Inspired by a player exclusive colorway, this Air Jordan 4 Retro is a must-have
There’s no getting around it: Jordan Brand has been on a hot streak with blue colorways.
In the past 12 months, we’ve seen at least seven releases utilizing blue in one shade or another.
Whether it’s University Blue (Air Jordan 1 and 9), Hyper Royal (AJ 1 and 14), other combinations of royal (AJ 13 ‘Black Royal,’ AJ 1 ‘Royal Toe’) or the AJ 3 Midnight Navy, Jumpman has been all about those shades.
So I hope you’re ready for one more.
In the world of basketball sneakers, few things are more highly coveted than the Player Exclusive, or PE, models.
Unless you’re a college or professional athlete, chances are pretty slim that you’re getting your hands on a PE colorway.
The forthcoming release is based off of a player-exclusive release from 2019 which has deep ties to Michael Jordan’s legacy.
The Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘University Blue,’ dressed in that iconic powder-blue shade worn by University of North Carolina Tar Heels athletes (such as, y’know, MJ himself back in the ’80s.)
While the PE version bore the school’s branding, as they always do, this general release model will trade UNC tongue logos for woven Jordan Brand tags.
The gorgeous suede uppers in University Blue are set off by Tech Grey cement-speckled midsoles, heel tabs and wings as well as black and white detailing.
Arriving in Men’s and Kids’ sizing, the Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘University Blue’ might not be a PE, but it’s a beautiful addition to your collection all the same.
