Chalamet Embraces the Quirky Chocolatier Vibe with His Willy Wonka Dunks

Well, Nike isn’t the sole player riding the wave! Converse joins the fun, dropping a Wonka sneaker collection in December. However, nothing compares to the epic Willy Wonka Dunks.

In fact, Nike has a history with Wonka-inspired kicks, like the 2005 ‘Oompa Loompa’ Nike SB Dunk. Nevertheless, the upcoming Wonka Dunks take it to the extreme, paying tribute to Wonka’s youthful attire with intentionally distressed detailing. “Unlike any Dunks I’ve seen,” Chalamet exclaimed.

So, Chalamet’s design journey included drawing inspiration from classics like “What The Dunk” and Sacai’s layered Swooshes. As for this Willy Wonka dunks, the pair itself mirrors Wonka’s film wardrobe, with a vibrant upper, a burgundy velvet tongue, and nods to Wonka’s cloud candy. The design even references Chalamet’s movie jacket at Nike’s Beaverton campus.

Unique features abound, a chocolate brown tongue tag with Wonka’s “W,” a transformed heel logo, and a quote from the film. Each of the FIVE pairs comes in a velvet shoe bag, snug in a sturdy wooden special box.Timothee Chalamet Wonka DunksWonka Movie 2023
