Eleven years ago the crew at Undefeated received a gift. One that would stoke sneaker culture and mark the beginning of a lasting relationship between Nike and the then-budding sports culture brand and sneaker boutique. That gift has come full circle.
In February, Nike released the white/gum “Bring Back Pack”, but that was only half of the story. There is a second colorway of the special edition Dunk Hi and Nike Hyperdunk that completes the rest of this tale. Originally existing as a special thank-you to 48 members of the Undefeated crew to celebrate the opening of their second storefront, the second color of the “Bring Back Pack” has since become a grail existing only in the closets of a lucky few and on countless internet pages.
Undefeated is famous for its military-inspired renditions of classic sneakers — and the second installment of the “Bring Back Pack” is a prime example of this approach. Spurred by by an armed forces camping backpack, the new pack features olive-drab mesh uppers with contrasting black Swoosh .
While the Nike Dunk Hi represents the past in all its glory, the Nike Hyperdunk looks forward. Touting the latest in Nike innovation; Nike Lunarlon, Dynamic Flywire, and Hyperfuse technologies, the Nike Hyperdunk combines the distinct colorway of the original with the cutting-edge innovation that has come to define Nike Basketball.
The second installment of the Nike x Undefeated “Bring Back Pack” will be available globally beginning May 25.
