It’s been a while since we’ve seen a collaboration between Nike Sportswear and West Coast-based Undefeated, but during the heyday of their partnership, any UNDFTD x Nike collaboration was highly sought-after commodity, because the man behind the first sneaker boutique in the West, Eddie Cruz, was a prodigy of the streetwear scene, often predicting trends before they had arrived. This UNDFTD x Nike Dunk High was one of the first collaborations between Nike Sportswear and a sneaker boutique, and as the story goes, these tonal-white samples were actually a mistake, and that result wasn’t exactly to UNDFTD’s liking. Considering the rarity of this grey-outsole version (the gum-sole version is the one that made it’s way out), it certainly brings back some fond memories of Nike’s partnership with one of the premier boutiques in the world. Check out the detailed gallery of the UNDFTD x Nike Dunk High sample and check out the asking from Netherlands-based millz93am on eBay.
