Editor's Notes: Official Images of the upcoming Gundam x Nike SB Dunk High collaboration have finally been released. The images give us our best look at the upcoming drop, supposedly inspired by the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam mobile suit from the anime series of the same name.
Thanks to leaks earlier in the year, two colorways were revealed, a white pair and a darker pair. It was originally speculated by @nikesbfeatures that the white pair was a sample, while the darker pair would see a wider release in the coming months, but these official images suggest both could make it to market.
Both colorways feature the same 3D-style Swoosh that is modeled after the Gundam mobile suit’s armor, while the toe box also features leather paneling and perforations to give it a 3D effect. It has also been revealed that Gundam is making a set of figures and keychains to honor the sneaker collaboration. These are set to release in Gundam retailers later this month and it seems like the sneakers are following closely behind.
Nike's SNKRS app has update to reveal the actual release date of the Gunday Dunks along with a price, so all that's left to do is man the battle stations and prepare for (SNKRS) war.
