If the hype surrounding Travis Scott’s Playstation collaboration is indicative of anything, it’s that the Nike Dunk isn’t going away any time soon. But because five pairs isn’t enough to meet growing demand for the once-outlet-frequenter, the Swoosh has been cookin’ up dozens of other propositions. On schedule for 2021?: A Dunk Low version of the original “UNLV” colorway.
Teased as launching in grade school sizing, the two-tone arrangement commemorating the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Runnin’ Rebels’ stellar run of the late 1980s is ostensibly arriving in adult sizes, too. Although the original pair released as a Dunk High within the storied “Be True To Your School” pack from 1985, the retro opts into a shorter silhouette. “Soft Grey” sets the stage for the eye-catching “University Red” that overtakes every overlay across the upper; “NIKE AIR” branding on the tongue also indulges in the scarlet tone. Underfoot, sole units are effectively transplanted from yesteryear as they boast the tried-and-proven “White” midsole/red outsole combination.
Enjoy a detailed look at the forthcoming pair here below, and expect a Nike SNKRS launch to occur before 2021 ends.
