When you’re looking for a pair of sneakers that doesn’t look like something everyone else is wearing, you might turn to some retro designs by a company like Nike. As a matter of fact, the Nike Pink Dunk collection is one of the most interesting sneaker lines produced by the company. Some are more popular than others, but the entire line definitely makes a statement. Below are five of the best Pink Dunks that your money can buy.
5. Dunk Low “Pink Velvet” ($260.00)
It's easy to understand why so many people are interested in purchasing this particular shoe. Obviously, it's one that's high quality because it's made by Nike. You know that you're getting a product you can trust right off the bat and that goes a long way when it comes to Footwear (or anything else for that matter). Perhaps the more important thing here is that it's understated just enough that you can wear it with so many different things without it calling too much attention to itself. It's just stylish enough to make you feel like you're wearing something special, but it never even approaches the line associated with something that's ostentatious. It's also worth noting that it's pink in color, as you might have already guessed. It's not exactly easy to design a pink sneaker that doesn't stand out like a sore thumb. This one definitely does stand out, but in a good way. That's largely thanks to its pastel colors, featuring a combination of white and light pink leather. It almost looks like the color of a delicate rose. The other thing that makes it special is the pink Nike symbol on the side of the shoe. Couple this design with simple white laces and you've got something that's truly timeless.
4. Women’s Dunk Low ($1,120.00)
If you compare the price of the shoe listed in the previous paragraph to this one, you’ll obviously notice that the price is significantly increased here. That's largely because this particular shoe was so popular that it sold out to the point that it's almost impossible to find it, even on resale sites. It features the classic low sneaker with white and pink leather, this time with the pink being a similar color to that of pink bubblegum. The Nike symbol is done in white here and the color combination was easily one of the most popular variations that the company ever sold with regard to this particular sneaker. As previously mentioned, they're almost impossible to find. If you are lucky enough to find a pair in your size, be prepared to pay a significant amount of money in order to get them.
3. Nike Dunk Low in Pale Coral ($182.00)
This shoe is quite similar to the one listed in the first paragraph, only the colors are even more pastel. Just as the product description implies, it's almost closer to being a coral color as opposed to pink. That said, there's just enough pink that is still left in the colors to allow it to qualify as such. It's a great option for those individuals who love the idea of these sneakers, yet have never been entirely sold on the idea of owning any wardrobe item that's pink in color. Some people love the color and others aren't so fond of it. That's precisely why Nike made this particular sneaker with certain color variations. It allows them to introduce this product to a larger audience and it also gives you, the buyer, more options than you would otherwise have.
2. Nike Women’s Dunk High “Pink Prime” ($167.00)
The first thing that you're likely to notice here is that these shoes are quite a bit different from the other sneakers in this product line. From one thing, they're the only high-tops that are offered in the line as opposed to all of the other sneakers which are designed in a more traditional fashion. They feature the same white and pink leather, but the upper portion of the high-tops are velcro, something that was extremely popular back in the 1980s. The pink color is also something that stands out quite a lot. It's about as pink as you can get, almost becoming fluorescent under the right lighting conditions. If you want something that will stand out in a crowd, even amongst many other individuals, then this is definitely one way to get the job done. You might also notice that the shoes tend to sell for a lower price point than some of the others on this list. That's because they weren't quite as popular as Nike had hoped. As such, they don't command such a price as some of the other options.
1. Nike Dunk Low TD “Valentine’s Day” ($149.00 - $750.00)
These shoes are among the most sought-after examples out of this entire line. They offer the white and pastel pink leather that was made so popular with this particular line of sneakers, with one very unique difference. The Nike symbol is the color of beets, a deep, rich color that really finishes off the entire look of the shoe. Depending on the size that you want to purchase, you might pay anywhere from just under $150 all the way up to $750 or even more. You also might have the opportunity to own a pair of sneakers that you can wear (and love) for years to come and it's not likely to be something that everyone else in your circle also has.
