The title is a work in progress, it nearly works. In short, we are eager to share the news that The Grateful Dead, the hippy dream which refuses to retire gracefully and continues to find new opportunities for revenue in every dustbin, are releasing some trainers…or more precisely, Nike are.
The NME…yes, still just about a thing…reports:
“The shoes, named ‘Nike SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead’, were inspired by the legendary band’s iconic bears, first seen on the back cover of the band’s 1973 live album ‘History of the Grateful Dead, Volume 1 (Bear’s Choice)’.
With a faux-fur and suede exterior, and an image of the bear on the tongue, the shoes come with a bear-featuring slip and a pouch on the inside of the tongue for storing weed”
The shoes come in three different colours and cost $110 (£87). The orange version will be available from this Saturday (July 18) via FTC Skateshop, with the green and yellow versions arriving next Friday (July 24) via Nike’s app SNKRS.
