The recent Jordan Brand signee now has its first PE.
For collectors and college athletes at Jordan Brand-affiliated universities, PE sneakers of retro Air Jordan sneakers are what you get excited about every year. Long-time partners with the sub-division of Nike like the University of Oregon or the University of North Carolina have a storied history of player exclusive pairs, now, Howard University is joining in on the fun. Just one month after the official announcement of their 20-year deal with Jordan Brand, members of the Howard Bison athletic program should be expecting an Air Jordan 6 “Howard University” PE very soon.
Taking on the color scheme of the Bisons, grey, red, and navy, shades take over the entire sneaker with added details denoting the Howard connection. The majority of the leather panels come in grey with red accents appearing near the eyestays, on the “HU” embroidered lace cover, and via the red Jumpman logo on the golden lace lock. Further collegiate details land below the navy blue sockliner and heel spoiler with an embroidered patch featuring Howard University’s logo and via the toebox and its regal-like stitching detail. Rounding out the look is the AJ 6 midsole that comes in navy and red while the semi-translucent rubber outsole comes in a clear shade.
The Air Jordan 6 Howard University PE will stay exclusive to members of the Howard Bison athletic program. For further updates on HU PEs and more in the sneaker and streetwear world, keep it locked to our Twitter and the Sole Retriever mobile app.
