Jordan Brand is bringing back their PE style retros, this time for the Air Jordan 5 “UNC.” We have seen more of this in the last few years from Michigan and Oregon 5’s. They redid the Oregon 6 and made the Air Jordan 3 “UNC” in 2020.
This take on the Air Jordan 5 “UNC” has a full nubuck upper covered in university blue and takes inspiration from Jordan’s college days with the Tarheels. White mesh netting sits at the midfoot with a darker university blue along the eye stays, adding contrast to the upper.
The midsole retains the iconic fighter jet look in white with blue speckles. At the same time, the rest of the midsole has a black finish. The rubber outsole is featured in a mix of black and icy translucent blue and has Jumpman branding in blue. The tongue is made of mesh with Jumpman branding at the top with 3M hits. Behind the tongue reads Heart & Soul on either side. Other details include university blue flat laces with lace locks, Jumpman on insoles, and quilted sock-liner.
When Does The Air Jordan 5 UNC Release?
Look for these to launch on March 4th via the SNKRS app and select Jordan retailers worldwide in full family sizing. Retail is $225, $150 $90 & $70 sizes. See below for official images and in-hand looks. Keep it locked to our social media to stay up to date on Jordan and other sneaker releases.
