With the unstoppable demand of all-things-University Blue still at its peak, the Air Jordan 6 “UNC” has been touted as one of the must-have sneakers of 2022. This UNC Jordan 6 continues a series of Retro releases inspired by college Player Editions, with venerated college athletic programs such as Michigan, Oregon, and Georgetown represented regularly through this well-concepted string of drops.
The upper features the high-contrast blocking of University Blue and white, while black colors in the interior lining and the spoiler-inspired heel pull-tabs. A transparent tongue makes way for a tribal pattern commonly associated with the Air Jordan 7, only to be repeated on the insoles. Finally, the jersey patch is stitched onto the heel, giving the shoes the performance-ready aesthetic.
