As the rumored release date of August 10 quickly approaches, better photos of the forthcoming collaborative model have surfaced. Dressed in the same colors of Michael Jordan’s alma mater, the upper sees a mix of white contrasted with Carolina Blue overlays. Additionally the blue tone dresses the outsole, while the midsole keeps its clean white colorway. Finally the sneaker is embellished with Koston’s signature on the inner tongue tabs.
Check out the latest photos and original story of Eric Koston’s New Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Low “UNC” below.
Original Story (July 26, 2019): After officially debuting the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Low “Midnight Navy” in early June, it looks like pro-skater Eric Koston and the Swoosh have another collaboration on the way, this time in the famed “UNC” colorway.
The “North Carolina” edition — which is also the original colorway of the AJ1 and pays homage to Michael Jordan’s alma mater — was recently spotted on Koston as he posed with a group of teenaged boys. From the photos, it looks like the miniature Jumpman logo on the toe has been removed. According to the post’s caption, the “UNC” edition could be arriving on August 10 for a retail price of $110 USD. Peep the photo below and keep it locked here for more details surrounding the potential Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Low “UNC” when they surface.
