Another Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “University Blue” Expected In July 2023

There are still a few weeks left in 2022, yet NIKE, Inc. items for the next year keep popping up. The most recent? A pair of Air Jordan 1 Retro High OGs with “University Blue” accents on the toe.

An early mock-up of the pair shows it looking somewhat like the “Obsidian/University Blue” style that dropped in August 2019. However, the upcoming sneakers promise a blue that is much more reminiscent of the Air Jordan. They have been popular among fans of the University of North Carolina (UNC) since 1985. Additionally, the speculated Air Jordan 1 is anticipated to feature the named collegiate color at the toebox and outsole. It is a design decision that, if made, will further set the sneaker apart from earlier models. As a nod to the “Black Toe” option that helped debut Michael Jordan’s first trademark shoe to the world 37 years ago. Moreover, it panels around the forefoot and, along the tongue. Also, at the collar add “Black” contrast to the design.
