Complex Magazine just put together a list of the 50 Best Nike Dunks of all time, and the AKA Wet Look Dunks came in at number 10 on their list. No doubt, most sneaker heads would argue a list like this to death, but all of us at AKANYC are honored to take Complex Magazines number 10 spot. Speaking of lists, the AKA Wet Look Dunks made THE list a while back when Nike put together their official list of the top Dunks of all time. I got a cool little feature on the Nike website as part of their Chronicles.
Allen Benedikt, purveyor of AKA (also known as) and curator of 12oz. (Complex Cartel what up!) put together this set of patent low tops inspired by iconic spray can colors. There were only a few sets of these sneakers, never released at retail. Instead, Benedikt worked with Nike to raffle the shoes off to benefit Free Arts NYC—a non-profit organization that helps at-risk and neglected children. The set of seven dunks raised nearly $15,000. Win/win.
