Detailed images of the Familia x Nike SB Dunk Low “First Avenue” are now featured as the collaborative model by the Minneapolis-based skate shop is expected to release soon. Intended to commemorate the city’s live music venue located at 701 First Avenue North, the SB Dunk dons stealthy makeup with a brickwork detailing on the quarter overlays as a tribute to the building’s painted brick exterior. Additionally, a star perforated toe box symbolizes the 500 past venue performers covering the building.

Other notable elements consist of 3M reflective Swooshes and heels, wear-away uppers that reveal the color purple to match the laces as an homage to the venue’s most famous performer Prince, who was also from Minneapolis. Finally, special co-branded insoles that incorporate the venue’s signature checkerboard floor, and showcases the ticket to their first live show on April 3rd, 1970 — completes the theme nicely.

Expect the Familia x Nike SB Dunk Low “First Avenue” to debut at select Nike SB stockists and online soon. Stay tuned for the official release date. Always keep it locked to KicksOnFire for the latest in sneaker news, release dates and where to purchase your favorite kicks.
