Tar Heel fans rejoice. Jordan Brand is dropping a fresh Retro 1 in MJ’s classic alma-matters colorway that is too good not to love. JB has been bringing the heat with their Retro 1’s this year, after starting off strong with the release of the ‘Turbo Green’ Retro 1 during NBA All-Star weekend and many more since, this next pair may top them all. If this Retro 1 seems familiar, it’s because back in February the ladies got blessed with an all patent leather pair of 1’s in this colorway. 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.
If you’re a UNC fan you’re gonna love this Retro 1 as it comes dressed in a Sail, Obsidian, and University Blue color scheme that is just too clean. This Air Jordan 1 has a lot of similarities to the women’s release that dropped back in February but instead of having a patent leather build, this pair comes in full leather. It features Sail leather on the upper with Obsidian and University Blue overlays. This pair comes done up with a Sail leather upper that is complemented by Obsidian leather on the toe, eyelets, ankle collar, and Swoosh. University Blue dons the ankle straps and heel area and sets off the tongue with ‘Nike Air’ branding on each tag.
Grab your pair of the Air Jordan Retro 1 High OG ‘Obsidian & University Blue′ on August 31st at Finishline.com. Raffle winners may pick up their pair from the store they picked for the reservation.
