For those who didn’t get enough satisfaction from the tempting teaser pictures of Royalfam and SBTG’s new Varsity Bones series of Nike Dunks, we are back with detailed looks and pictures of the first drop of the series- Prison Blues. The Prison Blues are created to fill the last compartment of an eight compartment locker filled with seven pairs of original college Nike Dunks gifted to Mark Ong of SBTG in 2008.
The Prison Blues come thoroughly packed with rugged details such as distressed denim featuring repeating prints of the star spangled banner splashed over in white; the edges of the panels are left deliberately unraveled for a worn, unfinished look. The white Swoosh features printed type in black on it and a zipper enclosure keeps the shoes pulled together, while the lace-up panels take a side-step. On the tongue is a number patch that uncannily resembles the number identification patches on prison uniforms. These shoes are finished with uncompromising detail that once again shows SBTG’s dedication to craftsmanship. Prison Blues is set to drop on Aug 9 at 10PM EST, so pen that date down in your iPhone for a pair in time.
