Nike has joined up with Grateful Dead rock icons of the ’60s to create one of their loudest Dunks ever. The collab consists of three ultra-bright, purple, black, and green Nike SB Dunk Low colorways, both of which make reference to the band’s 1973 album History of the Grateful Dead, Volume One (Bear’s Choice) and its artwork.
Plush faux fur covers the bulk of the upper shoe and is paired with tonal suede plates. Information begin with a bear badge on the tongue and insole, while an electronic Swoosh graces either side with the jagged edge seen in the branding tradition of the Grateful Dead.

Noise will also only suit noise, rather than muted, and this is definitely one of those instances. So taking it back to the ’60s with a tripped-out ensemble of Needles, Kapital, and Ceramics Online loves.
Denim, the true equalizer, is just as perfect for the rock & roll world as it is for country, blues , jazz and just about every other cultural subculture. It just happens that by bringing a sound that combined aspects of all those genres, the Grateful Dead made their mark. Keep it traditional with a Levi’s denim top, and make sure the Grateful Dead know all too well it has that effortlessly chic distressed look.
Enhance the eye-catching light with a ’60s-style pair of shades. The psychedelic rock world basically invented sunglasses, right? And with those choices, pay homage to the forefathers.
