Concepts Raffling Nike SB Dunk Low 'Lobster' Colabs to Support BLM
Boston retailer Concepts have announced a special series of sneaker raffles in support of Black Lives Matter, kicking things off with their limited edition Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Purple Lobster’ and ‘Green Lobster’ collaborations. Concepts’ exclusive archived sneakers will be raffled during the series, with 100 per cent of proceeds donated to various BLM organisations.
In early June, the Concepts Boylston Street flagship store in Boston was affected by George Floyd protests. They immediately released a statement clarifying that, despite the damages, they’re continuing to support the community. The sneaker raffle is part of Concepts’ wider community plan to take action against racial injustice, and to support their communities in New York, Boston, and beyond.
Released in 2018, the ‘Purple Lobster’ and ‘Green Lobster’ have played a hand in kicking off the contemporary Dunk resurgence. They both dropped in limited numbers, and continue to fetch aftermarket prices exceeding $1000.
The raffle opens on July 13, with entries closing a week later. You can enter and show your support here. Good luck!
