As beloved as their music is, the Grateful Dead’s true legacy might be the huge number of important cultural artifacts they’ve spawned—Cherry Garcia, the 1992 Lithuanian men’s Olympic Basketball Team, and now the fuzziest Nike sneakers that money can buy.

Inspired by the band’s famous dancing bear, these Grateful Dead SB Dunk Lows don’t hide their influence. The sneaker’s upper is covered in faux fur; the Swoosh has a perforated edge, like the bear’s collar; the bear’s logo even graces the tongue. All three of the shoe’s colorways retail for $110 and will be released over the next 10 days. On July 18th, you’ll be able to buy the orange ones on the FTC website; on July 24th, the yellows will hit the SNKRS app while the greens will only be available in select skate shops.
