Drip Like Melted Ice Cream With These Ben & Jerry's X Nike Collab Kicks

Vermont-based ice cream giant Ben & Jerry’s is no stranger to collaborations. In 1997, they approached the band Phish with an idea for an ice cream team-up - both were from Vermont and had risen up in the late 80s, plus, they were interested in many of the same causes, so it felt like a natural partnership. Phish drummer Jon Fishman saw the success of Newman’s Own and went ahead with the idea, giving all their share to environmental causes.
Since then, Ben & Jerry's banded together on flavors with late-night hosts Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon, video streaming service Netflix, and they can now include Nike to their long list of collaborators.
“Chunky Dunky” are low dunks released under Nike’s skateboarding line SB. The sneaks feature a color palette inspired by Ben & Jerry’s iconic pints, including the cow print with a hide texture similar to the pattern found on the pint lids. The swoosh sports a slow melt in bright yellow, and the inside features a tie-dye pattern, while the shoes come packaged in Hulk-sized cartons inspired by Ben & Jerry’s pint containers.
This is a limited edition set, so if you want to snag a pair from Nike, get a Benjamin ready and hit up sneaker shops starting May 23rd, or when they launch on the SNKRS app May 26th.
