Concept that paved the way for the Air Jordan 6 “UNC”
The Air Jordan sneakers series are mostly inspired by stories of success and triumph that were synonymous with Hall of Famer and superstar athlete Michael Jordan. And the Air Jordan 6 “UNC” has also followed in the footsteps of its predecessors as it seeks to go back in time into a chapter of the legend’s life when he was plying his trade at a little known North Carolina colleague team.

Back then, Jordan was only at the start of what was going to be a blistering career and even then, at just a tender age, he was already starting to live up to the world-class billing fans had already placed on his head. Ultimately, he would surpass expectations in scintillating fashion and hence how the concept of these new sneakers came about. They serve to be a memorable and ever-present reminder of where it all started; they tell the tale of the boy before he became legend.
The Air Jordan 6 “UNC” obtains its colorway from the jersey scheme of Michael’s maiden team with the majority of the sneakers incorporating the classic and timeless black of the away outfit. The upper body in its entirety is dominated by this bewitching darkness that is sparked to life by university blue accents throughout the top of the heel area and portions of the midsole as well. Similarly colored laces adorn the front culminating in tiny elegant blue lace locks with miniature jumpans.
The black continues to the bottom of the shoes albeit with jagged patterns of a summit white sole outlining the better part of the bottom. At the center of this beautiful display stands a vibrant blue jumpan, similar to those found on the faces of both tongues, that has become a trademark with the Air Jordan brand.
The company’s logo is also embedded artistically along the top portion of the tongue that sticks out wittingly behind the bright blue of the lace locks. To cap off the beautiful design, the back of the shoes contains subtle jumpmans in full flight above a classy imprint that reads just one word: AIR. The “UNC” might seem ordinary and subtle; however, make no mistake about it, it is a true work of art.
