The Air Jordan 1 has transcended sports to become the headliner of sneakers. Coupling together the budding years of Michael Jordan’s historic basketball career with a revered NBA significance, along with its casual wearability, have made the sneaker a favorite among sneaker casuals and hardcore fans alike. Returning back to MJ’s UNC playing days, his first signature sneaker gets doused in “University Blue.”
Among the highly coveted colorways, the UNC-inspired color pallets routinely inspire massive attention and fanfare. Here, a powder blue dresses the leather upper, while hints of white appear on the pair’s mid-paneling and toe box. Elsewhere, black accents find way to the heel, laces, and Nike Swoosh.
The Air Jordan 1 High University Blue is slated to release on March 6 for $170 through select retailers like SNS. Look for this to be one of the most coveted pairs of the year, so mark your calendars for 10 a.m. then.
