I know. His birthday isn't for over another month so I kind of want to give them to him early so he can enjoy them before fall with the slush and snow but he's very insistent (like a lot of British people I find) on opening his gifts the day of his birthday. With some spray protector though, they should be fine. He also normally wears adidas so I think he'll just be pleased at receiving a pair of Tier 0 Nike's.

yeah, the spray protector should do it. I just remember the time I had these suede pumas(while back) and I loved these shoes, but the rain just ruined them even since then, I no longer buy suede shoes..lol.

But your boyfriend will love them either way. It's better if you give him the gift in a bday bag. Everyone seems to be curious to know what's inside the bag than an actual wrap gift.

hahaha I prefer wrapped gifts to bags! But the box might give it away.....either way, I love the tonal look of those Dunk Hi's. If they made them in woman's sizes I would totally get them for myself. I love the idea of a totally solid colored hi top but with multiple layered elements....

My brothers and my boyfriend love their Nike Dunks, but they just don't look good on me. I guess I can't pull them off I stick with my Pumas and my Cons.

I've noticed this too, especially among the Hollywood tween set. But they're a little late on the trend - Dunks were made popular and stylish by inner-city youth many years ago. I've also found that Hollywood femmes just don't wear it right. The only celebrity that can seriously rock a pair of Dunks is Kanye.
