The latest Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG iteration to join upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019 will be dressed up in a “UNC” color scheme. Of course, this is not the first time that Jordan Brand has released an Air Jordan 1 iteration that draws inspiration from Michael Jordan’s alma mater, the University of North Carolina. While the color blocking and scheme of these iterations has always varied over the years, they usually always feature the hue that has become known as Carolina Blue, also referred to as University Blue. The Air Jordan 1 colorway seen here looks almost exactly like another “UNC” iteration that recently hit the shelves.
The iteration mentioned above was the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG WMNS “UNC.” The colorway initially made its retail debut in Europe on February 2nd, 2019 and later hit the shelves worldwide on Valentine’s Day, i.e. February 14th, 2019, retailing at the price of $160. It was available in women’s 5 to 12 sizes, which is the equivalent of men’s 3.5 to 10.5 sizes. The overall color scheme of this iteration consisted of Blue Chill, Obsidian and White. Above all, its uppers were completely made up glossy patent leather. That patent Air Jordan 1 WMNS “UNC” should still be available at after-market prices on eBay and Stadium Goods.
The most obvious difference between the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “UNC” colorway featured here and the one described above is the fact that its uppers are made up of traditional leather. The color blocking is undoubtedly the same and the color scheme also looks almost identical, apart from one minor exception. Obsidian and White can still be spotted on the same areas, but instead of Chill Blue, its color scheme includes University Blue. Moreover, its toeboxes are plain White and its outsoles are covered in Obsidian. This Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “UNC” iteration will be among this summer’s Air Jordan releases 2019 in August.
