Buy or Bye: Air Jordan 4 “University Blue”
Air Jordan 4 “University Blue”
For the first time, Michael Jordan’s alma mater’s colors make their way onto the Jordan 4. The UNC-inspired colorway features tech grey, white, black, and of course, the University Blue that adorns its name.
University Blue dominates the shoe like Jordan did the court. The genuine suede leather upper sits next to the mesh netting on the quarter panel and tongue bottom. Sticking with usual Jordan 4 tradition, the cement splatter finds its place on the heel tabs, wings, and midsole. Black eyelets and midsole trims contrast the lightly-colored silhouette to provide extra emphasis.
Besides the University Blue that is bound to catch any eye, the tongue brings something new to the table (or should we say shoe?). The white and grey tongue boasts a stitched woven jock tag with none other than #23, akin to the tag you have on the side of a jersey. Straying from the typical Jordan logo, this extra touch makes it really feel like you’re walking in Jordan’s UNC fit.
The Air Jordan 4 “University Blue” are set to drop on April 28, just after we all settle down from the madness of March. With a retail price tag set for $225, you can expect to find men’s and grade school sizes (if you act quickly enough)!
