Petoskey stone-themed sneaker being rolled out



GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A skateboard shop’s latest collaboration with Nike has a distinctively Michigan flair.

Grand Rapids-based Premier is set to show off a blue and gray Nike sneaker that features leather embossed with Petoskey stones.

The show is being called the “Petoskey Stone Dunk.”

Premier co-owner Eric Blanding tells the Petoskey News-Review ( ) his store always thought that Michigan’s state stone “would look cool on a shoe.”

Petoskey stones are found in parts of Michigan. Premier plans to roll out the shoe Saturday at its store in Grand Rapids. Nike Inc. is based in Beaverton, Ore.

The “Petoskey Stone Dunk” retails for $104.
