Celebrating the 35th anniversary of the silhouette, the Dunk Low Retro SP 'Syracuse' brings back a look from 1985's Be True to Your School series. Built with leather, the upper gives the nod to Syracuse University in white and Orange Blaze. Perforations on the toe box provide breathability, while Zoom Air in the sockliner provides cushioning. The sole unit underfoot continues the two-tone look.

The color blocking on these Dunk Lows match that of other recent Dunk Lows such as the “Coconut Milk” and “Dark Marina Blue.” The upper comes dressed in a rich green hue, while the overlays are dressed in the slightly darker Chlorophyll shade. Rounding out the design is the addition of white on the Swoosh, laces, and midsole.
This spring-ready shoe comes in that Dunk Low silhouette we're loving as of late, with a pale base in a mixture of tumbled leather and smooth leather. Creamy yellow overlays sit atop, while that iconic Nike Swoosh logo goes one step further with a vibrant yellow. This tonal vibe continues via soft yellow laces, further Nike branding on the heel area, tongue area, and if that's not enough, a cute little lemon graphic comes embroidered on the lateral heel.
This latest lifestyle installment leans on a neutral-toned presentation. A bright white tone covers the traditional smooth leather panels that appear on the perforated toe boxes, quarters and collars. Glossy, patent leather materials neighbor these by making up the “Light Iron Ore” overlays around the toe boxes, next to the throat and on the heels as well as the Swooshes which are dipped in all-black. Breaking up the grayscale theme are subtle pops of “University Red” which are laid on the Nike branding that appears on the tongues and heels.
There’s no way around it, 2021 has been all about the Nike Dunk Low. While the silhouette has been dominating our monthly release rundowns every month with handfuls of new colorways, Nike still continues to progress the silhouette in new and interesting makeovers to keep fans coming back for more. While Nike has visited shades of pink in the past this year in the form of the Laser Orange rendition, they never really added a signature pink offering to the silhouette but now that changes with this new “Archeo Pink” offering.
Now made from at least 20% recycled materials by weight, Nike has refreshed a classic that keeps the original integrity with a minimized impact. Dressed in a simple University Red and White color blocking, this Nike Dunk Low comes constructed in a full leather build with the brand’s “Move to Zero” pinwheel logos appearing on the Volt insoles. A White midsole atop a Red Grind Rubber sole complete the design.
The Dunk Low ‘Black White’ brings a classic two-tone look to its classic basketball construction. The shoe’s low-top build emerges in leather, with a white base contrasted by black overlays, with further black on the Swoosh branding. Perforations on the toe box provide breathability, while underfoot, the two-tone look is matched by the tooling, which incorporates a concentric rubber outsole for traction.
