The Nike Dunk High Goes Green with Upcoming “Celtics” ColorwayPublished:
July 04, 2022
The Boston Celtics are one of the National Basketball Association’s most storied franchises. In their more than 70-year history, the team from Beantown has claimed 17 NBA Championships, which leaves them tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for the most titles ever won by a franchise.
This past season, the team had a chance to secure their 18th Larry O’Brien Trophy. However, their efforts were thwarted by a seasoned Golden State Warriors team who shelved the C’s championship aspirations in 6 games.
That’s obviously not how the franchise wanted their season to end. But if it’s any consolation, there’s a new Nike Dunk coming that celebrates the team from Boston – they did win the Eastern Conference Finals, after all.
Set to land in grade-school sizing, the forthcoming Nike Dunk High “Celtics” dons the club’s classic green-and-white color scheme. The base is done in crisp white leather, with green leather overlaid at the forefoot, eyestays, and heels. The two-toned base is then offset by black Swoosh overlays, tongues, and laces.
The colorway is finished with midsoles made of white rubber, capped off by green rubber outsoles which are speckled with recycled Nike Grind.
The Nike Dunk Low “Celtics” will be available in-stores and online at DTLR.com July 7th in grade-school sizing. Retail is set at $100.
