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
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
The Nike Dunk Low “University Red” will hit Nike SNKRS Japan
and Nike SNKRS US
on June 12. The MSRP is set at a flat $100 USD.
