From the ground up

Rumors of the Virgil Abloh x Air Jordan 1 in a “UNC” colorway first began to swirl months ago, but another bit of information has now surfaced regarding the coveted sneaker. Instagram account, @py_rates, only recently published detailed release info on the potential Nike collaboration. It is hard to testify the truth of this information for now, as nothing official has been announced by either Nike or Virgil Abloh himself.

As the release was preceded by a European-exclusive Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Jordan 1 in white, this next drop could be slated for a US-exclusive release.

See the post below.

It indicates a price tag of $190 for the “University Blue” sneaker, wrought in a White/Cone/Dark Powder Blue scheme. A possible release date of May 2018 is set, though no other details regarding retailers have emerged as of yet. Stay posted for further information.
