One of Nike SB’s more anticipated collaborations of 2020 is with Grateful Dead, whose famed dancing bears have become a symbol of the legendary rock band’s influence on music and culture for decades. With that first green/blue version surfacing some weeks ago, many hypothesized that Nike would possibly release all five color variations of the bears – one enticingly more limited than another. This first image of an orange/green pair confirms those theories, and we can confirm that there is at least one more colorway of the furry Dunks coming. Unlike the green/blue pair, this Grateful Dead Dunk makes use of a gum sole and white midsole, whereas the previously mentioned green/blue (and much more common pair) matches its lower end with the upper. A release date hasn’t been set just yet, although an October release rumor has been circulating.
In other SB news, the Ben Jerrys Dunks release on Nike SNKRS via Draw on May 26th.
