Jordan Brand will no doubt never stop paying tribute to MJ’s alma mater, as Jumpman ‘heads can look forward to the Air Jordan 11 Low “UNC” returning next year. Upon debuting back in 2001, the patent leather pair is slated for a comeback, albeit with slight modifications.

As you can see, the forthcoming variation boasts a blue tint applied to the translucent sole unit, while all in all, the the blue accents on the low-tops differ a bit, going from “Columbia Blue” to now being referred to as “University Blue.”

For now, no specific release date has been confirmed, but expect the Air Jordan 11 Low “UNC” to arrive some time in Summer 2017.
