Originally intended to be Nike SB’s traditional April 20th release in 2020, the infamous “Strawberry Cough” release of the Dunk High had been indefinitely postponed since it first came to light early last year. And with 2021’s 420 holiday also come and gone, a release this year seemed rather unlikely. However, official images of the weed-inspired sneaker have surfaced, suggesting that a release for this mythical pair could be looming.
A quick refresher: the forefoot of the Dunk is colored in red, with the overlays and mid-panel dimpled with touches of yellow to mimic the exterior seeds of the fruit. The Swoosh, heel, and ankle are covered in the standard hairy green suede to replicate the texture and visuals of weed, while a mascot of a coughing strawberry is featured on the heel and on the insoles. A soft heel-tab is also added, presumably to represent the leafy part of the head.
The appearance of Nike official images is by no means a confirmation of a release, but this is the most favorable developments yet. See the official photos ahead and stay tuned for updates.
