Time to shop: Jordan is launching a fresh Retro 1 in Michael Jordan’s alma-matter’s colors this week and it’s a true must-cop. If this colorway seems familiar, it’s because a patent-leather version of it launched earlier this year for the ladies – you’re up, gents. Everyone knows the Retro 1 High has become a fashion icon over the years – but it’s fair to say they wouldn’t exist if MJ didn’t succeed at UNC. So this nod from Jordan was a long time coming.
This needs to be at the top of your wish list if you’re a UNC fan. Featuring Sail leather on the upper with Obsidian and University Blue overlays, this incoming heat is quite similar to the women’s style from February, but with a full leather upper instead of patent leather. A Sail leather upper is complemented by Obsidian leather on the toe, eyelets, ankle collar, and Swoosh. All of this topped off with University Blue ankle straps and heel area, making this a drop you can’t skip.
