Nike SB Dunk High ‘Cheech & Chong’ Release Cancelled
April 15th, 2011 by John K.
The upcoming Todd Bratrud x Nike SB Dunk High ‘Cheech & Chong’
has created a stirring debate on Sneaker News since it was first unveiled, but the discussion is about to grow tenfold. Nike SB retailers such as Note
who have received their shipments of the Cheech & Chong SB Dunk Highs have reported a cancellation of the release of the shoe due to copyright purposes (similar to why the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Freddy Krueger’
was shelved). Any connection? The Nightmare on Elm St. franchise is under the wing of New Line Cinema, while ‘Up In Smoke’ was produced from Paramount Studios. Perhaps Hollywood is banding together to put a stop to these movie-themed releases, or did the public recognition
fire a red alert to the studio execs? Stick with Sneaker News for more updates regarding this rumored cancellation and let us know – does this create a ‘hype’ around the shoe? via N-SB
