Model: Air Force 1 Low and Dunk Low "5 On It"
Release Date: September 3
Buy: UNDEFEATED.com and at all UNDEFEATED Chapter stores
What We’re Saying: UNDEFEATED and Nike have a long history of collaborations, which is the basis for their latest joint effort. With the "Dunk vs. AF-1" series, the familiar partners are reverting back to previously released colorways and injecting new life into them by transferring the schemes to other silhouettes.
Dropping last week, the "Ballistic" Dunk was the first of the new pack to emerge in the form of an Air Force 1. The colorway harkens back to a friends and family Dunk High from 2003 that was made to celebrate the opening of UNDEFEATED's second store.
Released alongside the "Ballistic", the “On Your Feet Kid” Dunk Low draws from the "Inside Out" Air Force 1 from 2006, and, more specifically, the "Canteen" colorway that was one of two iterations from the collab.
Now, a third Dunk Low from the pack has emerged, bringing a sleek black suede upper, purple rubber outsoles, and a luxe-looking faux fur Swoosh to the series. There's currently no solid release info on this third Dunk, but it's expected to arrive in the coming weeks. You can get a closer look at the shoe below.
Done up in UNDEFEATED's familiar olive and black color scheme, the Air Force 1 Low "Ballistic" finds olive-colored ballistic nylon and suede coming together throughout. Black accents serve to complement the base via the Swoosh branding, five strike logos, lining, laces, and outsole, the latter of which is broken up by an off-white midsole.
The “On Your Feet Kid” Dunk Low draws from the "Inside Out" Air Force 1 from 2006, more specifically, the "Canteen" colorway that was one of two iterations from the collab. feature a smooth and textured brown base offset by a bright yellow Swoosh on the side of the shoe. UNDEFEATED's signature five strike logo is applied to the heel, just a short distance from the matching Nike branding. Below, a white midsole breaks up the darker coloration of the upper and the outsole.
These are merely the first three releases from UNDEFEATED and Nike's "Dunk vs. AF-1" series, as we've already seen additional colorways that are expected to follow.
