In a statement on Instagram, StrangeLove Skateboards announced that it would be canceling the release of the deluxe packaging it had prepared for its Nike SB Dunk Low collaboration.

The statement reveals that some eager customers got a hold of the product page ahead of the drop time and created a disturbance with the ever-prevalent sneaker bots. In just two minutes, the bots ruined the shop’s original intention to get pairs into the hands of loyal and supportive customers forcing the cancellation. Check out the statement below which urges those genuinely looking to get their hands on the collaboration to support local retailers releasing the shoes.

Priced at $100 USD, the StrangeLove Skateboards x Nike SB Dunk Low will release at SB stockists like The Berrics’ Canteen on February 7, and Nike SNKRS on February 8.

For more footwear news, the Nike SB Dunk Low “Safari” recently received a release date.
