The Nike Dunk is an institution in the sneaker world, a model that’s been going strong for over a quarter-century with well over that still left in the tank. The Dunk is one of those foundational models that’s seen a bit of attention stolen by the newfangled lifestyle sneakers that’ve come onto the scene in the past couple years, and that’s where this newest custom release from Pimp My Kicks comes into play. Handcrafted by Hollywood’s Oliver Moore Bootmakers, the Nike Dunk Hybrid Dress collection by PMK pairs rich mahogany and olive dress leather with black authentic alligator for a mere 5 pairs each of the ‘Spy’/wingtip and ‘Soldier’/captoe Highs along with the ‘Tailor’/penny loafer Lows and another lowtop that echoes the ‘Golf Pack’ Dunk Low SB’s tassled lace cover. The quality is apparent in more images you’ll see after the jump, and in a world where we haven’t yet seen a Dunk Bespoke experience, is it possible these are some of the nicest pairs ever created? Let us know what you think and stick with Sneaker News for more custom sneaker designs.

Mikev is completely telling the truth. I've lost $490 because of these d-heads. Don't promote their stuff Sneakernews- they're all a bunch of damn scammers.
The custom sneakers side of the website is a complete scam. Purchased shoes in August 2008 and they have ignored my recent emails. If i try to place a new order though they happily take it, without filling there previous orders. I beg you not to waste money on this site because i lost $400 and i am just trying to stop others from losing money to them.
my boss would still write me up for wearin these...if they were swooshless than maybe i could get away. true prik for real.
I dont always wear loafers, but when i do, i make sure they are Nike Dunk Dress Customs. Stay fly my friends.
Great concept but I would like to see a all brown version. In my opinion the olive side panels weren't necessary
If I had these growing up, it would've made Church a lot more tolerable. Definitely would've preferred these over some hard bottoms. Long over due...way fly.
Mike you are full of it and will be held accountable for the lies that you choose to spread on PMK. You have been contacted multiple times since this post and before. It seems that you are the scammer, giving out false contact information. If you really wanted you sneakers you would cooperate. At this point our legal TEAM will be handling this matter. You will be a example to the rest of your friends. PMK® is official. President/Creative Director AJ
