This Nike Dunk Low Pays Homage to the World’s Oldest Basketball Court

In one of it's upcoming releases, Nike is honoring history by giving their classic basketball sneaker, the Dunk Low, a new look.

According to SoleCollector, the exclusive sneaker is modeled after a basketball court that lies in the basement of a Parisian YMCA. The Rue de Trevise court dates back to 1893 and is said to be the world's oldest basketball court. Pretty dope, huh?

The sneaker comes in "Elemental Gold" or "Ale Brown" colorways, made to look like the court's weathered wood. It is wrapped with a woven-like texture, while the classic Nike swoosh is stitched on to the side, gaining its inspiration from old-fashioned basketballs.

JUst 200 pairs of each colorway will be available, so you may want to act fast. The limited Nike Dunk Low is available now at SNKRS.com for $130.
