A superstar before he even entered the NBA
A superstar before he even entered the NBA, His Airness, Michael Jordan, has never forgotten his route to stardom. Having spent three years lacing up for the UNC Tar Heels before declaring for the draft, Nike Jordan pays homage to the G.O.A.T.’s alma mater with this latest AJ1 release.
Constructed from premium leather and reminiscent of the college’s iconic on-court uniforms, this colourway sees two tones of blue split between the distinct panelling, with a touch of sail to the midfoot, tongue and toe-box as a mediating base. Staying true to its original 1985 form, this pair sits above the ankles – adding the necessary ankle support for dominating the hard wood – and wears the all-important Nike Air tongue tab; a move that’s sure to keep the sneakerheads happy and have this pair lusted after for years to come.
