Union Introduces Their Nike 'Un-Cortez' Collaboration

California Dreaming

Los Angeles storefront, Union is having themselves a banner year; that, honestly has spanned 2021 and carried momentum seamlessly into 2022. Dating back to last year, with their Air Jordan 4 Retro 30th Anniversary collaborations – the first stanza of this year has been complete with the Nike Dunk 'Passport Pack' and the twin Air Jordan 2 Retro drops. And as Nike celebrates its 50th birthday, so does an original Swoosh icon, the Nike Cortez.


A favorite son of the West Coast, specifically LA, the Nike Cortez is the honorary silhouette of the area. It is as Los Angeles as the Hollywood Hills to Crenshaw Blvd. It is the western equivalent to the Air Force 1 for New York. And true to the brightness and vibrance of Los Angeles, the "Un-Cortez" as its been dubbed is a reflection of the people and the creativity, the style of the City of Angels.


In the short film, we are introduced to the reworked silhouette in a cozy tan motif, complete with suede textures, the Union logo emblazon on the heel tab and accenting color pops to draw the eye. In addition to the inverted sky blue color scheme as well. And a third, ash black based look.


Release of the collaboration has yet to get an official launch date, but it is coming soon as Union promises. Stay close to Sole-U for further release info.
