This shoe may be nicknamed after an ice cream, but we have a feeling a few of you will be thinking ‘Tiffany.’ The shoe’s Crystal Mint canvas upper is completely covered black speckles, along with having a black Swoosh and lining.

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.
If you missed out on the first-ever Nike SB x Air jordan 1 sneaker that dropped in March, you’ll get a chance to cop the newest collab next month. Inspired by skate legend Lance Mountain, the latest SB Jordan 1s will be mismatched with one “Royal” and one “Bred” and painted in solid black and white. It’s only until the sneakers have actually been worn that you’ll start to see what’s hiding beneath the painted surface. So remember: wear your kicks.
The Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 releases on Saturday, June 7th. Both the black and white colorways will be available and retail for $150 each.

Last month, North Carolina skateshop Black Sheep announced its collaboration with Nike SB by revealing a shoe box designed after an old school boombox. With a release scheduled for this summer, it looks like we’re getting closer to a full reveal. Take a look at these recent teaser photos that provide a good look at the upcoming collab.
Using the Nike SB Dunk High, the sneaker features an all-over “SB” print on the paneling that closely resembles the Gucci monogram. There’s also subtle hits of red and green on the interior and outsole, while a gold Nike Swoosh completes the luxe theme. Matching belt, wallet, and bucket hat not included.
An official release date has not yet been announced, but with summer just weeks away, expect to see a full look at the Black Sheep x Nike SB collaboration very soon.

Even though Nike SB and Jordan Brand just officially collaborated this year on an Air Jordan 1 sneaker, skaters have been putting in work on the high-top sneaker since they originally released in the ’80s. Even though there’s an entire Nike SB category devoted to skate shoes now, it’s nice to see the tradition of skating in MJ’s first Nike sneaker live on. Check out Eric Koston, who’s a huge sneakerhead himself, doing a 360 flip in a pair of “Bred” 1s. Hypebeasts. Don’t cringe too much now. After all, they’re just sneakers.

We now have some new images of the upcoming Black/Silver-Varsity Red colorway of the Nike SB Dunk High Premium.
Featuring a reflective 3M black upper, the kicks see a metallic silver Swoosh alongside an icy outsole and Varsity Red hits on the midsole stitching and tongue tab branding.
Expect these to turn up soon as a limited release at select Nike SB accounts.
This Summer, Supreme has joined Nike SB to commemorate the 10 Year Anniversary of the Supreme Dunk Low.

Nike has revealed that they have collaborated with the giant brand of Levis which is featured on their products of shoes and apparel.
