Nike‘s recently-revived Dunk Low series returns on March 14 with the release of the “Kentucky” and “Syracuse” editions. Ahead of the release, HYPEBEAST offers a closer look at the hotly anticipated pairs.

The two colorways are drawn from the 1985 “Be True to Your School” pack and are slated to be one of the biggest drops in the Nike Dunk Low lineage this year. It follows on from the 2001 “Plum” revival, pairs from Off-White™ and Travis Scott‘s offering.

For the “Kentucky” and “Syracuse” iterations, Nike uses a two-tone palette of “Varsity Blue” and “Orange Blaze” against white, respectively. The pairs are highly detailed, with their leather uppers sporting a perforated toe box, embroidered branding on the rear and the Swoosh emblem on the mid-panels standing out against the stark white background. Thin mesh tongues are finished with Nike-branded tongue tags, while its sole unit rounds out each offering with another touch of tonal color blocking.

Take a closer look at the Nike Dunk Low in its “Kentucky” and “Syracuse” renditions above. Both the Nike Dunk Low iterations will drop on March 14 via Nike SNKRS for $100 USD each.

In other news, Nike has announced its Air Max Day 2020 releases.
