For his third edition of the monumental Air Jordans 1, Virgil Abloh focused on the “UNC” colorway of Michael Jordans’s first signature shoe. Released in June 2018, the Air Jordans 1 “UNC” features the recognizable white and Carolina blue leather upper. The colors are complemented by Abloh’s deconstructed aesthetic and signature details such as bright orange detailing and a red zip tie. Like the “Chicago” and all-white colorways before it, the Air Jordans 1 “UNC” was an instant hit that was coveted by sneaker connoisseurs around the globe.
