Situated just east of Downtown LA, Pawnshop Skate Co. has been serving the Covina skateboarding community ever since 2010, although a fire did put a halt on much of their operations back in 2020. Thankfully, however, they quickly got back on their feet thanks to the support of longtime patrons, a testament to how important the storefront is to the 626. Nike SB, too, has seemingly kept a watchful eye on Anthony Piscopo and company, as they’ve offered the team their very own Dunk High.

Premium materials are front and center here, building out much of the late Peter Moore’s beloved design. High quality leathers, for starters, wrap most of the shoe’s exterior, from the toe cap to the Swoosh and heel counter. Stained in an extremely dark, almost black shade of brown, these panels smarten up the shoe next to blacked out laces and eyelets as well as gilded wings that sprawl across side. Additional pops of gold sit adjacent as well, highlighting the branding on insole as well as on the front and backside of the tongue.

For a closer look at Pawnshop’s upcoming Nike SB Dunk High, check out the in-hand imagery below. As of writing this, no firm release date has been announced, so sit tight and await future updates.

In other news, a size New Balance 1906R is in the works.
