The University of North Carolina has been the influence for a lot of Jordan Brand’s releases this year including, the latest, Converse x Air Jordan Pack that focused on the early days of Mike’s legendary career. Now, we have the release of the Air Jordan VI ‘University Blue’ AKA ‘UNC’ to look forward to this holiday season. We’ve seen the sneaker a multitude of times over the past several weeks but it wouldn’t hurt to break down the anticipated silhouette an additional time.
The color blocking and balance of this particular colorway is what we admire most about the sneaker. It’s crisp, clean, and proportional to the point the sneaker isn’t doing too much but, still has eye-catching ability with a minimal amount of contrast displayed. The kicks feature a black nubuck base complete with all the necessary perforations, ‘University Blue’ accents that hit the midsole, heel pull tab, Jumpman logo on the satin shroud, and lacelocks that sit at the center of the sneaker. White accents grace the midsole while a creamy semi-transparent and partially translucent outsole round out the kicks.
As for the official release date… Come December 23rd, the ‘UNC’ AKA ‘University Blue’ Air Jordan VI will be available for the masses for a retail price tag of $190. Let us know if these joints made your holiday must cop list in the comment section below.
