UNDEFEATED x Nike Is Coming Full Circle

Another day brings a look at yet another collaborative sneaker from UNDEFEATED and Nike. After recently coming across a second Dunk Low from the brands, imagery of a co-branded Air Force 1 has emerged, courtesy of @magic_tarantino.
These teasers continue to roll in as UNDEFEATED and Nike are prepping the release of a “Dunk vs AF1” pack, which sees past UNDEFEATED x Nike Dunk colorways being transferred to the Air Force 1, and vice versa. Two Dunk Lows from the collection have already surfaced, and now we have our first AF1.
The Air Force 1 Low “Ballistic,” which is what it’s being called for now, harkens back to a friends and family Dunk High from 2003 that was made to celebrate the opening of UNDEFEATED’s second store. Fast forward to 2012, and a two-sneaker pack featuring the Dunk High and Hyperdunk was released to commemorate the initial collaboration.
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.
As this is an early look at the pair, it remains to be seen when the UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Force 1 Low will release. One thing’s for certain, though — we can expect more Forces and Dunks to surface as the two brands flesh out the “Dunk vs AF1” collection.
