After kicking off its “Team Tones” pack with the Dunk Low “Brazil,” Nike has readied the pack’s second style: the Dunk Low “University Red.” Reminiscent of the white/red Dunk High from 1985’s influential “Be True to Your School” collection and nearly identical to 2005’s Dunk Low “St. John’s” — save for the color of its midsole stitching — the “University Red” is one of the summer’s hottest Nike Dunk releases.
Simplicity is key on this no-frills Nike Sportswear sneaker. White leather quarters, toeboxes, collars and padded mesh throats are overlaid by red mudguards, Swooshes, eyestays, heels and laces. Traditional branding is provided by fabric tongue tags with a red graphic hit and a white Nike spellout embroidered on the red heel tab. White midsoles and bright red outsoles finalize the look.
Although this is the second “Team Tones” silhouette to release, it’s the third low-cut “Be True to Your School” iteration to drop in 2020, following up March’s “Kentucky” and “Syracuse” styles.
