The UNC colors have become almost as iconic as the school’s status itself, holding the honor of housing the culturally iconic Michael Jordan while inspiring a heartfelt array of sneaker colorways. Usually reserved for Jordan Brand offerings — the likes of the beloved AJ1 and many others — the tooling is now seeing its way to some of Beaverton’s other icons, namely the Air Max 90. Using the light baby blue hue in moderation, the pair opts for a color blocking that allows it shine on its own. Mudguards, lining, heel tab branding, as well as the topmost eye stay component align in the cool tone while adjacent panelling do little along the vibrancy spectrum. Dark midnight navy leathers see the most use from the toe cap to the top line, showing off an ever-so-slight sheen, while tightly wound mesh across the toe box and ankle add lightness by way of a blinding white shade. Grab a detailed look at the pair right below and expect to see it hitting select retailers and Nike.com very soon.
