Last month, Nike revived two original Be True To Your School Nike Dunks, the white-and-red St. John’s edition and the white-and-blue Kentucky colorway. The NCAA Tournament is now well behind us, but thankfully Nike’s not done resurrecting classic BTTYS colorways.
The Nike Dunk High Michigan is one of two returning favorites on the horizon, and it happens to be one of the best of the original 1985 pack. Navy blue overlays are paired with a gold base on the buttery leather upper, with a white midsole adding that timeless touch.
Nike Basketball has come a long way since the mid-’80s, but most of it can be traced back, at least to some degree, to the bright bold colors of the Be True To Your School collection. This is wearable history.
The Nike Dunk High Michigan is officially set to release May 14 at stateside retailers. Sneaker Politics appears to be stocking the shoe now, though that could be a mistake and they could wind up pulling their stock until the 14th.
