Collaborations galore have been surfacing between UNDEFEATED and Nike this Spring, and after showing off its snakeskin-covered Dunk Low makeup, the two parties also appear to be beefing up its impending “Dunk vs AF1” Pack with an Air Force 1 Low “Ballistic” installment. This particular makeup is heavily influenced by the streetwear stalwart’s friends and family Dunk High collab that initially surfaced 2003 in celebration of the opening of UNDEFEATED‘s second store. Nine years later, a two-pronged ballistic Dunk High and Nike Hyperdunk pack which was also inspired by this initial muse dropped to the public.

The west coast brand’s signature palette of drab olive and black is brought to the forefront on these AF1s. The former is responsible for outfitting the ballistic toe boxes and quarter paneling, as well as the buttery suede overlays that accompany. Shoe laces, Swooshes, interior liners and the five strike logos which are planted onto the tongue tabs and lateral heels are all clad in stark black. Moving down, the midsoles are prepared with an off-white paint job to give a slightly aged look, and come coupled with plain black treading.

There’s no official word on when these will be hitting the shelves just yet, but you can likely find them dropping in the coming months.

Elsewhere in footwear news, Nike’s Free Run Trail is retuning in its original “Black/Anthracite” palette.
