Launching as part of a larger collaborative series celebrating the Tokyo 2021 Summer Olympics, the Gundam x Nike Dunk High SB ‘Project Unicorn Banshee Norn’ takes inspiration from the long-running sci-fi franchise that kicked off with the 1979 anime TV series, ‘Mobile Suit Gundam.’
This pair references the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee and features a black leather upper with navy leather overlays outlined in copper trim.
Angular lines on the toe box and collar, along with redesigned and interchangeable Swooshes, replicate the look of the Gundam suit.
A standard Nike SB tag is affixed to the black mesh tongue, while a dark pink unicorn emblem decorates the lateral heel.
The company was founded on January 25, 1964, as Blue Ribbon Sports, by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight, and officially became Nike, Inc. on May 30, 1971.
