The Jordan Pro Strong, a renowned player in the Jumpman lineup since its inception in 1998, is stepping back into the spotlight, sporting the brand’s classic “University Blue” hue.
This silhouette, known for its long-standing association with Nike’s Beaverton brand and endorsed by the likes of Vin Baker, is revisiting its roots with a contemporary twist.
In recent times, the fashion world saw the renowned “University Blue” shade adorning a pair of Air Jordan 1 Mids, and the MVP 678, releasing an unmistakable wave of nostalgic University of North Carolina vibes. Now, this coveted hue is making its reappearance, delicately accentuating the design of the latest Jordan Pro Strong. It’s a bold yet subtle touch to an otherwise starkly black ensemble, illustrating the perfect blend of tradition and innovation.
Drawing parallels with the Air Jordan 13’s dimple-stitched sidewalls and sole unit, this fresh iteration of the Jordan Pro Strong remains true to the classic design language. Featuring a robust nubuck and tumbled leather upper painted in deep black, it creates a captivating contrast against the distinctive sky-blue detailing.
This striking contrast doesn’t end there; the white tread underneath sets a balanced tone, while the “University Blue” trim takes center stage. It infuses a renewed vibrancy into the lining of the upper overlay, tongue, and collar, while simultaneously accentuating the signature Jumpman logos. The end result? An ode to the brand’s heritage coupled with a contemporary spin that keeps the sneaker fans on their toes.
With a retail price tag of $140, the Jordan Pro Strong “University Blue” (Style Code: DC8418-004) is all set to hit the shelves.
