UNDEFEATED certainly has no ownership over olive and orange. Even before their founding, the combination dressed many an iconic military piece, the MA-1 being the most notable. And as a product of its history, the jacket has become a big source of inspiration for fashion and sneaker designers alike, with Nike often borrowing its look for pairs like this upcoming Air Max 97.

Though often a much closer match, the palette here is slightly more muted. The orange, for example, is nowhere near as hi-vis, opting instead for a finish closer to a light brown. Adjacent, the green hits, too, are tonally deeper, complementing both the warm tones and the black that builds out the mesh base, laces, and lining.

For a closer, detailed look, check out the official images below. Sizes are likely to appear on Nike.com and at select retailers within the coming months.

In other news, the Air Jordan 4 Red Thunder is releasing this Saturday.
