The exterior of First Avenue features is marked by black brick walls and 531 stars commemorating past venue performers. This SB Dunk low comes dressed in a mostly black color scheme to match the venue’s facade, with a brick pattern on the quarter overlays. A star is embroidered on the lateral heel, with smaller stars used for the perforations on the toe box. Reflective material is used for the Swoosh and heel panel. The black leather upper fades to purple over time as a tribute to Prince, who performed at the venue nine times in his lifetime. Lastly, the insoles feature a large black and white checkerboard print, inspired by the floors of the venue, as well as an image of a ticket stub from the night the venue opened on April 3, 1970.
The Familia x Nike SB Dunk Low “First Avenue” was created as part of the venue’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2020, though we may see it release in 2021 instead. Grab a first look below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
