The Michigan Wolverines‘ navy and maize color scheme is one of the most recognizable in all of collegiate sports, and those vivid hues are front and center on its latest Jordan Brand PE: an Air Jordan 1. This ultra-exclusive PE was originally teased by the U of M itself back in December, but a truly detailed look reveals its special embellishments and high-end construction.

Crisp white quarter panels made of shaggy suede provide an anchor point for the design, then immediately branch out into the signature shades of Ann Arbor’s beloved squad. Stingray leather is used on the bright yellow heels, collar flaps and toebox, while rich navy croc leather graces eyestays, mudguards and collars.

Branding is handled by yellow midfoot Swooshes plus navy Air Jordan ball-and-wings logos on the collar flaps, and a school-specific Michigan M logo replaces the standard Nike Air graphic on the left shoe’s tongue tag. White midsoles and yellow outsoles finalize the look. Select images also show a comparison to the Wolverines’ ultra-rare Air Jordan 3 PE that first debuted in 2017.

Joining similar styles created for the Georgetown Hoyas, Oklahoma Sooners, UNC Tar Heels and Florida Gators, these ultra-rare player editions will not see a retail release, as they’re for Michigan athletes and coaches only. However, the Wolverines’ signature color scheme has also directly inspired several Air Jordans since the two began their partnership in 2015, ranging from PSNY’s special Air Jordan 12s to the Air Jordan 5 “Inspire.”

Take a detailed look at the grail status sneaker above. For more from Jordan Brand, check out official images of the Air Jordan 1 “Game Royal.”
