Nike Skateboarding teamed up with legendary psychedelic rock band Grateful Dead to release the Nike SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead Bears Green, now available on StockX. The design theme of this collaboration pays homage to the Grateful Dead Bears, a series of stylized dancing bears illustrated by Bob Thomas on the back cover of the album History of the Grateful Dead, Volume One (Bear’s Choice) in 1973.
The SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead Bears Green features a fuzzy green faux-fur upper with suede overlays and a jagged Swoosh to represent the stylization of the bear’s chest fur. A hidden stash pocket is featured inside the tongue that is perfect for extra storage. A green midsole, blue outsole, and signature Grateful Dead branding on the tongue complete this euphoric design. These sneakers released in July of 2020
