Nike Dunk vs Air Max 90 Sizing

Men’s Photo Comparing Nike Dunks to Air Max 90 Sizing

Below is a photo of my men’s Nike Dunks compared to Nike Air Max 90 (both size 12). Both fit within the realm of true to size, however, if you made me choose, I would say that the Nike Dunk on the right has just a tiny bit more length. Overall, the sizing length is quite similar:

Some men feel like the Nike Air Max 90 has a narrow toe area, and if you look at the photo above, you can kind of see a narrow, pointed shape right at the edge of the toe box. This may create a snug feeling for some people depending on the shape of your foot.

However, when I compared the toe box areas side-by-side, I found the overall depth of the toe box to be similar (I personally did not notice a snug fit):

The main takeaway is you can expect these two shoes to have a reasonably similar length, but just keep in mind that some men feel like the toe box area is a bit roomier in the Nike Dunk than the Nike Air Max 90.
