Editor’s Notes: With a solid number of rumored Nike and Jordan collaborations under its belt for this year, Union Los Angeles is ready for its first collaborative sneaker rollout of the year.
Union LA is joining the Dunk craze with its take on the Nike Dunk Low. Coming shortly after Dover Street's spin on the model, the iconic LA streetwear brand's Dunk is (literally) fly.
Named the "Passport Pack," the Union LA x Nike Dunk Low pays homage to Union and its early days of hitting up major cities for the most elite streetwear and kicks. Specifically, the Chris Gibbs-led brand shouts out New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo as "homes" to Union.
Three cities sum up three colorways for the "Passport Pack." While "Pistachio" saw a release in February, "Argon" and "Court Purple" arrive in March 2022.
The Union LA Dunks are genuinely the gift that keeps on giving. Translucent ripstop matched with awry stitching takes over the upper, but wait — there's more. These surface details are a rough draft to the actual Dunk (or you can leave it as is, the choice is yours).
Personal curiosity encourages you to peel back the shoes' grid-printed ripstop, revealing a rich Midnight Navy and Pistachio in premium leather underneath.
Skateboarders Briana King and Karim Abdul and creative Kei Hashimoto lead the Union LA x Nike Dunk Low "Passport Pack" campaign, rocking the brand's gear with, of course, the featured sneaker collab.
Union offers outright innovation on the surface of its Dunk with a classic waiting for its turn to shine below. The decision is up to you, the wearer. Where's your end destination?
