The Black Sheep x Nike SB Dunk High “Paid in Full” was originally set to release on June 21, but will no longer be dropping. The North Carolina skate shop just announced via its Instagram this afternoon that the release has been cancelled. The message was accompanied with a photo of a broken boombox. A fitting piece of imagery considering the sneakers were going to come in old school boombox-inspired packaging.
Black Sheep didn’t provide an explanation as to why they pulled the plug on the sneaker, but given the apparent Gucci-themed design, could the luxury label have played a role in this outcome? We’ll never really know, but it’s definitely a bad day for ‘heads that were looking forward to this collab.
