Jordan Brand paid homage to MJ’s alma mater with the Air Jordan 1 High University Blue. The University Blue colorway is prominent in the Jordan 1’s history. The first UNC-inspired Jordan 1 dates back to 1985 when the Jordan 1 debuted. Since then, there have been numerous iterations of the UNC 1, most recently the Jordan 1 Retro High Fearless UNC To Chicago. Jumpman is building off of its past and switching it up this week with a new iteration.
The upper of the Air Jordan 1 High University Blue is composed of a white and black tumbled leather upper with University Blue Durabuck overlays. Following traditional Jordan 1 detailing, a Nike Air woven label is located on the tongue and an Air Jordan Wings Logo is printed on the ankle. A white midsole and University Blue outsole complete rejuvenated classic.
The Air Jordan 1 High University Blue released in March of 2021 and retailed for $170.
