Featuring wear-away paint to reveal team colors.
Following up their collaborative capsule from back in September before the season began, the NBA and Nike SB are teaming up once again to reveal a set of Dunks inspired by specific NBA franchises. Kickstarting this co-created collection will be a Dunk High that comes inspired by the former home of LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Like the Bulls-themed Bruin Low and Nuggets-inspired Blazer Low that are set to eventually join this pair, the “Cavaliers” Dunk High features a rub-off paint treatment reminiscent of 2014’s “Lance Mountain” Air Jordan 1s.
The Dunk High starts with a black base which fades away with abrasion—whether it be from actually skating in them or wiping it away with alcohol—to reveal Cavs colors underneath, namely a red-based upper with a yellow Swoosh.
This NBA x Nike SB Dunk High is set to drop Monday, Jan. 21 exclusively from skate shops.
