A brief warning to sneakerheads: This video of Quavo putting his brand new pair of Civilist x Nike SB Dunks in the microwave could be triggering.

No real need to worry, though. While the shoes are black with white midsoles upon first glance, the upper transforms into a vibrant thermal print when exposed to high levels of heat.

Had To Warm My Dunks Up Cuz They Cold 🥶 Get it?

"Had To Warm My Dunks Up Cuz They Cold," Quavo captioned the clip. The comedian Druski commented with a pun of his own: "S**t finna melt yo damn foot off tryna be cool." Fr!

The high-tech kicks originally arrived late last month, going for $110 at retail. Unsurprisingly, they're now reselling on StockX for more than 8x that price. It's the second time Nike has collaborated with the Berlin-based skate shop since its first release in 2013.

Speaking of heat, Quavo and the Migos recently premiered "Birkin," the likely lead single for their highly-anticipated album Culture III, via the virtual iHeart Festival 2020. (Fan reactions were mixed.)

Huncho later revealed he'll be a team owner in the upcoming Twitch-supported Fan Controlled Football League, "the first professional sports league to put the viewer in the coach's seat and the general manager's office," according to VIBE.

"Where The Culture Calls The Plays Pick The Jerseys And Drafts The Players!" he wrote alongside a hype video for the league.
