Can't really go wrong here can you?
We've been hearing whispers about this Brian Anderson collated Nike SB x Anti Hero collection for a while now but the full info just came through so product hounds, sneakerheads and fans of the 18 - get your wallets ready.
“We’re pretty lucky in SB because a lot of our athletes are also artists. One of the best elements of this collaboration, and what makes it truly unique, is that the athletes are the ones — Brian really — who said, ‘We should do this!’" says Jesse Leyva, Senior Creative Director for Nike SB.
The overall idea is fairly simple - Nike SB would produce a range of products not currently manufactured by the Anti Hero skateboard brand (namely footwear and cut and sew apparel) and BA (as both a Nike SB and Anti Hero pro) would connect the dots between both brands.
The resulting collection sees iterations of classic Nike SB staples, the Nike SB Zoom Dunk High Pro and the Nike SB Zoom Blazer Low.
The Nike SB Zoom Dunk High Pro comes in all black and is set off with a gum sole, featuring a bold “BA" on the left heel and the numbers “1" and “8" on the left, covering all bases.
The same number theme also appears on the right back tab of the Blazer, which is grey on gum, with Grant Taylor’s initials emblazoned on the left.
The footwear is complemented by a jersey, jacket and backpack. Anderson’s love of hockey sweaters informed a hybridized football-hockey style for the jersey, while Grant Taylor’s desire for a hooded workwear jacket directed the aesthetic of the coat. In both, the ultimate synergy of brands and athletes is achieved.
The Antihero x Nike SB collection arrives March 16 at select retailers, followed by a March 19 launch on nike.com
