Nike Skateboarding in collaboration with the psychedelic rock band The Grateful Dead releases the Nike SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead in two colorways that pay homage to the bands most notable graphic marks: the electric “Steal Your Face” skull, and a chorus of colorful dancing bears (also called Marching Bears). In this edition, the inspiration is mostly drawn from the latter of the two icons.
The silhouette has fuzzy faux fur and smooth suede overlays covering the majority of the shoe’s upper. It also sports an abstract Swoosh which mimics the collars worn by each illustrated bears, featuring a frayed outline unlike any previous version of the design. To accentuate the look, details pointed by the band including aglets adorned with lightning bolts, a restyled font on the heel, and bold text graphics inside both tongues are incorporated. A hidden insignia on the sock liner, alternative laces, and a cleverly obscured zip pocket with a small compartment are what make this heart-felt tribute a mind-boggling masterpiece.
