In the late-1970s, major Japanese brand Gundam helped create Japanese anime as we know it today. Soon, Gundam’s brand spread from Japan, sweeping the globe with its stylistic design, expert storytelling, and captivating animation. To celebrate the undeniable Gundam anime and artistic style, Nike has created a special shoe honoring anime culture’s unique design and character dubbed the Nike SB Dunk High Gundam. Today, the classic Gundam style only grows in popularity, and famous shoe manufacturer Nike pays tribute to this creative and trailblazing animation and design innovator.
The Nike SB Dunk High Gundam celebrates everything traditional Gundam anime represents, ranging from the iconic styling, bold colors, flashes of creativity, and the ability to create your own unique story. The Nike Swoosh located on the side of the shoe is completely removable, allowing the wearer to choose between a clean and traditional Swoosh or a dramatic and stylized Swoosh silhouette. The shoe’s toe box features additional detailing, and the shoe comes with a realistic yet robotic decal sheet to allow further customization. While most of the Nike shoe is a clean and classic white, pops and splashes of color give a vibrant, bold, and unmistakably Gundam style. Gundam’s style has influenced decades of toy design and anime and now continues to excite shoe enthusiasts and passionate anime collectors worldwide.
