The Black Sheep x Nike SB Dunk High “Gucci” that’s been sneaking onto the newswire via some previews over the past couple of months looks to more specifically be a reference to Rakim and Eric B’s masterpiece Paid in Full. The Gucci-style SB logos are actually a reference to the Dapper Dan jackets that the two wore on the cover of that classic album, with the green and gold accents further linking things up with the cover in question. That old-school flavor will be extra present in the deluxe edition launching at Black Sheep on 6/14, which features dookie rope lace dubraes and the boombox packaging. See the promo video for these Black Sheep Dunks below and remember that a wider release is scheduled for 6/21
These would have been so much better without the sb logos. Should of done something different. I was only gonna cop cause of the sweet box and stuff but I'm nowhere near NC so I guess this is a pass.
