The Nike Dunk High Skinny Shoe: Timeless design and support. With a slim high-top profile for extra stability, the Nike Dunk High Skinny Women's Shoe delivers a premium fit and old-school hoops flavor. Benefits. Canvas upper with leather overlays for comfort and support. Full-length EVA midsole for lightweight cushioning and impact absorption. Rubber outsole with pivot point in forefoot for traction, mobility and durability. Origins. Be true-to your school colors, to your school of thought. That's been the ethos driving the Nike Dunk since it launched in 1985. Back then, seven college basketball teams broke an unwritten rule and matched their Dunks to their uniforms. A riot of color ensued and the Nike Dunk has been a symbol of individual expression ever since. Players, skaters and collectors all picked up on the shoe-and continue to influence it today.
