Nike Sportswear is set to continue its well-regarded “Team Tones” pack with the Dunk Low SP “Champ Colors.” With an orange and blue color scheme that looks like it was built for the Syracuse Orangemen but is in fact inspired by the Virginia Cavaliers — hence the championship-styled moniker — the “Champ Colors” is a welcomed addition to the Dunk‘s strong 2020 lineup.
Built entirely of supple leather, the low-cut upper splits its real estate between vibrant orange and rich navy. The former hue is splashed on the toebox, quarters, collar and throat, while the latter tactly tamps down the temperature by gracing mudguards, eyestays, Swooshes, laces and rear overlays. Blue laces tie everything together both literally and figuratively, while further branding is served by an orange fabric tongue tag and a navy heel tab with an embroidered orange Nike spellout graphic. White midsoles and navy blue outsoles complete the look.
Although the Dunk Low “University Red” was pushed back to July 1 in the US, the “Champ Colors” is sticking true to its original global release date of June 24. It’ll be available at Nike SNKRS pages worldwide, and is priced at a palatable $100 USD.
