Bandai x Nike SB Dunk High 'Gundam' Colourways Unveiled for Tokyo Olympics

Nike SB are releasing a slew of collaborations to celebrate the Tokyo Olympics, and these much-talked-about Dunk High colourways inspired by iconic Japanese mecha-robot franchise Gundam will join the festivities. A project alongside toy maker Bandai, one of the colourways is based off the '02 Banshee' from the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn novel, while the other nods to its brother unit, the 'RX-0 Unicorn'. Both have been officially unveiled!

Making use of a creamy white base, the latter's upper is decorated with various details referencing the Gundam’s suit. The red highlights of the robot are mimicked with contrasting piping, stitching and laces, while the unicorn logo in the same hue is seen on the lateral sides toward the heel. There's black on the tongue, eyelet and rear of the ankle collar, with mecha-like details adding a unique aesthetic to the toe box. Providing a focal point of the sneaker is the redesigned side Swoosh in yellow, referencing the Gundam's V-Fin antennas. Down below, a white midsole and black outsole provide the finishing touches.,

The complementary colourway is a bolder look, making use of a metallic black/grey base with an upper decorated with various details referencing the 02 Banshee suit. The bright orange highlights of the robot are mimicked with contrasting piping, stitching and laces, while the 'UC Project' unicorn logo in the same hue is seen on the lateral sides toward the heel. There's black on the tongue and rear of the ankle collar, with mecha-like details adding a unique aesthetic to the toe box. Providing a focal point of the sneaker is the redesigned, removable side Swoosh in gold, referencing the Gundam's V-Fin antennas. Down below, we get an all-black sole unit.
