Nike and Clark Atlanta University Cook Up Mismatched Dunk Lows

Clark Atlanta University (CAU for short) is one of the most storied HBCUs in the southern United States, created when Clark College and Atlanta University merged in 1988. Now, they're joining FAMU as an HBCU with their own special Dunk! Nike have created a special mismatched Dunk Low for CAU, and it's loaded with nods to the school's heritage and traditions.

Shown off in detail by sneaker leaker and sample collector @woganwodeyang, the Clark Atlanta University x Nike Dunk Low is dressed in the Panthers' black, grey and red colour scheme but features inversed colourblocking on each shoe for a unique effect. Though there's some heavy yin and yang detailing goin' on here, consistent details are provided by the red Swooshes and foxing, plus white nylon tongues and red collars.,

Regarding the shoe's special details, CAU's panther logo is emblazoned on the tongue tag and stamped under the icy see-through outsoles. An embroidered '1988' hit on the heel tab nods to the genesis of CAU in its modern form, and insoles feature a unique graphic print. They're not shown here but a second set of laces comes with these low-cut Dunks – and they feature a repeating print that reads 'FIND A WAY OR MAKE ONE,' the university's motto.

A release date for these special Dunks has yet to be revealed, but they may drop in the coming weeks as part of a larger pack alongside the above-mentioned FAMU Dunks. We'll be sure to keep you updated as more info surfaces.
