The Heaven’s Gate Nike Dunk SB was rumored to drop in August of this year. Inspired by the Heaven’s Gate religious cult that was headed up by Marshall Applewhite and Bonnie Nettles. The cult resulted in 38 dead bodies found in a mansion in San Diego, CA on March 26, 1997. All of which were rocking brand new Nike Cortez at the time of the suicides, dressed in black and white uniforms, and covered with a single purple cloth.
Nike decided not to proceed on the project, most likely because it’s a little on the controversial side, or maybe because the colorway, like the cult’s followers, might have been a little too crazy for the Heaven’s Gate uniforms.
