Nike X Grateful Dead?!?!

By July 22, 2020Releases, Shoe MGK

If you are a fan of good music and even better times, you gotta be a fan of The Dead. The Grateful Dead began their hollowed career in 1965 making their mark at the infamous Ken Kasey Acid Test events in the Bay Area. 55 years later and that unique psychedelic sound of the Grateful Dead still fills arenas to this day.  One thing that any Deadhead will tell a non listener is that the music they recorded is not that great. They were a jam band. They relied on improvising their way through live performances and parlaying that into beautiful soundscapes and hypnotizing progressions. Their live performances and shows are the heart and soul of the band. Past concerts and festivals are still in high regalia amongst fans and newcomers alike. It is only fitting that a band so reliant and skilled in performance, is collaborating with the ultimate performance shoe company; Nike.

The Grateful Dead NIke SB Dunk Low’s are set to release Friday July 24th. Nike is coming out with a Yellow Colorway that will be released online. There is a Green and Orange colorway coming out as well but without an official date.

 

The Grateful Dead Nike SB’s will feature fuzzy faux fur and a special secret pocket located in the tongue of the shoe. These shoes are a trip and a half. It is clear that the inspiration behind these are the famous dancing bears associated with the band. The Yellow colorway is contrasted with a beautiful electric blue sole and swoosh. When talking about this sole, one cannot help but to notice the durability and strength. Nike has commented about these shoes being specifically designed for skating and doing so quite fashionably.

This new drop from Nike is a sneakerheads dream. The resale value of these shoes are already projected to be in the thousands and might even reach as high as five grand for a certain colorway. IF you do decide to cop these bad boys, you gotta make sure to not scuff them up when you take them for a spin. If you do though, Shoe MGK has your back. When you take one of the greatest bands, one of the greatest shoe companies, and THE best shoe cleaner in the world, you can’t go wrong. Respect Your Shoes.
