This Air Jordan 1 Low Gives “UNC” Color-Blocking A Grey Twist

Thanks to the rise in popularity of the Air Jordan 1 and Nike Dunk, as well as high-profile collaborations, the Air Jordan 1 Low has become one of the most-coveted sneaker silhouettes currently on the market. Recently, the lifestyle take on #23’s first signature shoe appeared in a colorway colloquially dubbed “UNC Grey.”

Colors inspired by the University of North Carolina Tar Heels, Michael Jordan’s once-home, aren’t new to Jumpman-related footwear, but the newly-surfaced pair remixes a heritage-inspired look. The sneaker’s forefoot area resembles traditional “University Blue”-clad retros, but the panels along the tongue and around the heel introduce a disparate grey into the mix. Exposed foam tongues work with “Wings” insignias at the spine and midsoles underfoot to deliver an aged look via their heavily-yellowed finishes. Lastly, oft-imitated outsoles don one last hit of vibrant college-friendly blue, rounding out the “UNC Grey” ensemble.

For more from under the Jumpman umbrella, the Air Jordan 37 is expected to debut before the 2022-23 NBA season begins.
