Another great Air Jordan 1 colorway is coming this year.
In just a few short months, Jordan Brand has dominated the conversation when it comes to sneakers this year. No brand has killed it quite like the Jumpman has. This is thanks to a plethora of great OG releases, as well as new silhouettes and new colorways of models from the past. One of the shoes that Jordan Brand has given a ton of shine to this year is the Air Jordan 1, which makes sense because it's amongst the most popular models on the Air Jordan library.
Early this week, a photoshop rendering of a new "UNC & Obsidian" colorway hit the internet, which sent sneakerheads into a tizzy. Now, thanks to some brand new images courtesy of @solebyjc, we have some in-person images of what this brand new model will look like. As you can see from the posts below, the shoe has white on the sides and on the toe box. Obsidian overlays and a Carolina blue back heel add pops of color to the sneaker.
In many ways, this model is reminiscent of the "Blue Chill" colorway that dropped during All-Star weekend back in February. So far the rumored release date is August 17th, although nothing has been confirmed.
Stay tuned for any updates as we will be sure to provide them.
