Anyone with some X-Mas money left to spend may want to mark December 26 on their calendars. Closing out the wave of nostalgic shoe box releases started in September, Nike SB will be dropping the Nike SB Dunk High “Purple Box” at 12:01AM next Monday.

This particular “Purple Box” Nike SB Dunk High pays homage to a long line of legendary SB sneaker releases delivered in black shoe boxes with purple accents, including the “Dinosaur Jr.”, “Send Help”, and “MF Doom” Dunk editions.

The stylistics of the MF Doom actually loom large over the new drop: The “Purple Box” Nike SB Dunk High features a black suede upper and ostrich leather in the reinforced ollie area around the toe. Purple laces and silver piping complete the classic look, supplemented by a translucent purple outsole, a “shoebox” graphic embossed on the heel, plus a printed insole with Nike SB shoebox-themed artwork.

The Nike SB shoebox re-release series kicked off in September 2016 with the Nike SB Dunk Low Premium “Orange Box”, followed by the “Gray Box” Edition of the Dunk High and the Dunk Low in the style of 2005’s Pink Box.

While most heads in the industry see the Nike SB Dunk High “Purple Box” as the final chapter of the series, others are already rubbing their hands over prospective return of the Gold boxes. Only time will tell…

The Nike SB Purple Box Dunk High releases December 26, 2016 on the Nike SNKRS app with a $130.00 price tag in the US and in Europe at select retailers, including Blowout for EUR 109.90. All images in this article via Blowout.
