Best 420 Sneakers Of All Time

420 is a highly celebrated holiday among cannabis enthusiasts worldwide, though more than just stoners like to partake in the festivities annually. It has become a popular occasion for sneaker brands to release limited edition kicks that pay homage to the stoner culture, from stash pockets to weed-inspired colorways. With the 420 holiday fast approaching, we decided to look back at the best 420-inspired sneakers. These sneakers feature design elements that take inspiration from marijuana, ranging from classic models to collaborations with pop culture icons. So whether you are a cannabis connoisseur or appreciate a good pair of sneakers, these shoes will prepare you to celebrate 420 (even if you don’t inhale.)

Nike SB Dunk High “Skunk”

Released in 2010, the Nike SB Dunk High “Skunk” was one of the most hyped releases of the year. A nod to the prevalent strain of cannabis, a mix of various shades of green cover the hairy suede upper. Purple accents are found via the Swoosh on the sides and outsole, completing the weed-based design.

Nike SB Dunk High “420”

Also known as the “Reverse Skunk,” the Nike SB Dunk High "420" took inspiration from 2010s release and flipped the script. A hairy suede upper in various shades of purple is accented by green hits found via the Swoosh on the sides, back heel pull tab, tongue tag, and outsole. This pair is unique because it was limited to 420 pairs, individually numbered.

Nike SB Dunk High “Dog Walker”

This Nike SB Dunk High is for all you dog lovers out there. Dubbed the “Dog Walker” edition, these SBs feature a multi-colored upper inspired by man’s best friend. Faux dog hair patterns dress most of the sneaker, with hairy green suede representing grass. The Swoosh on the sides mimics a leash, while the hit of brown on the translucent outsole represents stepping in dog poop.

Nike SB Dunk Low “Hemp” Pack

A part of Nike SB’s “Silver Box” era, the “Hemp” Pack features three colorways of the SB Dunk Low. Originally released in 2004 to coincide with 420, each pair featured an upper entirely made of hemp. Accent colors came in “Red Mahogany,” “Cascade Blue,” and “Bonsai,” while a translucent gum midsole added some extra flare. While all three pairs were skate shop exclusives, the “Bonsai” colorway was limited to 420 pairs and is the rarest from the set.

Nike SB Dunk High “Cheech & Chong”

Nike Skateboarding paid tribute to one of Weed's most prolific duos, Cheech & Chong. Inspired by their style, a stash pocket is found behind the tongue, red bandana print detailing, and as the sneaker gets worn, the white canvas upper reveals a green underlay.

Nike SB Dunk Mid “White Widow”

Todd Bratrud designed the Nike SB Dunk Mid “White Widow," combining spiders and marijuana. These SBs sport a hairy suede upper, representing the arachnid and the weed strain. Custom details via the hourglass-shaped design on the bottom of the outsole, printed insoles with art from Bratrud, and a stash pocket complete the look.

Run The Jewels x Nike SB Dunk Pack

In celebration of sharing a birthday with the 420 holiday, Nike SB honored Killer Mike, one half of the rap group, Run The Jewels, with two SB Dunks. The high-top version sports a pink and black theme, while the low-top comes blue-based. Both pairs feature custom laces dubraes and RTJ branding on the inside tongue tag and insoles.

South Park x adidas Campus 80s “Towelie”

The South Park x adidas Campus 80s "Towelie" sneaker is a tribute to the stoner character Towelie from the iconic cartoon series. This sneaker features stash pockets for your weed, and the interior of the tongue is decorated with Towelie's catchphrase, "Don't forget to bring a towel." The tongue tag features Towelie's eyes, which turn bloodshot red under UV light.

Bait x adidas Stan Smith Vulc “Happy”

The Bait x adidas Stan Smith Vulc "Happy" draws inspiration from cannabis with a black graphic covering the grey hemp upper. The graphic features smiley faces, and the heel tab comes in a hairy green suede. The tag below the branding detail says "HIIIGH."

adidas Samba OG “420”

The adidas Samba OG "420" is an excellent sneaker for stoners. The premium suede upper comes in purple and grey and features a hidden stash pocket. The semi-translucent rubber outsole hosts "4/20" text, furthering the theme.

Reebok Classic Leather “Morning Sessions”

The Reebok Classic Leather "Morning Sessions" sneaker takes a different approach to pay homage to cannabis than other sneakers on this list—the gradient leather upper mimics a sunrise, with blue hues nodding to the sky. The tongue features eye graphics, and the branding window on the midfoot mimics the look of a stoner's eye after lighting up. The heel tab reads "Good Morning," split between the left and right sneakers. This sneaker is also limited to 500 pairs.

Nike SB Dunk Low “Intergalactic”

This Nike SB Dunk Low is literally out of this world. Nicknamed the “Intergalactic” edition, these SBs feature a similar makeup to the “Space Jam” pair that was released in 2011. Featuring an all-black upper, cordura mesh underlays are paired with patent leather overlays with an iridescent galaxy print. The Rasta-colored branding on the insoles is the only nod to 420 on this pair.

Nike SB Dunk Low 420 (2016)

The Nike SB Dunk Low 420, released in 2016, is constructed with a hemp upper. This standard SB Dunk Low features a thick tongue and Zoom Air on the insole, with a black and tan combo dressing the hemp, mesh, and leather.

adidas ZX 1000 “420”

The adidas ZX 1000 "420" sneaker features a breathable mesh and shaggy suede upper. It mimics a cannabis flower with its hairy finish and dark green hue. The purple hits accentuate the earthy tone, and the sneaker has a terry cloth sockliner, finished off by a vintage midsole.

Nike SB Dunk High “Maui Wowie”

Inspired by the island of Hawaii, the Nike SB Dunk High “Maui Wowie” was released in April 2021. The all-over floral print upper has hidden layers of red and green. Continuing the weed theme, a hidden stash pocket is inside the tongue. Tying everything together is the custom-printed insoles.

adidas Campus 80s “Best Buds”

The adidas Campus 80s "Best Buds" sneaker is one of this list's more recent 420 entries. It features a brown paper upper that covers a shaggy green suede below. The trippy Trefoil logo lands on the insole in a tie-dye finish, covering the tongue's lining and the sneaker's interior. The light green hits on the laces and sockliner complete the look.

Nike SB Dunk Low “Fruit Pack”

The Nike SB Dunk "Fruit Pack" consists of four sneakers - three SB Dunk Lows and one SB Dunk High - each in a fruit-inspired colorway. The Blue Raspberry, Green Apple, Cherry, and Pineapple (the only Dunk High) all feature color schemes mimicking each respective fruit. Trippy graphics anthropomorphizing the fruit are placed on the reverse of the tongue, showcasing before and after getting high.

Sneaker Freaker x Saucony Grid SD “Kushwacker”

A follow-up to the duo’s “Bushwacker” collaboration that celebrated Sneaker Freaker’s 10th Anniversary, the Australian-based publication and Saucony came together in 2015 to create a weed-inspired Saucony Grid SD. Purple haze, a popular weed strain, inspires the purple hits near the toe, tongue, and heel. The rest of the model uses shades of black, with Saucony’s logo on the midfoot coming in tan.

Nike SB Dunk High “Strawberry Cough”

A controversial pair when it was first seen, the Nike SB Dunk High “Strawberry Cough” was shelved for over a year due to its unfortunate timing with the global pandemic that struck the world in 2020. Inspired by the popular marijuana strain, Nike SB mimics an actual strawberry with textured overlays and green hits near the collar. The most direct nod to cannabis comes in the form of the anthropomorphized strawberry coughing found on the lateral heel and via the insole.

Nike Air Max 1 “Treeline”

Tinker Hatfield’s classic Air Max 1 joined the stoner celebration of 4/20 in 2021 with the “Treeline” colorway. Earthy shades appear on the mesh toebox and collar with green and purple, colors often found on cannabis flowers, take over the mudguard, heel, and Swoosh. Many connect this pair to 4/20 because its color scheme is similar to a previously mentioned pair on this list.

Vans “Positive Vibrations” Pack

This overt nod to marijuana from Vans features three sneakers, a Sk8-Hi, Authentic, and Old Skool. All three feature a mix of tan hemp on the upper with an orange Vans Sidestripe. Across the upper sits a multi-color array of embroidered cannabis leaves, while the laces and soles come in a creamy finish.

Vans “Palm Leaf” Pack

With its connection to California and skateboarding, it only makes sense for Vans to nod to marijuana more than other brands. The label has worked on a wide array of “Palm Leaf” sneakers for nearly a decade. These pairs featured various colorways hosting the “palm leaf” (close enough to cannabis leaves).

Reebok “420” Pack (2023)

Taking over three silhouettes, the Reebok Classic Leather, Reebok Beatnik, and Reebok Pump Twilight Zone are trippy, 4/20-friendly color schemes. Reebok’s “420” Pack in 2023 is a surefire way to celebrate the stoner-friendly holiday, featuring darker tones mixed with multi-materials and a redesigned Vector logo that resembles a pot leaf.

Supra S1W “Tree Camo”

Lil Wayne teamed up with Supra back in the early 2010s to produce a three-pack of sneakers, one of which drew inspiration from his love for cannabis. A camo-like pattern with leafy greens covers the sneaker, while orange hits accent branding details and the sole unit below.

Diamond Supply Co Diamond Cuts “Green Weed Camo”

Nicky Diamonds and his Diamond Supply Co may be most famous in the sneaker space for collaborating with Nike SB, though the brand does carry its own inline sneaker designs. Taking its inspiration from Vans, the Diamond Cuts silhouette was dressed in a weed-themed colorway that featured a mixture of tree leaves and marijuana leaves.

HUF Hupper “420” Pack

Connected to the skate scene and West Coast, HUF is no stranger to marijuana and released a pack of “420” inspired pieces in 2011. The Huf Hupper, a high-top silhouette reminiscent of a Converse All-Star and Vans Sk8-Hi, stuck to a traditional green-covered color scheme to nod to cannabis. Accompanying the kicks were three sets of socks covered in marijuana leaves.

Raised By Wolves x Saucony Aya “Asphalt Jungle”

Though not an overt nod to marijuana, the Raised By Wolves x Saucony Aya “Asphalt Jungle” and its multi-color accents deserve a spot on this list for more than just a color scheme or weed graphic. Incorporated into the design of the tongue is a stash pocket to hide, well… your dime bags.

C1rca Muska CM901

Chad Muska’s signature silhouette, the C1rca Muska CM901, was a hit amongst skateboarders and teenagers of the early 2000s. On top of its chunky, skate-ready aesthetic, Muska included a stash pocket that, though they couldn’t market at the time, was a way to carry around some bud and prevent you from losing track of it.

Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 Retro “Olive & British Khaki”

Travis Scott needs no introduction regarding his collaborations with Jordan Brand. The superstar rapper, producer, and designer dropped two 420-friendly renditions of the Air Jordan 6 with the “Olive” and “British Khaki” colorways. Though there isn’t a direct reference to weed, the color scheme of the “Olive” pair, the hairy suede on the “British Khaki,” and the inclusion of a stash pocket make these two sneakers great pairs to spark up in.

Todd Snyder x Vans “The Dirty Martini” Pack

Even though it is marketed as a collection inspired by the classic cocktail, Todd Synder and Vans’ “The Dirty Martini” Pack is an obvious nod to marijuana. Both the Vans Slip-On 98 DX and Lace-Up 73 DX are covered in olive green hues, and they release on 4/20.
