Bucket of Fail: Nike Vunk: Air Max 95 x Dunk

air-max-95-dunk-vunk-01Nike has finally done the inevitable: The Dunk and the Air Max 95 have been “hybridized”, and here is the result.  Obviously, we too also reached for a trash recepticle when we also saw it.  Apparently called the “Vunk”, the first release coming later this year is thankfully only to be produced for kids (GS), though no word yet if an “adult” model is to be released.  The reason why this is a bucket of fail begins with the Air Max 95, a shoe ahead of its time when it first came out. It was the magic shoe that took the Air Max shoe to whole ‘nother level (leaps beyond the 1 and 90) to what it is today.  The Dunk is a quintessential shoe (like the Air Force) for Nike and the shoe culture, but its more conventional lines just don’t work well with the 95.  I don’t even want to speculate how they would look with another Air Max (1 or 90, enough with the Hybrids Nike!).  The only thing we like here is the Neon colorway: Save that trim for a regular Dunk Low or SB, and you have shoe that will sell.


Obviously, it gets worse, because the shoes were meant for kids.
