Update January 27, 2022: European retailers are beginning to announce a February 1 release date for the Union x Nike Dunk Low's Lakers-esque colourway, while information on a date of arrival for the other two colourways has not yet been announced. This region-specific information and the pack's overarching international flight theme may mean that each pair will be a regional exclusive. Keep it locked here for more info as it's made available, and check out a teaser that's been loaded on Union's website here.
Union's forthcoming Dunk Low collection with Nike has been one of December's hottest leaks, and now it appears as if a third pair is joining the previously-revealed 'Midnight Navy' and chilly blue colourways. This third pair – revealed by @solebyjc – discards the cool tones of its counterparts in favour of a more airy colour scheme and accents that seem to nod to the Los Angeles Lakers, therefore tangentially saluting Union's home base in the City of Angels.
Though the shoe's purple shades, yellow contrast stitching and white base may offer a vastly different look than the above-mentioned styles, it's still identical in build. Uppers are constructed entirely of a gridded synthetic material, with hi-vis reflective detailing appearing on the Swooshes and heels and loose threads hanging from the overlays. Union's Frontman appears on the lateral heel's badge, and a familiar yellow tag is pinned to the lateral Swoosh.
An official release date for these Union kicks has yet to be announced, though past leaks indicated that the Union x Nike Dunk Low collection may be dropping in April 2022. We'll be bringing you more info as soon as it's available, so keep it locked here in the meantime!,
