Ever since Nike's reintroduction of the Dunk in 1998, it has continued to lead the footwear scene, one swoosh at a time. And for good reason; produced in a variety of catchy color ways, unique materials, and trendy themes, the idea of the Dunk has expanded far beyond it's original basketball affiliation. Now popular with trendsetters and the fashionable alike, Nike is consistently cooking up fresh ideas for today's Sneakerhead. The premium GTX edition is no exception. GTX, or more commonly Gore-Tex, is a waterproof, yet breathable material developed by Robert Gore. Designed with good intentions of shielding you from the elements, Gore-Tex is also implicated in surgery as implant material, patches, or membranes, as necessary in plastic surgery and heart surgery; so you know it's created to withstand abuse. Although originally utilized in tents and jackets, this weather-friendly material found it's way to the Nike factory and onto a fresh pair of high tops. Done right in a black and royal-blue color scheme, synonymous of a rainy day. Pair it with your favorite Gore-Tex jacket and make a splash in style; and remember... Keep it classic!
