Update: Earlier this year, a satin-covered rendition of the Nike Dunk Low "UNLV" popped up. Now, Nike has officially revealed the shimmery sneaker ahead of its release that is expected to take place later in 2023. For more information, dive into our previous coverage below.
Original Story: For Nike, 2023 is the year of classic colorways. The Swoosh will reportedly be bringing back several iconic renditions throughout the year, including the Nike Air Foamposite One "Anthracite," Nike Air Max CB 94 "Triple Black," and the 2004 Air Jordan 13 "Wheat."
Now, the Nike Dunk Low "UNLV" is up to bat, reimagined in an all-over satin material that brings new life to the OG colorway. Serving as a well-deserved throwback to the Swoosh's original "Be True To Your School" Pack — which was introduced during the model's initial debut — color-blocked "Medium Grey" and "Varsity Red" tones outfit the release.
The pair's traditional leather facade is abolished and replaced with a luxurious satin finish. Sleek grey underlays receive slight metallic accents, sitting beneath opulent red panels that run through the mudguards, lacing systems, heel counters, and medial Swooshes. The rich tone also embraces the branded rear tabs, while standard white midsoles and rubber bottoms complete the design.
Take a first look at the Nike Dunk Low "UNLV" in the gallery above. The rendition is set to release later in 2023 via Nike and select retailers for $110 USD.
