It’s been a long time since Nike SB used the Dunk to pay respect to the state of Hawaii, but that will be changing soon if this unreleased pair is any indication.
Images from @yankeekicks show a new Nike SB Dunk High said to be nicknamed “Hawaii.” The pair uses a Sail/Blue/GreenAqua colorway and features multicolor a Hawaiian print across the entire upper. Hemp material on the tongue and Swoosh logo is reminiscent of the woven bamboo paneling used on 2004’s “Aloha” collaboration with Kicks Hawaii.
Other past Hawaii-themed Dunks include the volcano-inspired SB Dunk Low Premium “Hawaii” from 2006.
There’s currently no confirmed release date for the Nike SB Dunk High “Hawaii,” but it should be coming soon.
UPDATE (04/08): @Yankeekicks shares a closer look at the upcoming “Hawaii” SB Dunk High along and revealed that this pair is actually dropping in celebration of 4/20 as seen with the tearaway green suede and fiery orange hidden panels. As of now, this pair is slated to release at select Nike SB stockists on April 20, but that has not been confirmed by the brand.
UPDATE (04/09): SNKRS has confirmed the release of the “Hawaii” Nike SB Dunk High Pro, pointing out details such as the wear-away floral print that reveals a shaggy green suede underlayer, as well as the hidden stash pocket, but strays away from any language that actually ties the shoe to 4/20. The shoe will release on Apr. 23 for $120 via Draw on the app.
