Leaked Look: The Air Jordan 1 'University Blue'
The Air Jordan 1 colourways keep on comin’, and 2021 will include a summery rendition in the famed ‘University Blue’ scheme. We first caught wind of this rendition back in May, with a speculative mock-up showing off a blue-blessed AJ1 with classic looks. Now, following a sneaky reveal of the actual shoe, it looks like those early predictions were pretty much spot on.
Revealed via leaker Wing Li, this Air Jordan 1 is dressed predominantly with ‘University Blue’ on the uppers – namely 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 we expect future pics to confirm that the front portion of the shoe will match the pictured rear section.
Fans of the AJ1 will recall the popular ‘Obsidian’ colourway from 2019, which bears similarities to this latest version. 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 that 2019 colourway to be chasing these come 2021.
No official release info has been revealed, but rumours suggest a drop sometime in February, 2021.
