With the white Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Jordan 1 expected to release in 2018, another new colorway isn’t out of the realm of possibility. Instagram leak source @py_rates has revealed new information about a potential drop of the sneaker in a University Blue colorway.

Little is known about the forthcoming Virgil Abloh x Nike releases for 2018. This potential leak could reveal the plans for future drops, with more colorways being released throughout the year instead of new silhouettes. Fellow sneaker-minded account @zsneakerheadz offered up a mock-up of the new Air Jordan 1 colorway, which would see the classic sneaker emblazoned with hits of UNC blue, instead of the usual black and red. The rest of the sneaker features the usual white leather.

Expected to retail for $190 USD, the release date is currently a vague “2018,” without any specifics. Stay tuned though, we’ll update you as soon as the news is revealed. Would you cop this colorway? What other models would you like to see get the Virgil Abloh x Nike treatment? Let us know below. In the meantime, Abloh’s Off-White™ is readying its own chunky sneaker as the trend continues into the new year.
