The worlds of cannabis culture and sneaker culture are coalescing more and more these days, as cannabis becomes more mainstream. It’s a beautiful thing, indeed. If you’re based in the 6ix, you’ve probably noticed all the cannabis shops popping up at every street corner. The streetwear shop to weed shop ratio is getting pretty close.
Don’t get me wrong—I’m not hating. The cannabis shops provide the vibes for showing off a fresh pair. Experience tells me sneakerheads have a whole lot in common with the potheads.
One thing is for sure: some of these weed shops have style to spare. Just like sneaker shops, weed shops are a sight to behold with all the THC and CBD products behind the counter. Pot branding is on point, no doubt. And we already know sneaker branding and packaging is beyond lit.
Weed has got variety, just like sneakers. When you think about it, you could find an iconic sneaker out there to match every type of dried flower. There are already several weed-inspired sneaks, like the Nike SB Dunk High “Skunk” or the Nike SB Dunk Low “Green Hemp.”
Let’s face it, weed and sneakers are both dope on their own. But cannabis and sneakers have always had a special bond. When the two unite, they are a special combination.
Let’s get real for a minute: sneaker culture and weed culture are intrinsically linked by their underground nature, and there’s no better way to express your love of sneakers than with a pair of shoes that are dope. If you’re a sneakerhead, the answer is easy: buy some weed, and wear your new kicks to take in the good vibes.
