Nike SB has lived throughout the trend for so many years, and what has stayed consistent is the annual tradition of releasing a 4/20 "cannabis-themed" SB around the April 20th date. Coming next month is this Nike SB Dunk High “Dog Walker” edition that features an eclectic mix of canine-related patterns and fur colors on the various panels of the SB shoe. Cool eh, there's also an orange swoosh and a dog collar with the tag attached to the pull tab of the shoe. Although the connection to 4/20 doesn’t seem really obvious, prolly the hairy green suede could allude to the recreational substance similar to how Todd Bratrud’s “Skunk Dunks” expressed its tie to weed. TBA.

The Nike SB Blazer Mid receives an awesome makeover this 2019, thanks to its upcoming collaboration with Frog Skateboards.

The Nike SB Blazer X Frog Skateboards’ upper is treated in brushed suede – akin to past collab with Stüssy — and covered in light green. Paying homage to Frog Skateboards, the centerpiece of this collab pair is a chenille frog graphic peeking out above each lateral Swoosh. Other salient features include pink ladybugs (found on the model’s white laces as well as the rear of each midsole), and extra frog branding on the heel and tongue tabs.

The Nike SB Blazer X Frog Skateboards is now available today at very select Nike SB retailers and for $95 USD

Duffs Gambler is a classic skate shoe. It's very comfortable and durable as the shoes hold up well - thanks to its triple stitching.  It's very well rounded shoe to skate in. It has a good board feel, lightweight, and indeed an OG chunky dad sneaker that's stylish and functional. These shoes are hard to find these days, but if you're a size 9US, you might like this used pair on eBay. $35.

Following up on the Lakers-themed Air Jordan 1 X Nike SB, yet another colorway looks to be on the horizon.

This time, it is presented in a more understated look. It wears a clean bone leather upper with light grey overlays, while black accents hit the midfoot Swoosh, throat, and collar for a bold contrast. Overall, this Nike SB X Air Jordan 1 Bone and Black seems reserved at first glance, but look closer and you’ll notice the brand's trademark wear-away treatment on the Swoosh and grey overlays, which results in bright pink and orange coming through over time.

No official release date information has been revealed, but expect them to hit shelves in April.

Nike SB X Jordan 2019

Nike SB's recent collaboration with Jordan Brand was in 2014 when they released the “Lance Mountain” 1s and now it seems they are reconnecting once again.

According to the rumor mill, there will be a new Nike SB X Jordan collab, and this time around it is going to be a low-top version. As of this writing, it is reported that two colorways will be hitting the streets, one being a “Dark Powder Blue/Dark Powder Blue/White” iteration, while the other version donning a “Midnight Navy/Metallic Silver/White” colorway. It is also said that the two sneakers will be released this coming Summer, with a retail price set at $110 USD a pair.

It looks like we're seeing another version to the Girls Don’t Cry x Nike SB collab. Teased over Instagram, this new colorway features light-gray nubuck uppers and incorporates the Girls Don’t Cry signature color of red — seen on the outsole, insoles, and butterfly tongue patches. Other hints of red are coming in the form of “Girls Don’t Cry” embroidery at the lateral side of the heel, and in the Nike SB embroidery at the top of the heel.

There’s no release date info yet, but stay tuned as official news will soon follow.

Originally released in 2009, the Janoski SBs received lots of makeovers, from sleek slip-on versions to the flexible Janoski Max. This year, it's ringing in its second decade with yet another alternate take: the Janoski Mid Crafted. This Nike SB Janoski Mid Crafted boasts with a new silhouette that’s more moccasin than a boat shoe. Arriving in two colorways, each shoe features a premium suede upper with a raised stitched seam around the toebox. Other salient features include raw-edged laces, accents that drive home the moccasin stylings, a supple brown leather liner, a cork insole, and a sail midsole. TBA.

An exact release date has been announced for this NBA x Nike SB collaboration, which is on January 21st. However, we found out that the Nike SB X NBA (Cavs) is now available at Nike UAE.

It looks like it has arrived a bit earlier than first expected, with a drop currently on target for Friday, Jan. 21 at $110. As expected, this shoe is coated in black paint, taking the Nike SB Dunk High Pro NBA to a new level. The paint fades as you skate, revealing a maroon leather upper and a gold Swoosh design trademark—colours inspired by your favorite NBA team - Cavs. AED 559.


Creative “accidents” often yield the best surprises, and sometimes, they even result in coveted sneakers. Earlier this year, when designer Jeff Staple was moving offices, he went on Instagram and posted an early sample of the “Black Pigeon” Nike SB Dunks. The shoe had “test” colors — black, white, and green — which he jokingly compared to a “Panda.” Like wildfire, sneakerheads around the world were begging for the shoe to become a reality.

“I was trying to organize and unpack, but I ended up reminiscing on Instagram, like a history lesson of the culture, because I have so many artifacts,” says Jeff Staple. “I just wrote a funny caption, that I asked for ‘a pigeon not a panda,’ and it blew up.” At first, Staple wasn’t convinced that they should do a “Panda” version. “We had just dropped a dope shoe in November,” he adds. “I was happy to wait another decade.”

Staple changed his mind once he remembered going on the global launch tour for the black “Pigeon” SB Dunk. At the time, he was excited to see the growing sneaker community in China and knew that he wanted to do another tour, in the future, that would start in his motherland—China, and end in his home—New York City. With the panda’s connection to China, and the pigeon’s connection to NYC, everything about a “Panda” SB Dunk seemed to click.

“That rejected sample was actually 80% there,” says Staple. “The ‘Panda’ SB Dunk is the first time that there’s a ‘Pigeon’ shoe without the pink pigeon on it; it has bamboo green instead. We made a collage of the OG newspaper clippings and put them inside a clear outsole. The exterior Swoosh is white, and the interior Swoosh is the OG pigeon gray.”

Additional details include a green insole with a bamboo graphic, and the interior’s “SAMPLE" stamp typically found in early versions is altered to read “STAPLE / NOT FOR RESELL.” All shoes come in the classic pink box. There will also be “Panda” Staple x Nike SB apparel, with various colors exclusive to certain cities.

“This was really the people's champ shoe, in my opinion,” says Staple. “If they didn't essentially ask for this shoe, it wouldn’t have happened. I love that this came from the voice of the people.”
