A sample pair of an unreleased De La Soul x Nike SB Dunk Low has surfaced. Nike’s famed skateboarding sneaker has seen a vibrant history of the past two decades, from coveted sneaker collaborations and more, most of contemporary sneaker culture developed during the Nike SB-era.

Inspired by De La Soul’s 2001 album, AOI: Bionix, the unreleased Dunk Low sample has surfaced via Project Blitz. Most evidently the sneakers share a similar future-tinged look to the album’s cover, opting for silver patent leather that covers the shoe’s entire upper. More details include the album’s name embroidered on the heel in a contrasting black, with more contrasting hits showcased through its white midsole and black outsole.
