12ozProphet x Nike – AKA Wet Look Dunks

Inspired by the vintage Wet Look spray paint cans beautifully photographed for 12ozProphet’s Also Known As v1 book, The Nike Wet Look Dunk collection was a head-turning collaboration between 12ozProphet and Nike. With colors like “Groovy Green” and “Hash Brown,” the Wet Look color palette paid homage to an earlier era of graffiti. Applying the Wet Look palette to the Nike Dunk in an all patent leather design resulted in a truly beautiful and coveted sneaker. Featured by Nike in its Dunk Chronicles, a publication that recognizes the most impactful and collectable Nike Dunks of all time, chosen by Complex Magazine as one of the “Best Dunks of All Time” and published extensively in style books over the last few years, the Wet Look Dunk collection was a milestone moment for the NikeID program. With a limited production of five sets, and only one set of Wet Look Dunks made available to the public through a charity fundraiser, the sneakers are some of the rarest made by Nike. The single set made available to the public was auctioned for a winning bid of $14,900, a record breaking amount at the time. All proceeds from the auction benefitted Free Arts NYC.
