Detailed Looks at the All-Star Weekend “UNC” Air Jordan 1 Patent Leather
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 celebrate the monumentous occasion — and they’re doing so in a BIG way.
Joining the UNC versions of the Air Jordan 6, Air Jordan 4 and Air Jordan 9, is this Air Jordan 1 that surfaced today via @chickenwop_
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 we’re waiting on confirmation. Until then, swipe right below for a first look — which, like all first looks, is seemingly taken on a 2001 flip phone — but our photoshop render above gives you a better indication of what to expect from the release.
UPDATE // Detailed looks have now surfaced, you can peep them in the slide below.
Rumor has it that there also may be a UNC version of Don C’s Jordan 312, but that is yet to be confirmed.
