Nineteen eighty-five’s “Be True To Your School” pack is one of the great, enduring collection’s of all-time, garnering acclaim both due to the association with some of college basketball’s most accomplished schools and the simple two-tone color-blocking that omitted official school logos, ensuring the shoes were impressively versatile. Now, one of that pack’s best colorways makes its return.
Created to match the distinctive hues of the Wolverines, the Nike Dunk High Michigan marries together starkly contrasting colors on the buttery leather upper, as a maize base is overlaid by navy blue panels. The palette is unmistakable, immediately evocative of UM, but wildly attractive in its own right, standing on its own even if you’ve never heard of Chris Webber.
The Nike Dunk High Michigan release date is officially set for May 14. Some independent shops may already be stocking it, but May 14 is the date for Nike.com and the SNKRS app, and perhaps some national accounts.
