A first look at a February Nike SB Dunk High Quickstrike release is upon us, inspired by black skateboarder Chuck Treese of the metal band McRad. Treese is the first black skateboarder to ever grace the cover of Thrasher magazine, which occurred in an issue in 1984 (noted by the ’84 embroidery on the outer toe of the shoe). The colorway is derived from the ‘Absence of Sanity’ album, with suede and twill materials adorning the upper. In addition, the Chuck Treese x Nike SB Dunk High’McRad’ is set to hit select Nike SB accounts in February – the observed month for Black History. More images below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this upcoming release.
