UPDATE: Nike has just confirmed that the crossover “Black Hornet” SB Dunk High will be available for purchase on Nike SNKRS on February 23 for $110 USD.


Original Article – February 15, 2018: Following the preview of the “Black Hornet” Nike SB Dunk High, Black Sheep Skate Shop now unveils its accessories-filled packaging. Coming in a bee hive-inspired shoe box, the pack of the coveted crossover sneakers includes a toy basketball, honeycomb deubrés, a co-labeled drawstring bag, a set of extra laces, and “Nike SB” stickers.

Remaining pairs will be dropped on the Charlotte-based skate shop’s website after the exclusive release in store. The iteration will then hit select skate shops on February 22 and Nike SNKRS on February 24, coming without the premium packaging.


All-Star weekend’s loaded releases welcome an appropriate collaboration hailing from Charlotte’s own Black Sheep Skate Shop. The forthcoming release links the boutique with Nike SB for a special Dunk High silhouette. Dubbed “Black Hornet,” you’ll find special nods to the city of Charlotte thanks to its iridescent mix of purple and dark turquoise. The popular elephant print used on the classic Air Jordan 3 is also incorporated into the model’s toe and heel areas. The lateral and medial’s Swoosh insignias also add in stinger accents to their respective points to top off the design.

The release will also see a “Hornet’s Nest” iteration – available exclusively at Black Sheep which will be housed in special packaging that includes custom Nike SB stickers, mini foam basketballs, extra sets of stinger-inspired laces, honeycomb dubraes and woven dust bags.

The Black Sheep x Nike SB Dunk High “Black Hornet” arrives February 15 at select Nike SB retailers and BlackSheepNC.com. In related news, Nike SB followers can take a look at the forthcoming Girls Don’t Cry x Nike SB Dunk Low.
