Four Release Dates: Gundam x Nike SB Dunk High ‘Project Unicorn White’
Release: 27 October 2021

Yoshiyuki Tomino’s military fiction Gundam continues to fuel the pop-cultural zeitgeist in 2021, the hugely popular series now mechanising the Nike SB Dunk High.

Coming in two lethal mech-robot colourways, here’s the official look at the ‘Project Unicorn White’ rendition, the model taking inspiration from Banagher Links’ RX-0 Unicorn Gundam in Destroy Mode.

Making use of a creamy white base, the ‘Project Unicorn White’ colourway 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 release of the Gundam x Nike SB collaboration will be staggered. It will first hit skate stores in Japan, China and Europe on September 24, before launching on Nike SNKRS in those regions on September 27.

A wider release will then land at US skate stores on October 9, then Nike SNKRS on October 12.
