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.
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.
