The Nike Dunk was first premiered on the college hardwood, making major waves in 1985 when it debuted in a pack of color-coordinated products for high-profile teams. Now, that theme is being revived to commemorate today’s leading programs in honor of the silhouette’s 35th anniversary. This edition blends an upper of university orange with overlays of marine to celebrate men’s college basketball’s most recent champions, the UVA Cavaliers. Look into these detail images of the shoes, and gear up for the 6/24 release.
The raffle is live today Monday June 22 until 6pm. Sign up here!
The “Syracuse” and “Kentucky” Nike Dunk Lows are arriving March 14th. After being sneak previewed on the likes of Travis Scott, University of Kentucky’s John Calipari, and Devin Booker over the past few months, we are geared up for the official release. Both colorways pay homage to universities that were part of Nike’s original “Be True To Your School” Dunk pack. The pack was released in 1985 and comprised seven Dunk Highs made for Nike-sponsored schools University of Michigan, University of Kentucky, University of Iowa, Georgetown, Syracuse, St. John’s and UNLV. Perhaps we will see more of the Dunk Lows from this collection in 2020, as Virgil Abloh has used the UNLV & Michigan colorways for recent releases as well.
