To better celebrate the Tokyo Olympics, Nike tasked their most notable collaborators to craft not just an apparel but also footwear. UNDERCOVER‘s part, which uses the Dunk High as a vehicle, delivers both a vintage-inspired construction as well as an invitation to the imaginary “UBA.” Dressed in black and red, the collaboration reenacts iconic palettes; however, its blocking is distinct from Jordan Brand’s own “Bred” offerings. The neutral fills in the robust overlays — toe cap, eye stay, Swoosh, etc — as well as the padded nylon tongue. Then, underneath, a tumbled leather gives off a premium effect that’s dressed down by way of the bolder color. In white, the laces lead the eye upward to the co-branded label, whose branding is relatively subtle when compared to the heel’s emboldened “UBA” and “UNDERCOVER BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION” text. Finally, Jun Takahashi’s love for speckling rounds out the midsole
The Nike Dunk High 1985 x Undercover UBA was released on July 28th, 2021, and retailed for USD 150.
