It isn’t hard to see why a young Michael Jordan wanted his signature sneakers to only be in light blue colorways and not the ‘devils colors’ of Black/Red as originally pitched by Nike: those University of North Carolin hues just look so clean. The Air Jordan 29 Low is now slated to release in a Tar Heels theme just in time for the college basketball madness to start picking up its pace. The seventh-ranked team in the country always benefits from the Air Jordan connection, and here the gradient digitized elephant print lands on the Flyweave low-top upper in an original look. That light blue shade hits the toebox and eventually fades to a darker black by the heel while bold ’23’ branding lands on the leather back in a standout look. No word yet on a release date, but stay tuned for more right here on Sneaker News.
