Nike By You

Last year was all about the Nike Dunk and 2021 is set to continue to push the silhouette even further. Sneakerheads of yesteryear will remember the NikeID days where you could take some of Nikes most popular casual and basketball sneakers and customise them to match your outfit or team to perfection. Nike By You will appear very familiar, you will have the option to customise the basketball-turned-lifestyle model into a model that satisfies your every desire. You will have the choice of suede, smooth, and pebbled leather uppers, and a variety of colours including the staple gum outsole.

Don’t get too ahead of the game though, there’s a sly catch to help out the sneaker collectors and resellers. You can’t simply recreate last year’s two-toned “Be True To Your School” college colourways. So unless you want to take the sneaker to a shoe surgeon and have that toebox corrected in white there won’t be any “Syracuse” dunks for you. Sneaker OG’s will remember the days of NikeID where this was simply part and parcel of the design process.
