When the Air Jordan 1 Low “UNC Grey” came out in August, it got a lot of praise because its design was easy to compare to that of Union LA. And now, almost a month later, official pictures are sure to bring back the excitement.
The color scheme and tumbled leather lend a vintage feel
Like Chris Gibbs’s version of the Air Jordan 1, this pair is made up of two different colorways put together. Here, “University Blue” covers most of the forefoot, and an outsole in the same color sits under the foot. In contrast, grey is used to paint the tumbled leather overlays and the Swoosh, which looks like snakeskin. The pops of yellow on the Wings and Jumpman logos are both reminiscent of the work of the California-based boutique, as the color is often used to highlight the “UN/LA” tag on every collaborative silhouette.
The “UNC Grey” Air Jordan 1 Low lived up to its anticipation. This sneaker is simple, old school, and a perfect addition to any Air Jordan collection, thus its popularity is no surprise. This design may go into numerous Jordan collections, making it a versatile selection for any sneakerhead.
