Nike's Gundam Sneakers Look Badass

Out later this month, there are going to be two pairs

These have been teased by sneaker types for months now, but over the last few days Nike has finally come out and made them official: over the next few weeks we’re getting not one but two pairs of Dunk Highs paying homage to Gundam.

There are two pairs of these Dunks coming, each of them based on the RX-0 Unicorn. They’ve got a Unicorn logo at the base, mech-style detailing across the toebox, and a large swoosh that has the same touches as the Unicorn’s “fins”. Those swoosh marks are also attached with velcro, so can be torn off and/or realigned.

Here’s Nike’s summary of the shoes:

In the late 1970s, Gundam re-defined anime culture and launched the Tokyo, Japan-based brand’s futuristic vision across the globe. Defined by a synergy between compelling storytelling and expert design, Gundam’s work with animation and toy design shaped collector culture for decades and continues to inspire and innovate.

The “Gundam” SB Dunk High is a testament to imagination and work ethic, and brings DIY inspiration and science-fiction fashion to an iconic line of eccentric SB Dunks. With a removable Swoosh—each stylised to dramatically alter the silhouette, depending on if you want to go bright or tactically clean—this sneaker is ready to suit up and go mobile. The “Gundam” Dunk honours tradition and the synergy between Nike SB and Gundam collector culture—from the toe box detailing, flashes of colour and the accompanying decal sheet that’s recognisably real robotic.

The white pair is simply called “Gundam”, while the darker ones are called “Banshee.” Both will be out later this month. Below you can find some of Nike’s official photos, which will give you a better look at some of the detailing.
