Since mid-2019, we knew this year would be the year of the Air Jordan 1 but 2021 will hold new looks with brand new iterations like this “University Gold” edition.

Jordan Brand appears to be taking a break from their usual colorways and adding new looks to their beloved Air Jordan 1. While dozens of colorways have surfaced for this year that call for the classic red/black, blue/black and even pine green looks, they’re mixing it up with brand new takes now, which is something very nice to see.

While no leaked images have surfaced as of yet, this Air Jordan 1 is expected to be released in a White, Volt, University Gold, and Black color scheme. Just from that alone expect a white leather base that features black overlays and University Gold and Volt accents all throughout. A peculiar colorway for the Jordan 1 nonetheless, it’ll be interesting to see the final product.


Anticipated for early 2021, the Air Jordan 1 “Volt Gold” will not be available for a while but that gives us a lot of time to get more images like on-feet pictures that’ll give us a great look at the upcoming silhouette. Check out the mock-up below and keep it locked for more details and other sneaker news.
