Famed Singaporean sneaker customiser SBTG teams up with streetwear label REPUBLIC to create a special collaborative project for Qubic Store – Auckland, New Zealand.
The highlight of the project is a pair of SBTG designed and customized Nike Dunk His – “Rogue Trooper”, incorporating a new brush pattern along with SBTG’s signature style and black highlights to showcase his insane talent with the paintbrush. The “Rogue Trooper” also comes with a special SBTG lace tag, lace patch, and is packaged in a special RoyaleFam drawer box and the infamous SBTG Vine print tissue paper. This is the first time SBTG has collaborated for a custom project with a store in Australasia, and the first time ever a product like this has been offered to NZ sneaker and sneaker art enthusos.
Also included in the pack and to accompany the SBTG 1/12 custom “Rogue Trooper” Dunk Hi, REPUBLIC – Qubic Store’s house brand, has designed and manufactured two apparel pieces – a special issue SBTG X REPUBLIC chiffon shemagh/keffiyeh incorporating SBTG’s “Vine” Camo design (as seen on his Nike SB Dunk Lo in 2006), and a matching tee-shirt print featuring the shemagh pattern constructed out of 150gsm soft combed ringspun cotton. The teeshirt and shemagh will come packaged along with the “Rogue Trooper” custom Nike Dunk Hi. A very small run of the apparel will also be produced for sale outside of the packs, for in-store purchases only.
A total of 12 packs will be made available for sale globally.
The pack will retail for NZ$750 (USD$580) and will drop in store at Qubic Store on Saturday 1st December 2007 for in-store purchases, and will open to international orders on Monday 3rd December 2007 (pending stock availability). Interested international buyers will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure their pack on the Monday.
