Tar Heels fans rejoice. Jordan Brand is bringing back MJ’s first shoe in his classic alma-matters colorway that we’ve come to love. JB has been bringing the heat with Retro 1 OG’s this year, first the historic “Chicago” colorway then the new “Shattered Back Board” colorway took our love of black and orange to another level. Like its signature celebrity Drake said, “back to back like I’m on the cover of lethal weapon”, these two kicks killed the summer release lineup. There’s no doubt that the Retro 1 High has its level of significance, but they wouldn’t exist if Mike didn’t put in his time at UNC.
Everyone knows that classic UNC colorway of dark powder blue and white that has dominated the college court for years. The dark powder blue accents sitting atop the white premium leather upper really make the colorway stand out with such a clean, stylish appeal. We can’t forget the little details that we love as sneakerheads. The classic “Nike Air” branding on the tongue and insole, not to mention coming unlaced in the box like they did when first released. Make sure you add a little piece of Jordan history to your collection and grab the Air Jordan Retro 1 High OG “UNC” on October 10th at Finishline.com.
