Popular sportswear/sneaker retailer, Undefeated, teased of an upcoming collaboration with Nike last week, and now, it's finally here.
As told by Nike, their partnership dates back to 2002, when UNDFTD and its iconic 5 Stikes logo caught Nike's eye, resulting in the first of many collaborative efforts between the two. From there, and in an act of good faith, 48 pairs of white-on-white-on-gum Nike Dunks with the 5 strikes logo were gifted to the Undefeated crew, none of which were commercially sold and all of which have been virtually unobtainable since.
11 years later, Nike and Undefeated finally release the iconic, previously unreleased Undefeated Dunk. The previously unreleased shoe returns in the collaborative "Bring Back Pack" featuring premium leather uppers and the Undefeated 5 Strikes on the heel. Additionally, an identically colored Nike Hyperdunk is added. The understated colorway allows the Hyperdunk’s cutting-edge technology to do all the talking and demonstrate how innovation has redefined the sneaker aesthetic.
The Nike x Undefeated "Bring Back Pack" hits globally on Saturday (February 9).
