The international convenience store chain is not only popular in the States but extremely popular overseas in Asia in countries like Japan, Taiwan, China and Korea where they are basically their own subculture, with rival brands like Family Mart, Hi-Life and Lawson envying the brand recognition.
An unexpected collaboration for sure, 7-Eleven is riding the Nike SB wave into the upcoming summer months where Big Gulps and slushies will be in high demand. The Dunk Low takes the brand's trademark orange, green and red stripes and translates that onto the silhouette with diagonal color blocking. Also incorporating it into the Nike on the heel tab and the 7-Eleven logo embroidered on the heel. The three colors are also included as extra laces in addition to white.
While there is no word on how the sneakers will be released or when, it's a fun collaboration to look forward to and hopefully celebrate the end of quarantine from COVID-19. Stay tuned for updates as they develop. In related news, Nike SB and artist Yoon Hyup released some collaborative pieces last month.
