Nike Dunk 2008 Be True To Your School

When the Nike Dunk first released in 2008, the impact it had on the sporting world and culture itself were unprecedented. When NCAA teams such as St. John’s, NC State, Michigan, Kentucky, UNLV, Syracuse, Arizona and Iowa first laced up their Dunks, a sense of authenticity and school pride among athletic performance were pinnacles. Soon after, skaters would adopt the Dunk for its good performance. The ability to transcend different cultures from the anti-establishment to team sports, was a testament to the Dunk’s wide appeal. 23 years after its inception, it’s undeniable the myriad of colors the Dunk has experienced. To keep things simple, Nike brought back a series of classic and original colors based inspiration from a Be True To Your School poster. They re-mastered the eight original Dunk colorways and incorporated a vintage treatment such as broken-in leather, ollie scars, weathered foam and stained laces. Other products will also be releasing as part of the collegiate theme with colorways from different NCAA entities. Available starting January.
