NIKE DUNK LOW GEORGETOWN
The Nike Dunk’s college roots run deep. In fact, they were originally called the College Color High by designer Peter Moore, and was the ploy that Nike used to sign a slew of national colleges as their team’s official shoe. The University of Michigan, University of Kentucky, University of Iowa, Syracuse, St. John’s, UNLV, and Georgetown were those signed, and the rest was history. Ever since the colleges have been celebrated, with everything from Air Jordan PEs to OG Dunk Highs and Lows. And while this upcoming Nike Dunk Low “Georgetown” doesn’t fall into the latter category, it could quite easily have been one of the original releases from 1985’s first run.
Appearing for the first time today in kids sizes (adults is expected, too), we see a simply-blocked pair in its most basic of builds. Collegiate Navy overlays rest atop a light grey leather upper in true Hoyas tune, while a classic white midsole and navy outsole rest underfoot. Completing the design is Nike’s signature orange Air branding on int insole.
