A slam dunk is one of the most enigmatic, challenging, and fulfilling shots in basketball. A player performs this by jumping in the air and with powerful grace drives the ball into the basket either with one or two hands. The term itself was coined by Mr. Chick Hearn who was one of the announcers of the famous franchisees, the Los Angeles Lakers. This shot that usually brings the house down is called by other terms such as jam, spike, and throw down. Its popularity is associated with the grace, balance, and gravity-defying techniques involved in the movement. In the eyes of the audience, peers, and critics, a slam dank is the player’s crown. It is this association and popularity that gave birth to the Nike dunks.
The Nike dunk is the ultimate pair of shoes for those who love the sporty look. It comes in various sizes, colors, and designs. Its sizes vary according to the age and nationality of the wearer. There are sizes of the Nike dunks fit for teenagers, young adults, and mature adults, and there are even sizes for women. Its sizes encompass any race: Asians have their own sizes and so do the Western men. Their colors and designs are so varied to accommodate the tastes of the sporty persons who are into movies, animation, art, music, graffiti, music, or the icons of basketball. Whatever the aesthetic leanings of the wearers are they are provided for by a pair of a Nike dunk shoes- from the minimalist to the Avant-garde.
The Nike dunks come in two cuts or styles. Some of them are in low cuts and some are in high cuts. Most women prefer to don the low cuts with their skirts and shoes. A pair of Nike dunk shoes in high cut is the usual choice of men especially when they conquer the hard court. The choice in the cut usually depends on the sex, height, and race of the wearer. The low cuts are preferred by women because they can be worn for casual attire purposes. These low cut Nike dunks give a sturdier, stronger, and smarter look. The high cuts on the other hand are very efficient when it comes to support and balance in the games, thus much more preferred by men because they play the game more than women.
Whatever the style, design, and sizes of a pair of Nike dunk shoes they are sure winners because of they are durable, worth the money spent on them, trendy, comfortable, and above all unique. Their durability is brought about by the excellent quality of material used in their production from the sole to the laces, and the quality assurance processes that are involved. They are worth the money because of the appreciation that one gets from friends because of the aesthetic value of the design and the feet protection. Nike dunks are unique in design and expression. There is always a pair that best suits the personality of the wearer. Furthermore, there are even shops that specialize in the customization of these shoes. They are so trendy without compromising the sporty look. In fact, they amplify the sport, intrinsically and extrinsically.
