CANCELLED "Paid In Full" Dunk High Pro SB by Nike SB (Ft. Black Sheep Skate Shop)

Black Sheep released the following image and statement via Instagram on June 11th, 2014.

We are very sorry to announce that, effective immediately, the release of the Black Sheep x Nike SB Dunk High Premium has been cancelled. All unsold pairs have already been returned. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your continued support. We cannot comment any further at this time, so no calls or emails please.

This cancellation is most likely due to the Gucci-inspired print on the shoe. Gucci must have threatened to sue, since Nike doesn’t pay for any licensing prior to creating a design.

Cuz I hope she come back like a sneaker when it launch Get Her Back REMIX by Consequence 6

Sneakers have become a huge thing in fashion — predominantly those made by Nike. In fact, people currently camp out just to be first in line to get new releases.

If you don’t get a shoe when it first drops, there are two things you can do:

  • Pay a ridiculous resale price to get the shoe
  • Wait for it to re-release

The latter only happens occasionally, so there’s a good chance that there won’t be a re-release.

Cons relates this to his situation — this girl is rare and he messed up, missing out on her. The only thing he can do is hope that she’ll come back to him.

It's a war going on outside and we started it A$AP Worldwide Cypher by A$AP Rocky (Ft. ASAP Ferg, ASAP Nast, ASAP Twelvyy & SpaceGhostPurrp)

Based off of the inflection and first few words of this line, it seems as if Twelvy is referring to Prodigy’s opening line from “Survival of the Fittest”

There’s a war going on outside, no man is safe from

This takes the original line up a notch — there’s not only a war outside, but the A$AP MOB is to blame for it.

The box is representative of a classic boom box — symbolic in the aspect that the boom box was an iconic part of the hip-hop culture.

Black Sheep collaborated with Fully Laced, a clothing company that specializes in shoelaces, for these bonuses. The extra laces come in white, grey, and green/red — all having gold lace tips that compliment the color scheme on the shoe perfectly.

The lace locks resemble rope chains — identical to those worn on the Paid in Full cover.

If this shoe were a song, the crown above the traditional Nike SB logo would be a double entendre.

Black Sheep Skate Shop is located in Charlotte, North Carolina — the Queen City. This crown is actually the official logo of the city, showing up on legal documents, major street signs, etc.

Similar to Black Sheep representing the Queen City, Eric B is from Queens, New York.
