Nike is no stranger to drawing inspiration from the college ranks, as evidenced by its long history of releasing school-themed colorways of its popular sneakers. The latest model to receive the college treatment is the Dunk Low, which has been reimagined in the colors of Florida A&M University.
The Nike Dunk Low Florida A&M is covered in the school’s colors of white, orange, and green. The upper is constructed from white leather with orange overlays, laces, and lining. The sides are adorned with green Swooshes, and the tongues feature the school’s rattlesnake mascot. Text behind the tongue tags, 1887 (the year the university was founded) embroidered on the heels, and “COLAC” (College of Love and Charity) on the lateral forefoot are all details. The design is completed by a graphic translucent outsole.
This release is significant for students of FAMU because it gives them a sense of pride and representation. It also shows that Nike’s willingness to invest in HBCUs schools and provide them with opportunities to showcase their culture and tradition through sneakers. It is a way for students to connect with their school and feel like they are part of something bigger. In a time when many college students are struggling to find their identity, this can be a powerful tool for Nike to build loyalty among young adults.
The swoosh has always been good at creating shoes that have meaning and purpose beyond just being aesthetically pleasing. The Dunk Low “Florida A&M” is a perfect example of this. It is a shoe that speaks to the school’s history and tradition while also providing its students with a sense of pride and belonging. This is why Nike continues to be one of the most successful sneaker brands in the world. They understand that sneakers are about more than just fashion; they’re about connection and community.

Total projected=2701 pairs, the shoe is relatively limited. I’ll adjust the numbers within the next 72 hours. Now let’s talk about its resale value.
Dunk Low FAMU: Resale Value
There were only 6 pairs sold so far at the average sale price of $396. The sample size is small but that shouldn’t prevent us from coming up with a solid projection of the resale value of the shoes. Let’s see what sellers are asking for it first.
Based on the records above, the average seller’s asking price is about $608, extremely high. But let’s see what buyers are willing to pay for it.
For most shoes, when I check for buyers’ offers, they are usually below the MSRP. This is one of the rare times buyers are actually offering more than 58% above retail for a shoe. This speaks volume about how the shoe is going to perform. The average buyer’s offer is about $222. Let me mention also that for this shoe, the demand is currently higher than the supply ( the number of buyers is higher than the number of sellers). To project the resale value, we’ll compute the average between sellers and buyers.
Resale Value Projected= ($608 + $222)/2=$415
The resale value will probably lie within the $280- $500 interval with profit margins between $128 and $327. This leads to mark ups between 100% and 256% ( 7 to17 times above average). What can we conclude about the FAMU Nike Dunk Low?
This is probably the best shoe to resell this month, the margins will be incredible and larger sizes will obviously return the highest earnings. This shoe is also going to continue to grow in value as time progresses. Acquire as many pairs as possible if you can.
