And what’s the celebration all about? We’ll answer these questions and a lil bit more right now! But if you ain’t here just for this and wanna check out more kicks, our blog has all you need. Anything for our shitfam, especially when it’s all about the drip!


Nike Dunk Low Setsubun Devil: Don’t Throw Beans at This One!

Kinda sounds like gibberish if you don’t know what’s up, so we’ll let you in on it right now. Setsubun is a Japanese festival that people celebrate on February 2, 3, or 4. It celebrates the start of Spring according to the old Japanese calendar (lunar calendar). It’s not a national holiday, but that doesn’t stop people from celebratin’! So during this festival, people perform rituals to ward off evil spirits. One of these rituals is Mameki, aka bean-throwing to ward off the spirits.

So, Japanese people mainly celebrate the day by eating and throwing dry soybeans at doors or at people dressed as demons, all while chanting Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi! (Demons out! Good fortune in!). Embracing the Setsubun tradition also includes eating the very same number as your age plus one, which is said to ensure good health!

It’s also a common belief that there’s a certain lucky direction you should face while eating your ehomaki (a type of sushi rolls eaten on this holiday). And this year’s direction was South-Southeast. 

The Looks of It

Why are we telling you this? Of course, we love some extra cultural knowledge, but we love kicks too! The new Setsubun Dunks are about the celebration we just told you about. But we totally wouldn’t wanna throw beans at these babies because they look lit as heck! The brown and purple color-blocking is pretty cool and kinda reminds us of Atmos’ 2003 Viotech Air Max 1. But what takes the cake is the cool insole design and swoosh-horned ogre on the side of the upper. The insoles feature the artwork “Kintoki Throwing Beans at Fleeing Demons” from the late 1700s.


Release Deets

Nike Dunk Low Setsubun was previously set to drop on February 2022. But sneakerheads were let down when February came and went with no signs of these dope pairs. In fact, Nike postponed this release for a whole year! But worry no more, as they’re finally dropping this month peeps! So, the new Setsubun Dunks will drop on April 11, 2023, for $110. And let’s just say, although it’s never a bad idea to catch a Dunk, these babies are totally worth the money. Because they’re currently reselling for an average of $204 on the aftermarket! So cop ‘em in bulk and pocket that good money! Who knows, maybe these are the kicks that will finally get you into the shoe reselling business!

Nike Dunk Low Setsubun Devil Calls for a Nike Bot!

If you’re diggin’ this pair you should keep an eye on SNKRS drops. But you’ll definitely need a strong Nike bot for this. It’s not an easy thing to score a W on hot releases, but when you have the right proxies and accounts, you can do it! You gotta stay connected too because the botting industry is also about the community. So, find the best cook group out there and you’ll be fine fam! Just remember, it ain’t always sunshine everywhere! Good luck!
