The 2021 iteration of the Nike Dunk High SP ‘Syracuse’ brings back one of the OG colorways of the ‘Be True to Your School’ series from 1985.
The leather high-top is rendered in the signature hues of Syracuse University, featuring a crisp white base with contrasting Orange Blaze overlays.
Classic Nike branding makes its way to a woven tag atop a lightly padded nylon mesh tongue.
The high-top rides on a rubber cupsole, finished in the same two-tone color scheme utilized on the upper.
The company was founded on January 25, 1964, as Blue Ribbon Sports, by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight, and officially became Nike, Inc. on May 30, 1971.

Nike markets its products under its own brand, as well as Nike Golf, Nike Pro, Nike+, Air Jordan, Nike Blazers, Air Force 1, Nike Dunk, Air Max, Foamposite, Nike Skateboarding, Nike CR7, and subsidiaries including Brand Jordan, Hurley International and Converse.
