Following Virgil Abloh’s university-honoring Nike Dunk release, which came in the colors of the University of Michigan and UNLV, Nike continues to drop remastered sneakers from its 1985 “Be True To Your School” pack. This time, it’s the “Syracuse” and “Kentucky” university colors that dress two new Nike Dunk Low sneakers. Though they got a limited release on March 14, you can still secure your pair, or pairs, at marketplace of things, StockX now.
The 2020 “Syracuse” dunk boasts rich blue overlays and a Swoosh in the “Royal” shade, taking the form of a low top sneaker crafted from premium leather. Part of Nike’s celebrations for the Dunk’s 35th anniversary, the blue colorway was first seen during All-Star Weekend on the feet of former Wildcat, Devin Booker.
In a decidedly more unconventional shade when it comes to sneaker colorways, the “Kentucky” is also a reissue of the orange sneaker that was part of the original “Be True To Your School” collection 35 years ago. The colorway also got a very limited high-top release via a few select retailers in 2016, alongside a blue version. Nike and Dunk fans alike will be eager for the opportunity to cop both sneakers again.
StockX market data shows that both colorways are attracting average sale prices of around $300 each currently, with the 52-week high price for the “Syracuse” at $702 and $435 for the “Kentucky.”
