Created for the hardwood but taken to the streets, the ’80s basketball icon returns with perfectly sheened overlays and original university colours. With its classic hoops design, the Nike Dunk High Retro channels ’80s vintage back onto the streets while its padded, high-top collar adds an old-school look rooted in comfort.
Another Nike Dunk High Retro release is upon us, presented to us in potential college colors to continue the original story told by the Dunk back in 1985. While many will be quick to associate this two-toned pairing with the Los Angeles Lakers, it’s possible that Nike is drawing a connection to the LSU Tigers, a Nike affiliated school.
Seen here in the traditional Dunk High Retro build, this upcoming release sees a university gold underlay with a varsity purple overlay for that perfected college-style color-blocking. A full leather build on the upper with a classic nylon tongue, this Dunk High is completed with a solid white midsole and a purple outsole.
Release date information is now available and it seems they are releasing in Europe on the 13th of September 2022 with an expected retail price of 120€.
