The Nike SB sneaker is inspired by the rap trio’s sixth album.
A sample pair of unreleased Nike SB skateboarding sneakers inspired by De La Soul‘s sixth album has surfaced.
Similar to the album cover that inspired it — De La’s AOI: Bionix — the sneaker bears a resemblance to the silver outfits the members are wearing, the leather covering the upper part of the shoe.
This isn’t the first time the rap group and Nike have collaborated. They’ve released two Dunk Highs and two Dunk Lows, all inspired by the trio’s seminal debut album 3 Feet High and Rising.
Earlier this year came news that De La are going to release new music.
Maseo then confirmed that the projects they’re working on with Rock and Premier are the follow-up to And the Anonymous Nobody, and a third installment of the Art Official Intelligence series.
