The Dunk is back in full, but Nike is just getting started. As upcoming new and retro colorways of the legendary silhouette continue to hit our social feeds, we finally have a better look at the fan-favorite “Syracuse” colorway dropping this Spring.
If you have not been paying attention to Nike’s revival of their legendary Dunk silhouette, now would be a good time. Over the last few years, the Swoosh has been slowly but steadily retroing one of the most important sneakers of the last several decades, the Dunk. Originally built for basketball, the shoe was quickly adopted by skateboarders and sneakerheads, who sought after pairs for their almost garrish colors and artist collaborations. Now, nearly 20 years after Dunks took over, they’re doing it again. To feed the beast of demand, Nike has been releasing some old school favorites, like the “Syracuse” Dunk from 1985 and 2016. However, for the 2020 iteration, Nike has chopped off the higher ankle collar, instead opting for the Dunk’s low-top iteration.
NIKE DUNK LOW “SYRACUSE” RELEASE INFORMATION
The 2020 iteration of the Nike Dunk Low in the famous “Syracuse” color scheme has not yet been announced for release, but given that Nike is showing them to friends & family, we can expect a drop sometime in the coming months. The retail pride for the new Dunk will remain at $110, and likely release from both Nike and select retailers. Check out Don C’s in-hand photo below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.
