nike Dunk Low won't disappoint you.

It sports a vivid Argon Blue colorway with white accents and gold contrast stitching. The upper is made up of nylon and suede, plus Nike also added a canvas swoosh and a lightly speckled gum sole to the design.

So, be on the lookout for the "Tecate", "Marvin the Martian", and "Chrome Ball Incident"-inspired models coming soon.

Neil Blender is no stranger to designing skate shoes, so it should come as no surprise that he was asked to put together two Nike SB Dunks. Both the Urban Haze/Black High, of which was seen as an early release earlier this week. While this Nike Dunk High skateboard shoe was inspired by the Airwalk Enigma, this skateboard shoe rely on clean color blocking, nice material selection inspired by Neil Blender's Chrome Ball Incident blog. This low Skateboard shoe features black leather is used on the quarter panel, toe box and ankle, while Medium Grey suede finishes off the construction of the upper. Emerald suede is used for Swoosh and the same hue can be seen on the outsole, liner and midsole stitching.

At Nike SB's highest of highs, the most popular colorways were signatures – Danny Supa, Dan Shimizu, Reese Forbes, and so on. Nike has went back to that winning formula. As one of the newest members of the Nike SB team Eric Koston left Thailand at 9 months old, so his roots were the inspiration for this Nike Dunk High SB colorway. The Nike SB Dunk High Eric Koston "Thai Temple" skateboard shoe is poised to steer this Nike Dunk High in the right direction, with a great colorway set off by Metallic gold leather which is used for the toe box and quarter panel. This skateboard shoe leather glistens in direct light similar, showing a gold flake design, while the silver Swoosh uses the same trick. Gold suede is used on the toe, mid-foot and foxing. The ankle area is also gold, but it uses a cross-thatched pattern. Finally, touches of red can be found outlining the Swoosh and at the top of the tongue.

The latest Nike WMNS Dunk High Premium edition shoes goes with a head-turning look during a time of subtle trends.

These specific Nike Women's Dunk High premium edition shoes gets some extra oomph from silver threads woven into the ballistic nylon upper, which help to emphasize a metallic silver Swoosh on the side panel. A perfect summer look for all lovers of pink.

The unstoppable Nike Dunk High Skinny Supreme Women's retro basketball Shoe is back in a streamlined design, made just for the lady sneakerheads out there. It's been a couple of years since patchwork plaid shorts were a must-have item. Back in the mid 2000's, Nike wasn't releasing quite as many patchwork colorways overall, and this particular model had yet to be envisioned. But in 2010, just enough time has passed to make this look fashionable again, and to apply it to the recently-reduced Nike Women's Skinny Dunk High Supreme. The patchwork design, although it may not always be liked, definitely catches people's attention. This pair of Nike Dunk High Skinny Supreme retro basketball shoes have been dubbed "The Patchworks" because the design is feature along the entire upper. The use of vibrant colors also helps draw us in, while white accents, including the Nike swoosh and midsole, tend to blend in with the white seen in the design.

The gingham Nike Dunk High lifestyle shoe is back. Continuing with the wave of Nikes featuring this picnic tablecloth-like material, this Nike Dunk High has recently been made available. Dark army denim is in place on the toe, toe box, mid-foot and heel foxing, providing a dark base for the upper. However, to fit in with their lineup of other Nike Dunk High lifestyle shoes using brighter hues for the warmer Spring months, Nike countered the white/blue gingham pattern used on a previous version with a white/mint checker pattern and threw in accents of orange blaze on the leather Nike Swoosh, nylon tongue, and mesh inner lining.

Nike borrowed the alias, Black Mamba, from one of its headlining athletes, Kobe Bryant, and used it as inspiration for a two-sneaker package. The pack exhibits two retro style basketball shoes Big Nike High and Auto Flight High. The base-black Big Nike High is splattered with blood stains and thereby congruent with any Tarantino film. As for the Auto Flight High, it utilizes the red and yellow color scheme that is consistent with the DVD packaging as well as the jumpsuit that Uma Thurman dons during the film. Nike cites Kobe "Black Mamba" Bryant as their connection to Kill Bill with clever insoles. The insoles of each shoe display a "Death List" in the hand-scribbled styling of Uma Thurman.

We knew Nike would create a collection of Valentine's Day-inspired shoes for 2010 as it has for years passed. In fact, we've already taken a look at some of them, including a lilac Nike Aerofit High and a red/white Nike Air Force 1 low. Now you can officially add the Big Nike high LE to the collection. Nike decided to primarily dress this retro basketball shoe in the secondary Valentine's Day color. The Big Nike High LE (Valentine's Day) is mostly done up in a pink leather as opposed to a mainly red sneaker we usually see to honor Valentine's Day. However, this retro basketball shoe still features a lot of red accents such as midsole, shoelaces, tongue border and inner lining. Nike also incorporated a written 'love' message on the nylon tongue; maybe some of you guys can use this message instead of buying a card this year. There is no question that Valentine's Day is behind this release.

Nikes latest sportswear release is apart of Nike's Urban Best Collection. This retro basketball shoe wild design is not uncommon to the Nike Dunk although this could be the boldest yet. The Nike Dunk High Supreme Black/Black-Sail features a nylon/leather upper and a unrecognizable pattern. This Nike Dunk High Supreme retro basketball shoes makeup consist of a light nylon upper in black with an interesting print on other panels that is a mix of Italian marble and camouflage in orange, white, and black. The signature Nike swoosh is kept incognito letting the pattern speak for the shoes. The design on the upper actually has an uncanny resemblance to the Zubaz pants that became popular in the 80s. The black upper is elegant but with this wild design covering some parts of the sneaker, the Nike Dunk High - Black/Sail/Orange is actually given a wild look which is expected to appeal to those who are tired of their plain, old-looking sneakers. Paired with a black midsole and a gum outsole, these exclusive kicks thread the fine balance of clandestine and flashy.

In mourning the untimely death of DJ AM sneaker heads and vinyl enthusiasts worldwide can pay proper tribute with the Nike Dunk High Premium DJ AM.

Red leather fills in the rest of the sneaker, while a white midsole and black outsole are also used. DJ AM ACDC-inspired logo completes the look on the tongue tag and gives credit where credit is due. The pattern used for the dots along the heel come from the tool that gave DJ AM his fame–the Technics 1200 turntable. The perforated circles are stacked four tall, with one being far larger than the others. The black patent leather then represents the shiny vinyls spinning on top.
