If you’ve been following us on Twitter, or are a fan of our Facebook Page, then you caught an exclusive sneak peak of our recent collaboration with Spitfire Wheels earlier this week. Well, today we are proud to present a closer look at the Limited Edition Black Sheep x Spitfire Wheels.

You know that Spitfire is the #1 wheel brand in the world and nearly everyone at the shop has been riding them for years, so it was only right for Black Sheep to partner up with them for our own Limited Edition version.

Our good friend and resident Art Director, Richie McCorkle collaborated with us closely on the graphic design of the the wheels, and we went through many versions until we got it right.

We chose a clean and classic two-sided design composed of Black, Gold, and Silver. A single wheel of the pack features a reverse black print on both sides and represents the “Black Sheep” of the four wheels. The “Black Sheep wheel” is also highlighted by a repeating crown pattern to represent our very own Queen City.

The wheels also feature our “O.G. Black Sheep logo” and additional custom labeling including the North Carolina state mottoEsse Quam Videri which means “To Be Rather Than To Seem.”

To top it all off, the Black Sheep x Spitfire wheels are certified F-1 Street Burner Urethane, Spitfire’s exclusive flatspot resistant urethane that grips when you need it, provides a controlled slide when you want it, and is specially formulated to withstand any street terrain.

These are instant classics that won’t last long, so come by and grab your set today, or buy them in our online shop.

The exterior wrap includes side embossed details of Black Sheep X Nike SB logos, as well as, special die cut wolf “claw rips” on the back. The die cut “claw rip” holes offer a subtle preview of the WISC concept with actual glimpse of the hidden graphics featured on the shoe box within.

Gloss varnish accents over matte finish exterior completes the design with subtle black on black graphic elements featuring Nike SB logo emblazoned on front panel and hidden Black Sheep seal on opposite rear panel inscribed with the North Carolina state motto — “Esse Quam Videri,” a Latin phrase meaning, “To be, rather than to seem.”

The inner shoe box slides out to reveal the image of a growling Wolf with sharp fangs and intense, red eyes featuring a familiar glint detail. Additional highlights include, the Black Sheep X Nike SB logos in red on the side with back of the box featuring a bold graphic of iconic sole footprints printed in “blood” red.

Notably, the “WOLF PACK” edition shoe box is the first of its kind to utilize an Augmented Reality app, available for free download, that allows users to view special interactive audio and video content when the shoe box is scanned with a mobile device. Special “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” content including animation of the Wolf face graphic moving and audio of it growling as well as popup videos of the teaser commercial and skate clips in the shoe are viewable via the special interactive box top and bottom. A link to an audio mixtape and additional special features will also be accessible by scanning the packaging as well.
