The Nike Dunk High 'Syracuse' returns in 2021

In the last couple of months we have seen several OG colorways return to the Nike Dunk High. The 'Varsity Maize' and 'Michigan' colorway were part of the 'Be True To Your School' Pack in 1985. Now the 'Syracuse' colorway is coming back from the pack in 2021.

In 1985 the Air Jordan 1 High came out and was immediately a great success. Later that year also the Nike Dunk High was released, slightly less popular than the Air Jordan 1 High. Nike started working with basketball teams from different schools in 1985. From this collaboration came the 'Be True To Your School' pack. This pack had Nike Dunk Highs who all had the colorway of the different schools. Yet the Air Jordan 1 High was still the biggest player.

The 'Syracuse' colorway might look familiar to you, because earlier this year the colorway appeared on the Nike Dunk low. The base of the sneaker is made of white leather while the rest of the upper has been given an orange colour. Nike branding can be found on the tongue in orange. Underneath the upper there is a white midsole and orange outsole to complete the sneaker.

The Nike Dunk High 'Syracuse' will be released on Wednesday 19 May 2021 at Nike for €100. Check out the images below and keep an eye on the Sneakerjagers release calendar to never miss another sneaker release.
