Best Look Yet: Air Jordan 1 'University Blue' Rumoured for 2021
The iconic Air Jordan 1 doesn't look like it's slowing down in 2021, with a summery rendition in the famed ‘University Blue’ scheme rumoured for early in the year. We first heard about it back in May, with a speculative mock-up showing off a blue-blessed AJ1 with classic looks. Now, following a mysterious leaked image of the actual shoe, we've finally got a decent look at the entire colourway.
Revealed via sneakertigger on IG, this simple yet satisfying take is dressed predominantly with ‘University Blue’ on the uppers – most notably on the heel, ankle collar, mudguard, and eye stays. The mid panel is done in white, delivering a clean look, while the Swoosh, laces, and lining are black for contrast. Overall, it’s a familiar look from the Jumpman, and promises to be a worthy addition to the ever-growing AJ1 canon.
Fans of the AJ1 will recall the popular ‘Obsidian’ colourway from 2019, which bears similarities to this latest ‘University Blue’ rendition. After a lukewarm debut, that aforementioned take has evolved to become quite sought-after on the secondary market. We expect those who missed out on the 2019 colourway to be chasing these come 2021.
No official release info has been revealed, but rumours suggest a drop sometime in February, 2021.
