The first images of the official Nike SB 4/20 release have been revealed, thanks to @thehypecollector. This year, the Swoosh’s skateboarding division will be creating an exciting Nike SB Dunk Hi for the occasion.
Nike SB did not hold back for this special edition sneaker, bringing together a variety of unique materials and patterns. A thick forest green suede is used around the toe box, general structure, and eyelets. Brown horsehair is used on the ankle, with black on the tongue, and finally a speckled hair in the middle portion of the shoe. This is all strapped down with a bright red Swoosh.
While Nike has made it a tradition of dropping a special 4/20 shoe, they generally do not openly promote the connection to the holiday. However, while past pairs have had a stricter connection to a specific plant, this pair have a look that reminds of the Flintstones. Still, the materials used and zany look of the shoe keep it on the mark for what is expected.
UPDATE: Nike SB Dunk High “Dog Walker” is the celebrated 4/20 SB release this year. Look for the drop on April 20 at select Nike SB retailers for $120 USD.
