this featured suede material clad in “University Blue” flair across its entire upper as a nod to MJ’s alma mater, the University of North Carolina.. Mesh and TPU components momentarily interrupt the arrangement, but the hairy construction steals the spotlight on the upcoming Air Jordan.
A reflective silver finish appears on the top of the tongue like it did upon the sneaker’s debut in 1990, while the outsole underfoot indulges in an icy blue finish that complements the titular University of North Carolina-inspired color well.
Traditional branding on the spine is replaced with a modern Team Jumpman patch; inner-lining takes on a mesh build that also delivers an updated design cue to the third signature sneaker for Michael Jordan created by Tinker Hatfield. “Heart” and “Soul” wording behind the tongues atop a Black midsole with Grey speckling and icy translucent outsole completes the design.
