[UPDATE] May 25, 2018 07.01 a.m. EST: If you missed out on Nike’s surprise drop for the Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Jordan 1 “UNC” yesterday, you might be in with a second chance. The sportswear giant has since updated the SNKRS app and is now offering exclusive invites to select shoppers. To see if you’ve received one, check your SNKRS app now.

The title has been changed to reflect the update. Read on for the original report below.

If you’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Virgil Abloh‘s UNC-flavored Air Jordan 1, hopefully you lucked out today and took advantage of the sneaker’s surprise drop. The much-anticipated shoe was in turn made available — with no prior notification — via Nike‘s SNKRS app.

The Jordans were expected to arrive May 30, as the sneaker had been listed on a number of Nike’s international launch sites, although the Swoosh never disclosed a specific date. We suspect, however, that the Air Jordan 1 “UNC” will be made available at a later time.

Nonetheless, let us know if you scooped a pair of the highly-coveted Abloh-designed J’s earlier today.
