After photos of a Clark Atlanta x Nike Dunk colorway leaked onto the internet on June 30. Images of another HBCU-themed Nike Dunk have been spotted on sneakerhead social media, as images of a FAMU Nike Dunk are circulating online.
Florida A&M University is one of the most recognizable brands in the HBCU landscape and the Rattlers are no stranger to FAMU-inspired Nikes.
Florida A&M and Nike had previously released special edition Lebron 18 and Zoom Witness sneakers when FAMU Athletics and Nike unveiled the Lebron XIX’s in early 2022. A shoe the Rattlers wore on court during the 2022 season.
On July 1, 2022, the first look at the new Florida A&M x Nike Dunk Low “Family” was posted on the @Kicksdong Instagram account.
The FAMU Nike Dunk sports the unmistakable Florida A&M University orange and green colorway featuring a beige leather upper with orange overlay panels.
The classic green Nike Swoosh is branded to the sides and covered in specialty embroidery and logos, including the school’s Rattler mascot on the tongue label.
FAMU basketball uniforms already feature the LeBron James logo as part of a March 2021 deal. The Nike x FAMU deal covers all 14 Florida A&M athletic programs and the Marching 100 group.
Unlike the Lebron XIX FAMUs, the Florida A&M x Nike Dunk Low “Family” will be released to the public although no release details are currently available.
