Much like the Nike Dunk High “Michigan” that retro’d back in September 2020, one of these forthcoming makeups follows the same exact color cadence, only it’s been chopped down to a lower profile. Smooth leather uppers alternate between “Midnight Navy” overlays while “Varsity Maize” hues plaster all over the toe boxes, quarters, tongues and collars. Bottom pieces go for the two-toned look by arriving with crispy white midsoles and navy treading to complete its University of Michigan — the institution known for breeding the “Fab 5” in Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Ray Jackson and Jimmy King — aesthetic.
Its “Team Green” offering is dialed to match up with the Michigan State school colors — the very college that NBA players like Magic Johnson and Draymond Green attended. Overlays, Swooshes and treading do most of the talking as they are each coated in the shoe’s nominal hue. Elsewhere on these collegiate kicks, you’ll find nothing but bright white finishes.
