Get Up Close and Personal with the Air Jordan 6 Retro ‘UNC’

Simplicity. Quality. Proper storytelling. This is all we’ve been wanting from the Jordan Brand.

While this is one of very few upcoming Jordan releases that appears to feature all of the traits above, we give credit where it’s due. The ‘UNC’ Air Jordan 6 Retro is beautiful.

The shoe’s story has yet to be told, but we believe it’s paying tribute to the time MJ was seen practicing in his beloved UNC practice shorts while rocking the Air Jordan 6 ‘Carmine’. This Black/University Blue colorway looks like it lines up perfectly with the shorts and black compression shorts worn.

December 23 is the current release date for the upcoming model so it gives you plenty of time to think about whether or not you’ll be grabbing a pair. Retail will likely be $190.

Let us know what you think about this new colorway of the Air Jordan 6 below and stay tuned for additional images in the future.

  1. I was kinda whatever with the colorway itself in the studio lighting, but in more realistic environments and lighting like in the pics here, it definitely grew on me.
