Update: Official images of the Union x Nike Dunk Low have emerged, thus confirming the existence of this colab! Release details are yet to come.
On the modern-day footwear front, Chris Gibbs' Union is mostly known for its swath of Jordan Brand colabs – namely the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 2 and Air Jordan 4. Now, however, the LA-based outfit is exploring new territory by linking up with Nike for a new take on the ever-popular Dunk Low.
Uppers are crafted entirely of grid-patterned ripstop nylon, dressed in airy blue and purple shades and accented by bright red contrast stitching that runs around almost every seam. Special branding is present as well, thanks to a small yellow Union tag on the lateral quarter and Union's Frontman logo appearing in circular badge fashion towards the heel. Though this is the first Union x Nike colab in quite a while, it's definitely not the first one ever – Union contributed a colourful Air Force 180 to Nike Sportswear's famous 'Clerks Pack' back in 2005!
As the Union x Nike Dunk Low just leaked, there's currently no release date or pricing information available. However, it'll likely hit shelves sometime in 2022, so be sure to keep it locked right here for more info as it's made available.
