The Air Jordan 1 has seen a resurgence to peek popularity this year. Due in no small part to the sneaker’s wearability, a slew of really great releases and the fact that the remastered pairs are being constructed¬†beautifully (thank you, Jordan Brand).

All that being said, the upcoming retro Air Jordan 1 “UNC” has the internet’s heart ‘a flutter. Following up the equally exciting “Shattered Backboard” Jordan 1s, this UNC colorway pays homage to Jordan’s time as a Tar Heel. As this exclusive early photo set reveals, the quality and craftsmanship are right up to par with the aforementioned (and widely praised)¬†“Shattered Backboards,” which is certain to make the hype for these even more wild!

Sound off in the comments below and let us know if you’re excited for this release. Thanks to¬†JsForDays for letting us get some early shots. Stay tuned for a detailed video review and on-foot in the near future!
