Yep. You read that right. Nike is making a shoe and naming it after Cheech and Chong. It is to be a skateboarding shoe. They will call it Nike SB Dunk High 420 Cheech & Chong and only make 1,000. Who is buying a pair? I bet they will cost a small fortune


What do Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and Serena Williams have in common with Cheech & Chong?

All have had the honor of having a shoe named after them by Nike, the athletic apparel giant.

That’s right. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, the pot-smoking comedy duo of the 1970s and '80s, will be paid homage with an eponymous sneaker due out April 20, the unofficial international holiday for marijuana tokers.

The skateboarding shoe, officially called the Nike SB Dunk High 420 Cheech & Chong, will feature a red heel panel, an icy translucent outsole and "marijuana-green" laces, according to the website sneakerobsession.com. Only 1,000 pairs will be made.

The left sneaker represents Chong with graphics resembling his signature red bandana, while the right sneaker honors Cheech, with a graphic representing his signature red skullcap, wrote Joseph Karlovich, owner and editor of sneakerobsession, a website that covers the sneaker subculture.

Cheech & Chong were cult favorites who starred in stoner movies including 1978's “Up in Smoke. ” Marin, 64, and Chong, 72, have made sporadic efforts to regain their former glory with reunion tours and recently appeared as voice actors playing themselves on an episode of "The Simpsons."

I wish those two would get together and make one more movie.

It's a shame they are only making a 1,000 pairs of those shoes. That will make them almost impossible to get your hands on a pair of them.

What are the odds that somebody is going to try and smoke the shoe?

At a smoke shop up here, they had a pair of Jordans that were really a Hookah, with the shoestrings being the hoses you smoke out of. Pretty neat actually.
