Nike Dunk Hi SB Venom


1. Nike Dunk Hi SB Venom

Description:The Nike Dunk High Pro SB – Venom (Black / White) are inspired by one of Spider Man’s enemies from the Marvel Comics, Venom. Pinned as one of Spider Man’s rivals in the cartoon series, Venom is notorious for his black and white body, which is mimicked on this pair of Dunks. These are one of the best comic character influenced shoes (probably because you can’t tell as they’re just black and white).
