Union Los Angeles x Nike Dunk Low “Passport Pack” Features Tear-Away Uppers That Reveal Leather Below

On January 28th, Chris Gibbs and his Union Los Angeles team unveiled their latest collaboration with NIKE, Inc.: the “Passport Pack,” which features three colorways of the Nike Dunk Low inspired by pairs that were previously available only in New York City, London, and Tokyo. Prior to the first style’s Union-exclusive release, the “Midnight Navy/Pistachio” colorway has been revealed via new imagery that reveals premium leather beneath the grid-patterned mesh that covers the entirety of the upper.

For the uninitiated, Gibbs’ goal with his brand’s next collaboration with the Beaverton, Oregon-based institution was to reintroduce the sense of travel enabled by Nike Dunks in the late 1990s and early 2000s – in order to purchase a sneaker that was only available in a specific region, a young Gibbs frequently had to travel overseas. Thus, the “Passport Pack” outfits the Union-exclusive “Pistachio” offering with an ensemble inspired by a 2003 high-top release across Foot Locker Europe. While the netting affects the opacity of the colour palette, when ripped, it reveals the deep navy and vibrant green hues in all their glory.
