Jordan Brand has shown love to the Air Jordan 5 throughout 2022 with collaborations and new colorways from start to finish. Glancing at early 2023 plans, this looks to remain true as University of North Carolina colors will grace the model for the first time. Once again, the iconic color palette is used by the brand, which is only fitting considering the school serves as Michael Jordan’s alma matter.

Following an early look at the colorway, detailed images of the Air Jordan 5 “UNC” have now arrived. “Carolina Blue” covers the nubuck upper while silver accents land on the tongue and part of the midsole. Additional color diversity is provided by the rest of the midsole in black, translucent webbed window, black branding elements at the tongue and heel and a blue translucent finish on the rubber outsole. Lastly, the inside of the tongues read “HEART.” and “SOUL.” in flipped text.

A tentative release date of March 4 for this UNC-inspired Air Jordan 5 remains in place with an expected price of $225 USD via Nike and select retailers. Check out the pair above and keep an eye out for official information and images to come from Nike in the coming months.

Elsewhere in the world of footwear, a detailed look at the friends and family exclusive Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 in yellow has surfaced.
