Few relationships in sneakers have been as coveted as Medicom Toy and Nike SB. Originally launched in 2004, Medicom Toy x Nike SB has seen a number of high profile sneakers and collectables released in extremely limited quantities. In recent years, Nike SB x Medicom Toy has certainly slowed down. Over the past 16 years, just five sneakers have released, showing the Quickstrike nature of each release. Now, it looks like we could be seeing a sixth in 2020.
Last month, we reported that a Medicom Toy x Nike SB collaboration was in the works. Whilst neither party confirmed the news, multiple sources began to discuss the possibility of a collaboration. Thankfully, Medicom Toy has now officially confirmed the collab, even including a release date to look out for. As you can probably imagine, this is going to be one of the most hyped drops of the month.
Comprised in black fuzzy faux fur, the upcoming Medicom Toy x Nike SB Dunk Low is already looking pretty slick. A subtle cream heel tab adds a splash of colour, whilst a crisp white midsole and grey outsole keeps things fairly neutral. Subtle co-branding can be seen in various places, with the tongue and heel bearing the BE@RBRICK logo. Launching in full family sizing, this is going to be a serious cop for any sneakerhead.
Just like previous Nike SB x Medicom Toy collaborations, a BE@RBRICK will also be releasing alongside the sneakers. The upcoming Nike SB BE@RBRICK is subtle, using a glossy black base with white hands. On closer inspection, stitch lines are visible on the ear and midsection, with the outline of a shoe featuring on the chest. “Nike SB” is seen on the head, bringing this collaborative collectable to a close. Dropping 100%, 400% and 1000% sizes, you can expect these BE@RBRICKs to sell out instantly.
If you like the look of the upcoming Medicom Toy x Nike SB collection, then there’s good news. The entire collection will drop on August 22nd, with prices being made available on the day. Check out the official images below and let us know if you’ll cop.
