The final issue of 1985’s original Nike Dunk High “Be True” collection is the white/university red colorway that has become synonymous with St. John’s University. Nike has gradually reintroduced the other icons over the last two years, and the original set will finally be completed as we approach the release of the Dunk High Retro “University Red.”
As with previous Retro-inspired Dunks, these releases feature supple leather uppers that impart the worn-in feel that has made Dunks so popular with modern footwear fashionistas. The red/white colorway in particular has been a success, with 2020’s Dunk Low “St. John’s” being one of the most sought-after of the original college colorways.
Currently, retailers are reporting a March 2022 release date – a date that fits with the ongoing NCAA March Madness tournament. Complete family sizes will be available soon, so stay tuned. If you’re a purist when it comes to classics, check out the latest updates to the Dunk’s main rival, the New Balance 550.
