The Born x Raised x Nike SB Dunk Low Gets Official Release Date
Following the tragic death of co-founder Chris Printup.
Nike and its coveted SB label continue to try their hand at more and more collaborations, from Run the Jewels to Jarritos. Earlier this year, the skate-inspired sneaker series returned with another striking team-up, this time courtesy of Born x Raised, with its initial release date delayed as a result of the death of Born x Raised co-founder Chris “Spanto” Printup.
Landing in the form of an SB Dunk Low silhouette, the sneaker is reinvented with a bright white and blue color scheme, with crisp white accenting the shoe’s tongues, quarter panels and toe boxes, while a bold blue hue takes over the sneaker’s overlays. Toe boxes swap out their typical dotted perforations for distinctive cross shapes, and the shoe’s classic heels are further enhanced by holographic panels and “Born SB” branding.
Born x Raised’s signature motto, “One Block at a Time”, appears across the sneaker’s tongues and toe tips, with “In Loving Memory” plastered across the laces. Statement wording continues to make an appearance as the phrase “On the Turf” appears with a 3D block on the shoe’s heels. Elsewhere, the sneaker comes complete with jeweled upper eyelets, holographic accents on the medial Swooshes and pink embroidered emblems on the shoe’s heel counters.
Back in June, the sneaker’s release date was delayed out of respect for Printup and now, it appears the highly-anticipated collab is making its way back onto the release calendar. Take a closer look at the kicks above, now slated for release on September 28.
