This year has seen a resurgence of the iconic Air Jordan 6, featuring the Travis Scott collaboration, and revival of iconic retro silhouettes such as the “Electric Green“, “Midnight Navy” and “Motorsports” models. It now seems the momentum will carry on to 2022 as a new iteration of the highly coveted Air Jordan 6 “UNC” Retro is rumored to release prior to March Madness next year.
This high top bears heavy resemblance to the color-blocking patterns of the Jordan 6 “Carmine” designed by the fabled Tinker Hatfield. With white, navy, and “University Blue” hues, the shoe pays homage to Michael Jordan‘s alma mater at the University of North Carolina. A “TEAM” Jordan patch is seen on the heel corresponding to school-inspired releases such as the “Michigan” and “Oregon” Air Jordan 5s. It’s worth noting that the pair pictured above is a mock-up and the final release version may be vastly different.
According to sneaker insider zSneakersHeadz, the “UNC” Air Jordan 6 Retro is expected to retail for $200 USD and release on March 5, 2022. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
