After some legal troubles from their first attempt of a collaboration, Nike Skateboarding and North Carolina-based Black Sheep are back at it again.
Using the Nike SB Dunk High and taking inspiration from the idiom “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.” Featuring a Summit White upper in a premium, vintage textured suede as a nod to sheep’s wool. A White tongue and White leather Nike Swoosh continue the clean, tonal look. The stark White upper is offset by a Blackout midsole, with an eye catching Red contrast stitching and outsole. Black and Red Nike labeling on the tongue complete the classic look.
Other hidden details to this release includes a White scratch off Swoosh that is designed to rub away with skating or wear to reveal a hidden graphic of menacing wolf fangs. Additionally, the footbeds feature custom artwork of a snarling wolf with bloody fangs and Red eyes peering out from inside the shoes.
A limited edition “Wolf Pack” Deluxe Edition will be available exclusively from Black Sheep. It includes a printed, woven dust bag; assorted custom Nike SB icon stickers with graphic fill; keychain; Fully Laced x Black Sheep Silver fang “dubre” lace locks and matching “Blood Bag” Silver Tip Laces 3-Pack.
Look for the Black Sheep x Nike SB Dunk High “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” and the limited edition “Wolf Pack” to release on Saturday, January 7th exclusively at Black Sheep’s Charlotte, NC flagship location and online.
UPDATE: Nike has announced that they’ll release the collab on January 12th via Nike SNKRS.
