There’s so many iconic Air Jordan 1 colorways that it’s difficult to truly choose one as a stand out. But most would agree that the original ‘Banned’ colorway is the most iconic Air Jordan 1. The ‘Banned’ colorway is also referred to as the ‘Bred’ colorway. ‘Bred’ simply refers to the color of the sneaker and ‘Banned’ refers to how the sneaker was banned by the NBA when Michael Jordan first wore it in 1985.
The Style of ‘UNC to Chicago’
The Air Jordan 1 High OG ‘UNC to Chicago’ is a combination of both the Air Jordan 1 ‘UNC’ and the Air Jordan 1 ‘Bred/Banned’. This sneaker is definitely going to end up being one of the most popular releases of the year because of the history that both of these colorways carry. The classic UNC colors are utilized on the backend of the sneaker and the Nike logo on the side. The rest of the sneaker utilizes the ‘Bred/Banned’ colorway. Both of the colors compliment each other perfectly. The light blue from the ‘UNC’ edition and the black/red combination from the ‘Bred/Banned’ edition join together to make a great sneaker.
One thing that has caused a bit of conflict is that it has been announced that the Air Jordan 1 High OG ‘UNC to Chicago’ will not be released in a men’s size run. That means that men looking to buy this sneaker will have to buy in a women’s size. Honestly, I don’t see it as an issue but I’m sure you know how sensitive men can be. The size run goes all the way up to a women’s 16.5 so any man with a size 15 or smaller will be able to wear this sneaker without any problem. The only issue that men seem to be having with the Air Jordan 1 High OG ‘UNC to Chicago’ is that it has been labelled as a women’s sneaker by Nike.
The sneakers will be available at most national retailers but we recommend Shiekh as the place to shop. They are holding a raffle to guarantee customers the chance to buy the Air Jordan 1 ‘UNC to Chicago’. This takes away the hassle of waking up early in the morning and trying to buy them at the store. No more having to try and wait in an online queue for the chance to buy these sneakers, hoping that the app or site doesn’t crash. Shiekh will let you know the day before the release date if you have won the raffle or not. So there is no need to stress about it if you are successful with the raffle. Just sit back and make the purchase.
It will be available at many retailers nationwide including the SNKRS app. Most stores will be holding raffles because of the expected demand for the sneaker. Our recommendation is to check out the Shiekh app and enter there. They will let you know the day before the release if you were chosen so you can avoid the hassle of waking up early to cop these sneakers.
The original ‘Banned’ design and the ‘UNC’ colorways were combined to make this look. It pays homage to the two iconic teams that Michael Jordan plays for.
The sneaker will be released on February 13, 2020.
