Nike Skateboarding has once again linked up with Minneapolis’ own Familia skate shop to introduce its latest addition to the Nike SB Dunk line. The themed high top model draws inspiration from childhood lumberjack character Paul Bunyan and Babe, his blue ox.A blue body features an embossed, synthetic leather upper that represents the swirling appearance of Babe’s hide. Suede blue paneling, sits atop an equally tinted midsole and bottom sole. Nike SB x Familia has also designed a colored, custom embroidered emblem featuring an ox head and two crossing axes seen on the heel of the sneaker. Further embellishment include Nike’ striking swoosh as a yellow ox horn. The skate shoe is then finished with black and red flannel inner lining that matches its detailing.
Paul’s signature look and a graphic foot insert are also included. If you’d like to purchase a pair, release date has been set for Saturday, July 4, 2015 at 10AM. Stay tuned to SNKRBST.com for more info.
