Nike’s Dunk Low is coming back to where it all started all thanks to ‘Syracuse’ and ‘Kentucky’ bold moves in ‘March Madness’ University colors.
The Dunk Low’s has been a staple of the University hardwood as a color-coordinated product for university programs since 1985. Since then the sneaker has cemented its status as a streetwear icon and staple to the sport of skateboarding. In celebration of the 35th anniversary, a handful of those treasured team colors are back. With a price tag of $100 the university-inspired colorways grace the revival of the Dunk silhouette. The “Kentucky” colorway sports white with Varsity Royal while the “Syracuse” iteration features the same white upper with Orange Blaze.
The sneakers are no stranger to sneakerheads, ballplayers and those who just cop to kick it. The classic pair is back just in time to celebrate ‘March Madness’ 2020. While there are rules that govern the NCAA College Basketball, there are no rules that state the indirect compensation or support for specific schools. While is why the sneakers do not carry university logos, but a simple colorway design which is unarguably not with a loophole for major companies to make a profit on the labor of athlete students.
But shop away. The release comes March 14th on SNKRS app and specific retailers.
