All the Information: Grateful Dead Bears x Nike SB Dunk Collection

Update 31.07.2020

After the Grateful Dead Bears x Nike SB Dunk Low "Orange" has already been released exclusively at FTC Skateboarding in San Francisco on July 18th, the official pictures of Nike are now out. Nevertheless, it's not clear if the sneakers were planned for a much bigger release. But most of us are probably hoping for a drop at Nike or selected retailers.

Update 23.07.2020

Friends, it is finally happening! The green and yellow Grateful Dead Bears x Nike SB Dunk Low release tomorrow in the Nike SNKRS app at 08:00 AM. Good luck! 🤞

Update 14.07.2020

Leaks, leaks, leaks... In the last three months, we may have gotten more leaks than we'd like to. But now, we can finally rest and turn to the next chapter. Nike and the Grateful Dead are launching their big collection. The first pictures have been uploaded recently, so the release should be just around the corner.

The official pics of the "Green" and "Yellow" are shown here, but as for the "Orange”, it seems to be taking some time. Each model is painted in its matching theme and comes with a plush upper. Furthermore, the soles have the same colour, whereas in the last leaks, we’ve seen the "Orange" have a white midsole. Will this change in the near future?   

Update 16.06.2020

Check out these on-feet pictures of the Grateful Dead x Nike SB Dunk Low "Yellow Bear". The strong yellow and the light blue look just too sick. And, the padded tongue also has a secret pocket. In it, you can hide money or whatever. Unfortunately, the release date has not been mentioned yet. But, most people are probably already assuming an L.

The Nike SB Dunk Low line has been revitalized with some impressive iterations in the recent months. Among the biggest releases are definitely the Travis Scott x Nike Dunk and the Ben & Jerry's x Nike Dunk. Next, there could be a new great pack about to reach us.

With Grateful Dead, Nike aims to deliver a bigger pack. To date, pictures of a green and orange version have already appeared. And now, the next pictures of a yellow version will be online soon.

This pair uses the same aesthetic and comes with a plush upper and subtle colour hits. The whole upper is in yellow and covered with black outlines, while the yellow bear dances on the blue tongue tag.

Nike SB expands its Dunk line with further iterations and the biggest releases probably still lie ahead. A few hours ago, for example, the Ben & Jerry's x Nike SB Dunk Low "Chunky Dunky" was finally released. Furthermore, many are probably still waiting for the official confirmation of the green Grateful Dead x Nike SB Dunk Low.

On top of that, there is news about an orange Grateful Dead x Nike SB Dunk Low. The collab is already one of the most anticipated ones from Nike this year. The famous dancing bears of Grateful Dead are the ultimate symbol of the rock band and are now combined with the Swoosh.

The first version was already expected to have several editions and these new pictures just might confirm this assumption. The orange/green Grateful Dead x Nike SB Dunk Low comes with a plush aesthetic and a modified sole. This pair also features a white midsole and a rubber-like outsole.

Update 11.05.2020

The Grateful Dead-inspired edition is getting closer and closer. We now have the latest pictures of the bright green sneakers. The Grateful Dead x Nike SB Dunk Low embodies the dancing green bear from the rock band. Furry textures and hairy suede are dyed green and alternate with blue insignia.

The tongue only further confirms the collab. The green bear with the blue collar replaces the Nike logo and looks at the wild toe box. Here, you can take a look at the upcoming sneakers. The Grateful Dead x Nike SB Dunk Low will probably appear soon at Nike and selected retailers.

Nike SB continues to expand its reach with new iterations. It's no wonder that the label will also hit the music industry at some point. With the latest release, Nike SB gets the attention of the Grateful Dead fans.

Rumour has it that this colourful Dunk Low is supposed to be a tribute to the Grateful Dead Bears—a series of dancing bears seen on the back of the album, "History of the Grateful Dead, Volume One "Bear's Choice" in 1973. Shortly after the release, the colourful bears became the band's trademark.

The Nike SB Dunk Low could be a perfect image of the green bear. A fake green fur and a jagged blue Swoosh remind us of the collar of the funny bear. On the back and on the outsole, you can also see a similar pattern.

Could More Nike SB Dunk Lows "Grateful Dead Bears" Drop?

There were five bears on the album. So one could expect even more iterations. Unfortunately, this sneaker has no release info yet. We will definitely stay on it and keep you up to date.
