Nike‘s skate-focused Nike SB subdivision has celebrated the 4/20 “holiday” with memorable SB Dunks from the “Skunk” to the “Cheech & Chong” in years past, and for 2021 it’s lit up the SB Dunk High in a potent “Maui Wowie” colorway. With tear-away detailing that melds Hawaiian shirt print and fuzzy green suede, the “Maui Wowie” is a hazy, highly-detailed tropical vacation in sneaker form.

Uppers offer flowing floral Hawaiian shirt print in rich navy blue, contrasted with undyed hemp Swooshes and hemp tongues with an orange tag. Through either natural wear or manual distressing this top layer fades and frays to reveal the shoe’s base: a combination of orange floral print and shaggy green suede that adds the “Wowie” to its rambunctious moniker. Tan laces, a tan collar lining and tan outsoles work with Zoom Air-equipped midsoles to round off the look.

At the time of writing, an official release date for the Nike SB Dunk High “Maui Wowie” has yet to be announced. Owing to its nickname and design it may well be this year’s 4/20 release, though this has yet to be confirmed by the Swoosh. The MSRP is set at $120 USD, and whenever the “Mauie Wowie” does hit retailers it’ll be available at stockists like The Berrics’ Canteen.

Elsewhere in the world of Nike, it was recently revealed that the brand paid zero federal income tax over the past three years.
