The last time Michael Jordan wore the Jordan 1 in an NBA game was during his final season with the Chicago Bulls in 1998. But in spite of the fact that the Jordan 1 hasn’t been relevant on the basketball court in a quarter of a century, the classic sneaker is as popular as it was when Jordan wore the shoe for that final time in a Bulls uniform against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, and even when the shoe was on Jordan’s feet during his rookie season way back in 1985. 

Among the many reasons why is because of Jordan Brand’s commitment to honoring both Jordan and his first signature shoe’s legacy, which is exactly what happens on one of the most anticipated sneakers of the summer: the ''Jordan 1 High OG UNC Toe''.

Inspired by the Jordan 1’s original “UNC” and “Black Toe” colorways, the latter of which was worn regularly by Jordan as a rookie with the Bulls, the new “UNC Toe” features a similar color block as the “Black Toe,” but with North Carolina Tar Heels blue on its leather overlays. The results, as you can see, are one clean-looking shoe.

Jordan Brand’s “UNC” theme is certainly nothing new at this point, but it’s still one of the most popular color combinations to hit any retro Air Jordan model, especially the Jordan 1. The shoe’s timely release in the middle of the summer should only help the “UNC Toe’s” hype, as we here at Stadium Goods anticipate the colorway to be one of the biggest sellers of July.

What we’re really saying is, if you’re looking to pick up the ''Jordan 1 High OG UNC Toe'' for your collection, you should do so immediately. Well, maybe after spending a few seconds scrolling through some of the photos of the “UNC Toe” recently taken by the talented Stadium Goods photography team.
