While Nike SB is backing down a bit on the 4/20 releases, they clearly have no qualms about doing tie-in colorways paying tribute to specific varieties of a different, and wholly legal mind altering substance. The latest pair to add to that hallowed tradition aims for a bit of a classier beverage than those included in last month’s ‘Beer Bottle’ pack, evoking the crushed velvet bag of-age folks prone to Crown Royal should be familiar with. Along with the purple suede upper the sneaker is punched up a bit with gold touches on the Swoosh and other accents to make the ‘royal’ aspect that much more evident. Stay with us after the jump for the full shots and be on the lookout for the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Crown Royal’ at accounts like Premier now.
I like Crown Royal. I'm probably one of the few people on here old enough to drink it. But I think this shoe is gimmicky and stupid. Not to mention girly.
