Nike SB and Charlotte-based skate shop Black Sheep have teamed up again with a collaboration set to launch during the 2019 All-Star weekend. The color scheme pays homage to the iconic colors cemented in Charlotte basketball history during the early ‘90s. As a nod to basketball legend and owner of the Charlotte basketball franchise, the “Black Hornet” Dunk is also decorated with elephant print panels. Inspired by the city of Charlotte’s history, the swoosh is embellished with silver embroidery in the shape of a stinger and the tongue features a hex “hive” pattern to make the buzz even louder.
The Black Sheep x NBA x Nike SB Dunk High “Black Hornet” will launch on the 23rd of February on the Nike Sneakers app in the USA.
