The Nike UNION LA sneaker collaboration goes WAY back to the year 2005 with the Air Force 180 CLERKS PACK. However, weâ€™re not here to talk about past sneaker releases, but all the upcoming drops! A lot of these were slated for a 2021 release, but, obviously, thatâ€™s not gonna happen! Weâ€™re already through with the year anyways.
The collaboration had a pretty good run with the latest sneaker designs. We even had one of the most epic releases of the year! The Air Jordan 4 UNION LA for the 30th Anniversary of Union in Desert Moss and Taupe Haze. And now, weâ€™re getting a New Cortez, an Air Jordan 2, and a Nike Dunk Lows. Keep reading to find out more!

The key features of this Nike UNION LA Jordan release are the light grey nylon and suede uppers. They also have vibrant blue detailing with a vintage sense through the yellowed laces.

They are functional and are a huge part of pop-culture history. The Nike Cortez was even on TV starring in Forrest Gump!
