Original Story (09/01/22): It appears that Nike has an HBCU pack of Dunk Lows on the way. Following the reveals of the Florida A&M University and Clark Atlanta University colorways, we now have a first look at the Dunk Low dedicated to Tennessee State University.
The TSU Dunk Low comes in a black red, blue, and yellow color scheme. There are a few nods to the TSU Tigers throughout the shoe, such as the team’s logo on the tongue tags, the tiger print on the shoelaces, and the “Tiger Pride” branding on the tiger-striped insoles. The shoe also features 1912 on the heels, the year the university was founded. As a final touch, the TSU motto “Think. Work. Serve.” is hidden on the insides of the tongue tags.
Grab a first look at the Nike Dunk Low “TSU” below. Expect these and the other colorways in the HBCU pack to release later this year on Nike.com and at select retailers. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
