Black Sheep x Nike SB Dunk High “Gucci”

black-sheep-nike-sb-gucci-2-960x640Black Sheep teamed up with Nike SB on the Dunk High and they took an interesting retro route for the collaboration. Heavily inspired by luxury brand Gucci, the high top sneaker does not only come with its signature red/green colors on the otherwise black/white upper, but the iconic “GG” pattern has been twisted into a “SB” pattern all over the upper, further hinting at the inspiration. It will be interesting to see if the association will get any attention in Italy. The Black Sheep x Nike SB Dunk High is scheduled to release on June 21, 2014black-sheep-nike-sb-gucci-1-960x640

Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 by Lance Mountain

nike-sb-x-air-jordan-1-by-lance-mountain-5The second installment in the crossover between Nike’s skateboarding and Air Jordan canons comes courtesy of skate veteran Lance Mountain. Though regarded as a legend for his contributions to pool and jump ramp shredding in the late 1980′s, Mountain also introduced Michael Jordan’s first professional model to skateboarding’s fashion sense – purely by circumstance. Around the time of Bones Brigade’s highly-influential In Search of Animal Chin video, Mountain filmed his footage in mismatched Air Jordan 1‘s, customized with paint markers and multi-colored laces for durability and uniqueness – a style reiterated in this current incarnation. Over 20 years later, here we find the Air Jordan 1 silhouette done up with premium black leather uppers, detailed respectively with red and blue accents. As each pair is worn away, the shoe becomes an individual statement – exactly as those radical Californian punks intended years ago. A video below gives Mountain’s take on the shoe, which releases online and at select Nike SB retailers on June 7.nike-sb-x-air-jordan-1-by-lance-mountain-4 nike-sb-x-air-jordan-1-by-lance-mountain-5 nike-sb-x-air-jordan-1-by-lance-mountain-6 nike-sb-x-air-jordan-1-by-lance-mountain-1 nike-sb-x-air-jordan-1-by-lance-mountain-2 nike-sb-x-air-jordan-1-by-lance-mountain-3

After its last appearance in 2005, the highly coveted “Tiffany” motif is set to return to Nike SB on February 8 by way of the Nike SB Dunk High. Today, we have been presented with official imagery of the highly anticipated collaborative release.

Considered to be one of the greatest SB Dunk themes of all time, the infamous croc-embossed black paneling is paired up with aqua blue leather and mesh yet again for what is sure to be one of the year’s top releases.

With under two weeks left before their release there is still no definite news on a UK release (February 8), so at the moment expect to see these at Nike for $108 stateside
