Hippies and psychedelic trippers of the ’60s weren’t necessarily skateboarding, but their counterculture ethos makes them something of kindred spirits with the skateboarding scene of the ’80s and ’90s. For the Nike SB Tripper Pack, the Swoosh finds common ground between the two groups.
Drawing inspiration from the concert posters and iconic music of late-60s San Francisco, the Nike SB Tripper Pack comprises a Dunk and a Stefan Janoski Max, each hit with a funky, colorful lyric pattern that deftly evokes the era’s psychedelic rock. The iridescent rainbow threading practically glows, while contrast abstract script delivers a dark contrast.
The good vibes drop September 1, priced at $120 a pop. Jefferson Airplane would be proud.
