When looking at the most popular sneaker silhouettes over the last few years, Nike’s Dunk Low has been one of spearheads of current skate trends that are dominating the streetwear market. Collaborative projects are constantly in the pipeline with cosigns from the likes of Lebron James, Travis Scott, and Kyrie Irving stealing the crown for some of the most high-profile editions of the shoe in recent times.

Now Nike is presenting its latest iteration of the Dunk Low entitled “UCLA” — which is a revitalized edition of the 1985 version designed by Peter Moore — in a striking “Blue Jay,” “University Gold,” and white colorway. Its color inspiration comes from the sports programs at the University of California and is dubbed by Moore to be an ideal sneaker both on the basketball court and on the skateboard

Crafted from soft leather with a rubber outsole, “University Gold” tones are sprayed across the lateral mid-panel, around the toe cap, and over the laces. The low profile silhouette also features a white panel above the grippy “Blue Jay” colored sole beneath it. Nike’s customary Swoosh comes in “Blue Jay” along the side of the shoe, while additional Nike branding can be spotted on the heel tab in “University Gold.”

You can have a closer look at Nike’s Dunk Low “UCLA” above and it will be available in retailers such as Asphalt Gold from August 3 for €109 (approx $110 USD).
