On-Foot Look: The Air Jordan 1 ‘University Blue’Release: 20 February 2021
Officially revealed as part of Jordan Brand’s Spring 2021 lineup, this Air Jordan 1 comes through in a eye-pleasing ‘University Blue’ scheme, which is sure to garner plenty of attention come release time. We first heard about it back in May, with a speculative mock-up showing off a blue-blessed AJ1 with classic looks. Now, after plenty of a closer looks, we’ve finally got a quality on-foot pictorial.
Revealed via stylelikekay 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.
Look for the Air Jordan 1 High OG ‘University Blue’ to release on February 20 next year. The retail price is locked at $170.
