The intoxicating smell of new sneakers is about to be accompanied by a fruity side. Nike is readying the release of its “Fruity Pack”, which will see the SB Dunk High and Low take on cherry, pineapple, apple green and raspberry blue colors.
The four-part collection is set to see a release this spring, and there’s even growing suspicion that they’re themed 4/20 – the ultimate stoner’s vacation. The brand may have just tried to be cute with goofy fruit graphics on the tongue labels, but they also look pretty stoned. It’s also worth mentioning that each of the fruits involved has a weed strain named after them in the market.
Finish your fruit salad — Nike’s all-fruit meal begins with a course of SB Dunk High “Pineapple,” which comes dressed in a Pale Yellow upper with Orange soles and overlays. The Swoosh comes in bright yellow to continue the tonal arrangement, while green heel tabs break up the sunny color scheme as a nod to the leafy pineapple crown.
The “Cherry” iteration takes the SB Dunk Low up with a bright red leather upper and burgundy sole. Suede dresses up the burgundy and Swoosh overlays for added texture. The first two sneakers in the “Fruity Pack” are the only ones to see their official images surface, but unofficial snaps from leakers @depeche23mode and @apolloluo1976 show what else is in store.
Light blue and dark blue coat SB Dunk Low “Blue Raspberry”, while the SB Dunk Low “Green Apple” flaunts the green exterior of its namesake. Traditional tongue labels are saved for the main hue of all four pairs, but the undersides give way to graphics of some very happy fruits.
If 4/20 is indeed a tie, the sneakers follow Nike’s Dunk High “Strawberry Cough” sneaker from last year as the latest in a series of marijuana-themed sneakers from the Swoosh. Artist Todd Bratrude designed the coughing strawberry graphic, which somewhat resembles the ones in this pack. As the holiday fast approaches, the intersection of stoners and sneakerheads may have more than their appetites can handle.
