Update March 24, 2022: Official images have just come through confirming that the Nike Dunk Low 'UCLA' is happening! However, there are no updates to share on the red 'USC' pair as of yet. Stay locked to SF, we'll provide you with more information as the release dates near.
There may not be a collegiate rivalry more heated on the USA's West Coast than the one between the UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans. Hoops, football, baseball – you name it, and the competition is fierce. Intentionally or otherwise, Nike's latest Dunk Low colourways appear to pay homage to both the Bruins and the Trojans, as each features a colour scheme that's closely associated with one of the schools.
The UCLA-esque Dunk is the more colourful of the two pairs, combining bright yellow and sporty blue to lock in its look. On the other end, the USC-adjacent Dunk opts for a white base with elegant crimson accents, and adds a pop of flair with a dash of gold on its tongue tag. Of course, there was a Dunk Low 'Midas Gold' revealed last year that had some USC vibes of its own, and a Dunk Low 'Sail/Coast' that could also be considered UCLA adjacent, but hey: nobody's against running a rivalry back!
At the time of writing, a release date for this duo of Dunk Lows has yet to be announced. However, due to the presence of images on the Foot Locker website, they're likely to arrive in the coming weeks. Expect to pay $100 per pair if you're looking to add 'em to your collection.
