Starbucks And Nike Collaborate To Create A Beautiful Pair Of Sneakers

Nike and Starbucks, two of the biggest brands in the world (ranking in at 17 and 67, respectively), have teamed up in order to bring us the next pair of shoes we don’t need but dammit we want.

This isn’t the first time two giants from the food and fashion industry have collaborated, and certainly won’t be the last.

The Nike SB Dunk Low Premium Starbucks edition shoes have a brown suede-looking canvas with subtle, streaky swirls of khaki, made to mimic both the steam coming off of a fresh cup of coffee and the wrinkly, rich brown tone of a handful of coffee beans. The Nike Swoosh is painted in classic white with the standard Starbucks green outline, along with the heel, tongue and base of the shoes.

The shoes are available now for a limited time in select Nike retailers. These shoes, as do many of the shoes in the Nike SB Premium line, retail at $100. Personally, I think the shoes look dope as hell, and I would buy them for the clean-looking color scheme alone. Of course, I would try to get away with calling them the Andes Mints Edition or something, because “Starbucks shoes” is just too much.
