The Clark Atlanta University x Nike Dunk Low ‘Panthers’ DR6189-001 sneaker celebrates the rich legacy and culture of the South’s first Historically Black College and University (HBCU). The shoe’s design features an eye-catching and unconventional color-blocking pattern, incorporating CAU’s signature school colors. The Panthers, the university’s fierce and beloved mascot, is prominently displayed on the woven tongue tag and the translucent rubber outsole, adding a touch of school spirit to the shoe’s overall aesthetic.
Heather Lynn Haynes, the talented designer behind this collaborative effort, masterfully captured the essence of CAU’s history and traditions through her design choices. The ‘Find a Way or Make One’ motto, a phrase that has become synonymous with the school’s tenacity and determination, is proudly emblazoned on the laces. The sneaker also pays homage to a significant milestone in the university’s history, as the heel tab features a stitched ‘1988,’ commemorating the year when Atlanta University and Clark College merged to form Clark Atlanta University.
This limited-edition sneaker is part of a broader collection that honors and celebrates the rich cultural heritage and contributions of HBCUs. The Clark Atlanta University x Nike Dunk Low ‘Panthers’ is not just a shoe; it’s a symbol of the perseverance and resilience of Black excellence, reminding wearers to always ‘find a way or make one.’ Whether you’re a student, alumnus, or simply a fan of the CAU Panthers, this shoe is a must-have for any sneakerhead or collector.
