Air Jordan 6 Retro UNC: University Blue Treatment

Air Jordan continues to stay true to the Nike brand and one more in the line of sneaker releases for the month of March is the Air Jordan 6 “UNC”. This sneaker will be dropped on March 5 just in time for the tournaments featuring Michael Jordan’s collegiate team, UNC Tar Heels.

The Air Jordan 6 Retro UNC colorway is an ode to Michael Jordan’s alma mater, the University of North Carolina. Splashes of the famous University Blue color have been present in many of the Air Jordan releases including the Air Jordan 1, 3, 4, 6, and 9. Continuing this trend, the Air Jordan 6 Retro UNC “University Blue” is on its way. This pair will be a white-based shoe filled with University Blue and having navy blue trim that was specific to the Air Jordan 6 “Carmine” colorway.

Air Jordan 6 Retro UNC features:

This sneaker pair is centered on the colors “University Blue/White/College Navy/Black” with White/Black Air-assisted midsoles and translucent blue rubber outsole segments. It has a university blue nubuck base with white leather overlays and navy details threaded throughout.

The branding elements in the Jordan 6 Retro UNC are Jumpman motifs on the lace toggles and tongues. “Air Jordan” text is present on the translucent tongue tags and woven tags at the rear.   

The patch on the heel color blocking detail was previously seen in the collegiate-inspired “Oregon” and “Michigan”, the Air Jordan 5s releases.

A tri-color print is supplied on both the inside and outside of the translucent tongue. The shoes come in a special powder blue box packing.

The Air Jordan University Blue 6s are designed by Tinker Hatfield, one of Nike’s most legendary sneaker designers. Working with Nike since 1981, his designs have elevated Nike’s Jordan and Air models to new heights pushing the boundary of technology and design. He holds a special relationship with Michael Jordan and this ensured Nike come out with game-changing designs in its sneakers. Continuing the prolific design streak, the Jordan 6 Retro UNC is one more from Tinker Hatfield’s exclusive Air Jordan 6 collection designs for Nike.
