Union LA x Nike Dunk Low in Blue


After going on a hot streak with Jordan Brand by generating Air Jordan 1 collaborations in 2018 and then two sets of Air Jordan 4 team-ups in 2020 and 2021, renowned streetwear boutique Union LA is now gearing up to partner with Nike to lend its touch to the Dunk Low. The shoes first surfaced towards the tail end of November, but now that the kicks’ official images have popped up we have a view all of its intricate details.

For this forthcoming design, Union owner Chris Gibbs and his team opted to stray away from the silhouette’s traditional constructions. Instead of smooth leather uppers, the shoes are devised with full grid-patterned uppers that are adorned with a cool baby blue tone across the forefoot and overlays and a gradient purple hue atop the quarter panels and collars. Contrasting notes arrive by way of the angelic tongues as well as the Union tabs that affix to the quarters and exposed orange stitchings that outline the shoe’s various sections. Union also adds their own Frontman logo atop the button that is embedded into the lateral heels, the left shoe’s insoles and on the forefoot of the icy treading.

The shoe box is cooked up with a special flight-inspired motif, and it houses a special flight ticket that says “Nike In Collaboration With Union.” The shoes are expected to drop sometime in 2022.
