The phrase ‘Be True to Your School’ is familiar to most sneakerheads, even if they don’t know its origins trace back to a 1963 Beach Boys single. In common parlance, it’s come to refer to the OG Nike Dunk High styles, a series of simply-blocked collegiate designs also known as the ‘Original 7’. Styles like the ‘Iowa/Goldenrod’ stand out as icons of modern basketball design, but the Dunk has survived over a quarter-century because it can handle those patterns amongst a bevy of other options. For example, this new run of Dunk iD ‘Be True’ samples gives you the ability to choose the classic blend or switch to a more contemporary template as a reflection of the new and more school colors on display at the NCAA Tournaments. Prime your imagination by checking them out after the jump and get ready for these new choices on NIKEiD on March 20th.
