It’s no secret that one of the best perks for the UNC Basketball program is having access to Air Jordan shoes with the university being sponsored by Jordan Brand.
Over the years we have seen numerous UNC-inspired colorways of popular Air Jordan models with some being available to players and staff only, while others have released to the public. Just in the past year alone we have seen a few different Air Jordan shoes release in the awesome Carolina Blue colorway as Jordan paid homage to his alma-mater.
And it appears as if we are set to get another in 2022.
In the past few days a new colorway of the retro Air Jordan 6 shoe has surfaced and it pays homage to UNC. The Air Jordan 6 “UNC” is set to be released in 2022 per multiple sneaker websites. Instagram account zSneakerheadz first tweeted about the release, showing a mockup of what the pair is likely to look like.
NOTE: This is NOT a final design but instead a rendering.
This isn’t the first time the Air Jordan 6 has had a “UNC” feel to it either. A pair released in 2017 that featured a black upper with Carolina Blue accents throughout. This version will likely feature a white upper with Carolina and Navy accents throughout.
The render also shoes the retro Nike tag that was featured on the recently released Air Jordan 4 “UNC” colorway back in late April as well.
There is no set release date for the shoe but expect a price tag of $200 on it and a release set for some retail stores like FinishLine, Champs Sports, Nike and the Nike SNKRS app.
