Do Nike Dunks Run Big Or Small?

Nike Dunks run true to size for most people. When compared to other models of shoe by Nike, they do run a little wider. This means that there is ample room within the toe box to allow for flex and comfort. If you prefer a snug fit, you can always size down half a size.

Nike introduced the Nike Dunk SB specifically for use on the skatepark. If you are buying a pair of Nike Dunk SB and want a roomy fit, you may want to go up half a size. Those looking for a snug fit will find that buying their usual size works.

Nike Dunks are wider than the Air Jordan 1s. However, the difference isn’t huge so you should buy the same size in both models of shoe.
