It’s often difficult to predict what the Swoosh brand has in store for us next, however that certainly doesn’t stop sneakerheads from guessing. The Dunk silhouette was created for hardwood, however it quickly took to the streets and has become an iconic sneaker in its own right ever since. It’s been over 35 years since it’s initial release and yet the silhouette continues to defy all expectations, delivering bold colourways that manage to attract both sport and culture simultaneously.
With this said, nobody could’ve predicted how well the Nike Dunk Low would turn out in the OG “University Blue” Colourway as a modern design brings this iconic silhouette into the 21st century with ease and sophistication.
A lot of sneakerheads may be more familiar with this shade of Carolina blue on Highs which makes for a fresh change of pace with this iteration. Featured on the overlays, signature Nike Swoosh, toe and heel, the hue adds a brightness that is perfect for any summer ensemble. Below there is a white neutral base that helps maintain a two-tone aesthetic which is both aesthetically pleasing and sophisticated on every level. With this in mind, it’s safe to say the Nike Dunk Low “University Blue” still manages to retain its retro vibe whilst adopting a classic feel that is strangely familiar yet completely brand-new.
Although the Nike Dunk Low “University Blue” was originally teased for a May 20th release, Nike has pushed it back and the colourway is set to drop on June 24th instead. As a perfect summer combination, trying to cop a pair in your size might be a difficult feat as sources suggest that dedicated Dunk collectors have their eyes on the prize. Speed is the aim, ladies and gentlemen!
