Model: Air Jordan 6 “UNC”
Release Date: March 5 2022
Editor's Notes: It's safe to say Nike certainly has an affinity for "Carolina Blue," the official Pantone donned by the University of North Carolina. The "UNC" color scheme of blue and white has found itself donning some of the Swoosh's most popular silhouettes, from the Air Jordan 1 High to the Dunk Low.
Given its classic blocking scheme and easy wearability, any sneaker donning a "UNC" makeup is an easy winner, and releases under the name have typically found fetching a pretty penny on the secondary market.
Next in the line for a college-inspired makeup is the classic Air Jordan 6. Unlike the silhouettes of choice before it, the AJ6 switches out a full leather construction for a mix of "University Blue" nubuck with white leather overlays. The pairing bears a striking resemblance to the popular AJ6 "Carmine" which featured red paneling in place of blue.
Secondary hits of navy blue adorn the midsole, lace toggle, heel tab, and Air Jordan branding at the midfoot. Icy blue outsole portions then provide the finishing touches you'd expect from any Air Jordan 6.
