The new high-tops from Nike SB and the Black Sheep Skate Shop have an original design that's sure to add a sense of luxury to casual ensembles.

The sneakers boast a clean-looking gray, black, white and red colorway, which gives them a minimalist appearance that's simultaneously statement-worthy. Nike's branding is included in its usual fashion on the sides of the high-tops, however this time the iconic Swoosh logo comes with the image of sharp carnivorous teeth.

As Highsnobiety reports, the overall design for the Nike SB and Black Sheep Skate Shop sneakers was inspired by the idea of a "wolf in sheep's clothing." This explains the coupling of the soft gray suede uppers with the image of teeth, as well as the scarlet soles of the sneakers which can also be linked back to the wolf's perceived violence.
