Nike Dunk High Sizing Guide w/ Photos [Fit Big or Small?]


This Nike Dunk High Sizing Guide uses direct comparison photos where I put my Nike Dunk High shoes next to other popular shoes so you can see the difference in sizing and width. After trying these shoes, do Nike Dunk High run big or small?

Nike Dunk High shoes fit true to size for most people. When I compared them side-by-side to other types of retro athletic shoes, I found the sizing to be very comparable for both men and women. However, I would advise you to look at the sizing photos I took so you can judge for yourself. Click here to jump ahead on the page to view the men’s side-by-side comparison photos.

As I mentioned above, I found the Nike Dunk High to fit true to size compared to many other types of retro athletic shoes. For example, here are my Nike Dunk High shoes (on the right) compared to Air Jordan 1 Sizing for both men and women (men’s photo first):

It is worth noting that I found my Nike Dunk High shoes to fit a little bit smaller than Air Force 1 sizing. AF1’s are well-known for having a loose fit design that runs bigger than normal shoe sizing. If you look closely below, you can see the AF1 on the left fits a tiny bit longer in length than the Nike Dunk High:

The main takeaway is to expect Nike Dunk Highs to fit true-to-size for most people, but I would recommend you to scroll down and look at all the sizing comparison photos so you can judge for yourself. All men’s photos use a size 12 shoe and all women’s photos use a size 7 shoe.

Do Nike Dunk High Shoes Fit Wide or Narrow?

Most people find that the Nike Dunk High has a standard width that doesn’t fit too wide or too narrow.

Below is a photo of my Nike Dunk High in regular width compared to extra wide Nike Air Monarch shoes. This may give you a better idea how wide the Nike Dunk High is in regular width:

Again, expect the width of the Nike Dunk High shoes to be standard (meaning it is very comparable to the width of other retro athletic shoes). For example, when you compare the width of Air Jordan 1 to the width of Nike Dunk High, the width is very similar for both men and women (men’s photo first):

However, there are other retro athletic shoes that have a more narrow fit. For example, below is a photo of Nike Blazers (which have a narrow design) compared to Nike Dunk High sizing for both men and women (men’s photo first):

nike-dunk-high-sizing-vs-blazer
womens-nike-dunk-high-sizing-vs-blazer

The main takeaway is expect the width sizing of Nike Dunk High shoes to be very comparable to the width of other athletic shoes for both men and women. However, if you have wide feet, you may need to size up a half size to create extra space.

Nike Dunk High Sizing Conclusion

In my experience, the Nike Dunk High shoes fit true to size for most people. When I compared the sizing of Nike Dunk Highs to the sizing of other popular athletic shoes I found the sizing of the Nike Dunk Highs to fall within the realm of true-to-size for both men and women.
