The Nike SB Dunk High RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee is one of two colorways set to drop alongside each other in November of 2021. Made in collaboration with the popular Bandai-branded anime franchise, this pair comes in thunder blue and metallic gold. A part of the “Project Unicorn” Collection, they were made to commemorate the 15th Anniversary of the graphic novel. Inspired by the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, this pair features an all-leather upper in blue and black with orange detailing. An interchangeable Swoosh on the sides, Gundam branding on the heels and a black sole finish things off.
The Nike Dunk has been an iconic footwear staple ever since its debut as a basketball sneaker in the 1980s. Since then it has gone from the courts to the streets to action sports. With many iterations still being done to this day, the Nike Dunk is considered one of the most popular sneaker silhouettes of all-time. Its current popularity today is as prominent as it was over the last few decades, if not more.
The Gundam x Nike SB Dunk High “RX-0 02 Banshee” is set to release on November 16th, 2021. It will launch via Nike & select stores for a retail price of $110 exclusively in men’s sizing. They will come housed in special packaging as well.
