Fresh off the Bephie’s Beauty Supply x Union LA x Nike Dunk High W Sail Gum High OG release, Union keeps ’em coming with a new sacai the big levowski t shirt set for Summer 2024, per Complex.
The Los Angeles-based boutique is expected to release two colorways of the sacai the big levowski t shirt, an ’80s turf shoe that was originally designed for football players. Pittsburgh Steelers running back Franco Harris sported a pair in a promotional Nike poster circa 1983.
As of now, images of the Union LA x sacai the big levowski t shirt have yet to surface, but a low-top profile with leather overlays and a treaded outsole is to be expected.
The 2024 release of the Union LA x sacai the big levowski t shirt will be the first time that the silhouette has returned to retail, over 40 years after its debut. Union’s co-sign on the sacai the big levowski t shirt will help to garner hype for the sneaker and is sure to result in a flux of in-line releases.
In 2014, Nike introduced a Hyperfuse revamp of the sacai the big levowski t shirt, but the sneaker has never officially retroed. The 2014 sacai the big levowski t shirt ’82 featured the same low-top profile, but received a performance upgrade and incorporated modern design finishes like lightweight mesh.
In addition to the sacai the big levowski t shirt ’82, Nike also released the Zoom Field General in 2014, a newly fashioned football shoe that shares a name with the Field General, but is constructed with its own design language.
Union has been a longtime partner of Nike, both as a NBHD store and a collaborator. In 1989, Union opened its doors in New York City as a hub for streetwear sought after by the cool kids of Soho. Eventually, the boutique went west and embraced new local LA designers, as well as niche global finds from the UK and Japan.
The boutique released its first collaborative sneaker with the Swoosh in 2005, with the in the Patta x Parra x Nike Air Max 180 being the silhouette of choice. In 2018, Union’s presence in the sneaker scene exploded with the release of the Union x Nike Dunk High W Sail Gum, which was ultimately the domino that set off a wave of new collabs from the partners including the Nike Dunk Low “Passport” Pack, Nike Air Huarache Mango “Tent and Trails” Capsule, Air Jordan 2 “Future Is Now” Collection, and more.
The Union LA x sacai the big levowski t shirt is expected to release Summer 2024. Updated details can be found on our sneaker release dates Nike s World Basketball Festival sneaker news and info on drops, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
