Nike Is Celebrating “420 Day” WIth This Nike SB Dunk High “Dog Walker”

Alongside upcoming adidas and Air Jordan releases 2019, Nike will release this special SB Dunk High dubbed “Dog Walker” on April 20th, 2019. Unless you are an active participant in cannabis culture, perhaps you are not familiar with the term 420 or the significance of April 20th (4/20). “420” is essentially slang for the consumption of cannabis or marijuana and today, April 20th is celebrated within the cannabis culture as 420 or Weed Day. Some have even claimed that “420” is a police code used when approaching someone smoking marijuana. However, even a lot of cannabis smokers do not know how 420 and April 20 became associated with weed.

The origin of 420’s association with cannabis consumption dates back to 1971 to the San Rafael High School in Marin County, Calif. Five students from the school would convene by their campus’ statue of French chemist Louis Pasteur at 4:20 to smoke weed. 4:20 was the ideal time for them to indulge in some cannabis smoking as their school’s extracurricular activities would conclude by then. The names of those students were Dave Reddix, Jeffrey Noel, Larry Schwartz, Mark Gravich and Steve Capper and they were eventually nicknamed the “Waldos” since they gathered by a wall. 420 ended up becoming their codeword for weed.

Nike has celebrated 420 Day previously too, with colorways like the “Cheech & Chong,” “Skunk” and “White Widow.” This SB Dunk High colorway is nicknamed “Dog Walker” because Dog Walker OG is the name of a potent cannabis strain. Taking a cue from its nickname, this iteration has a canine look with its multicolored uppers entirely covered in pony hair. The side panels are even feature a Dalmatian print, while its Red-colored nylon Nike “Swoosh” logos are meant to resemble a dog’s leash. Furthermore, pictures of dogs can be cover the insoles while a dog poop graphic with the “SB” branding can be spotted over the inner tongue tags.

There do not seem to be any upcoming adidas and Air Jordan releases 2019 that are celebrating 420 Day, but you’ll be able to rock this Nike SB Dunk High “Dog Walker” while smoking weed.

A Leopard Print Covers This Wacko Maria x Nike SB Stefan Janoski

The adidas and Air Jordan releases arriving later this year will include this collaboratively designed Wacko Maria x Nike SB Stefan Janoski. It is the first time that Nike has collaborated with the Japanese streetwear brand. This year, Jordan Brand has released some rather unique iterations of the low-cut, skateboarding sneaker. It all started with a camo-covered iteration and another mid-top variation with fuzzy suede uppers, both of which debuted arrived at retailers in February. A “Golden Beige” and a “Multicolor” iteration hit the shelves last month. More recently, Jordan Brand also released a Premium “Desert Camo” iteration of the SB Stefan Janoski earlier this month.

It was back in 2004 when Atsuhiko Mori and Keiji Ishizuka launched Wacko Maria. Both of them happen to be former J1 League football players and teammates. Before introducing the streetwear label, Atsuhiko and Keiji opened the Rock Steady bar, which is currently the Wacko Maria showroom. Today, Wacko Maria is recognized as a cult brand since it brings together genuine Japanese craftsmanship with inspiration from art, design, film and music. Atsuhiko and Keiji are particularly inspired by American culture, film, music, photography and women. Wacko Maria has its own line of ready-to-wear, contemporary urban apparel featuring classic menswear tailoring as well as other accessories.

As mentioned, this is the first time that Nike and Wacko Maria have teamed up, but it seems that their first collaboration is going to be quite successful. The uppers of the SB Stefan Janoski are made up of suede and as you can see, Wacko Maria has entirely covered it in faded leopard print. However, its inner lining, laces, Nike “Swoosh” logos and tongues are all covered in contrasting Black, while its thick rubber soles are plain White. In addition to the “Nike SB” and “Stefan Janoski” branding, its heels feature Japanese characters and Wacko Maria’s “Guilty Parties” catchphrase can be spotted over the insoles.

Unlike upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019, there is currently no release date for this leopard print-covered Wacko Maria x Nike SB Stefan Janoski, so keep checking back for more updates.
