Nike SB is no stranger to controversial releases or extraordinarily rare kicks, but this one might just take the cake. The Heaven’s Gate was so controversial, being inspired by the Heaven’s Gate cult which committed suicide wearing black and white Nike Cortezes, that they were never saw the light of day. Since then Nike SB has released the liquidation bankruptcy, and all that was left of the original design was samples no one ever got to see.
That has all changed as Revive has received the Heaven’s Gate FT sample. The shoe features a mostly black upper that consists of suede and leather with a white swoosh and purple along the upper back heel. In an interesting twist a cool teal lines the tongue, and sock lining. Via: REVIVE.
