The “UNC” Air Jordan 1 Patent Leather Release Has Been Pushed Back
Homage to Home.
Earlier this year we reported that there was not one, not two, not three but FOUR UNC-themed Air Jordans arriving to celebrate All-Star Weekend in Charlotte, NC.
The city of Charlotte is hosting the 2019 All-Star weekend, which is, of course, Mike’s first time hosting the even as a team owner. The city is also down the road from Mike’s Alma Mater, the University of North Carolina. So it only seems fitting that Jordan Brand celebrates the momentous occasion — and they’re doing so in a BIG way.
Like the “Gold Toe” release from February this year, it too receives a full patent leather upper, this time in the traditional “Black Toe” color blocking. It swaps out the black for navy blue and the gold for University Blue and it’s finished off with a white midsole and University Blue outsole.
At this stage, it’s said to be a Women’s exclusive, but there are rumors flying around about a Men’s pair, with black wings logos like the image above. Rumor has it that there also may be a UNC version of Don C’s Jordan 312, but neither is yet to be confirmed.
Release Update // Pairs of the Women’s exclusive Air Jordan 1 Patent Leather “UNC” will now release on Valentine’s Day, February 14th, 2019 at select stores and on Nike.com. Stay tuned for our comprehensive Where to Buy guide.
