Release Alert (4/24/10): Air Jordan 2010 Black/University Blue

Air Jordan 2010 Black/University Blue

You didn’t think North Carolina would be left out did you?  Okay, good.  I’m personally a sucker for black based uppers that are kept simple in terms of color contrast.  Surprise, surprise, the Air Jordan 2010 is coming at us in the Black/University Blue colorway.  I will have to do my best to avoid spending money that I shouldn’t on these.

Like I said, I love me some black on my kicks and this nubuck and patent leather upper sure looks enticing.  The Carolina (University) blue accents the black upper through the midsole, the stitching (just for aesthetics) on the patent leather forefoot, the Jumpman logo on the tongue, and the inner of the shoe.  And yes, probably to the dismay of many, the thermoplastic perforated window is still there smack dab in the middle of both side panels.  My favorite part though, is the clear full rubber outsole that blends into the Carolina blue midsole and subtly disguises the herringbone traction pods.  That abstract print of black and blue of the inner lining has a sort of hypnosis effect on me as well.

Peep my sole.

The Air Jordan 2010 Black/University Blue without a doubt, makes me wish that I was a baller at UNC or an athlete signed with Jordan Brand.  While Dwyane Wade will more than likely not be playing in these kicks during the NBA Playoffs, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Carmelo Anthony do a one-game exhibition for this colorway.  Well, that is of course assuming he’s willing to closet his Jordan Melo M6 for a night.  Perhaps we may not see these one the court at all on second thought, but it’s always nice to dream.

These bad boys will be dropping into your local House of Hoops on April 24, 2010 for a substantial $170.00.  Be warned however because this colorway is going to be a limited release so you have to be on your game to get a pair.
