Primarily known for its work with Jordan Brand in recent years, Los Angeles-based boutique Union is shifting into Nike Sportswear by reworking one of the category’s hottest models.
Images of a Union x Nike Dunk Low collaboration have surfaced, showcasing a new variation of the model bearing Union’s outdoors-inspired motif. The leaked shoe is delivered in soft blue and purple ripstop nylon, the material consistent with previous Union drops. Contrast stitching, textured Swooshes, UN/LA fabric tags, and Union Frontman logo hits are some of the other features visible in the initial photos.
As of now, neither Nike or Union has confirmed the Dunk Low collab or announced any release information. The expectation is that these will drop sometime in 2022. We’ll continue to keep you posted with updates, new photos, and potential additional colorways moving forward.
UPDATE (01/05): Details behind Union’s anticipated Nike Dunk Low collab have been revealed. Sources have confirmed to Sole Collector that the three-shoe pack celebrates Union’s 30th anniversary with each style inspired by Union store owner Chris Gibbs and his team’s heyday of searching for exclusive sneakers and music. As of now, all three Union x Nike Dunk colorways are slated to release later this year via SNKRS, Union stores and at select retailers for $150 each. Check back soon for updates.
UPDATE (02/01): After teasing the collab with a short film last week, Union has formally unveiled its upcoming Nike Dunk Low collab. The “Passport Pack” nods to Union founder Chris Gibbs’ travels across the world to find exclusive gear, namely Japan-exclusive Dunks. To celebrate this era, the collection features colorways inspired by notable pairs from the early 2000s, updated with ripstop uppers and unfinished stitching.
First to release is the Union x Nike Dunk Low “Pistachio,” which is inspired by the European-exclusive Dunk High of the same name from 2003. This colorway will drop exclusively at Union on Friday, Feb. 11, followed by a release of the remaining two colors in March.
UPDATE (03/21): Union has officially confirmed that the “Argon” Union x Nike Dunk Low from the “Passport Pack” will be released at store.unionlosangeles.com on March 31. Grab an official look at the shoe below.
