Nike SB has always been known for producing sneakers that celebrate worldly pleasures and ahem, other fun things. Previewed back in 2020, the Nike SB Dunk High Strawberry Cough was seen and never to be heard from again. The pair literally ghosted the sneaker community with a few samples lying around and selling for insane prices. However, that is set to change as the 4/20 themed sneaker recently resurfaced and is showing signs of an official release sometime soon.
A Todd Bratrud-designed pair, the artist is known for creating the SB Dunk Skunk, the Strangelove, and the infamous Freddy Kruegers, among countless others. For this one, he makes another design breakthrough yet again.
A predominantly red Nike Dunk High with green flourishes, the shoe is done up in rich shades of red textured leather with shaggy, marijuana-like textures on the Swooshes, collars, and heel overlays that appear to be suede. The strawberry cartoon icon can be found on the back heel and the insoles of the shoe, further emphasizing its Strawberry Cough theme. Completing the look are translucent soles with mascot graphics that add a distinct pop to the sneaker.
So, when will the Nike SB Dunk High Strawberry Cough actually drop?
The question remains though as to when and if these will actually drop. Unpredictable and quirky, these sneakers are a naughty addition to any sneakerhead with fun “extracurricular” activities in mind. Enjoy the photos for the meantime.
