Ben & Jerry’s ‘Chunky Dunky’ Nike SB Dunk Low Gets Official Release Date
This tasty collab is coming soon to a skate shop near you.
The wait is over. Coming very soon: Ben & Jerry’s x Nike SB Dunk Low, a.k.a. the “Chunky Dunky.”
Take a look at the images and the Chunky Dunkys are pretty self-explanatory to anyone who has been lucky enough to binge on B&J’s. They celebrate the funky ice cream company’s legacy flavor “Chunky Monkey”—banana ice cream with fudge chunks and nuts—and the brand’s overall legacy as a product of the bucolic backfields of beautiful Vermont.
Visually, the upper could’ve been made from Chunky Monkey cartons. It is made, however, from pony hair colored like Ben & Jerry’s cow mascot and accented with melting yellow swoosh stripes.
The tongue, collar and heel on the Chunky Dunky are signature Ben & Jerry’s, sporting the legend “Chunky Dunky” in the font fans of the treat are familiar with. Further keeping with the hippie-dippie spirit that originally infused the brand, insoles and liners are colorful tie-dye, with a white midsole that offsets the grass-green soles.
The Chunky Dunky will hit skate shop shelves beginning May 23. Nike will then make them available via Nike SNKRS on May 26. The retail price is a reasonable $100.
