the importance of the nike dunk

Sometimes in the sneaker game we get caught up in the fashion aspect of the shoes rather than the stories behind their importance and design, which are the things that make them truly great. I said something similar to this in a recent post, but I have a printed ally on the subject with substantially more sports knowledge: Bret Dougherty

I ran across an article of his in a web search where he talks about the sporting origins of the Nike Dunk and really brings home the point about wel-designed shoes succeding in performanance and aesthetics.
