Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG ‘UNC’: A Tribute to Michael Jordan’s Alma Mater

Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG

The Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG ‘UNC’ is a tribute to Michael Jordan’s alma mater and one of the most anticipated sneakers of the year. This pair utilizes a leather upper that combines a white base with contrasting black accents on the forefoot overlay and signature Swoosh. The heel panel is finished in Dark Powder Blue, matching the rubber outsole and woven Nike Air tongue tag. A retro Wings logo on the heel tab maintains the shoe’s OG aesthetic.

What is so unique about this sneaker is that it features a blue rubber outsole, which is a nod to the Carolina blue that’s synonymous with Jordan’s alma mater. The white leather upper and black overlays are a classic color combination on the Air Jordan I, and one that always looks good no matter how it’s styled.

Michael Jordan’s alma mater is the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which is also where he played his college basketball. The Air Jordan I was first released in 1985, and since then, there have been many different iterations and colorways of the shoe. However, this particular colorway is a tribute to Jordan’s alma mater and pays homage to the school’s colors.

If you’re a fan of the Air Jordan I or if you’re a fan of UNC, then this is definitely a sneaker that you need to add to your collection.
