Those of a certain age were fortunate to remember when Cincinnati, along with St. John’s, Cal, and North Carolina A&T, was one of the Jordan Brand sponsored schools during brand’s infancy as its own infancy in the late ‘90s. After stumbling through the wilderness of mediocrity in both performance and gear at an Adidas school, Jordan Brand and the Bearcats found their way back to one another, with UC rejoining the Jumpmab fold in May of 2023.
They sport a monochromatic red aesthetic, with only the Bearcat logo and Jumpman on the left and right tongue respectively, offering the only visual variety. Underneath resides a red Formula 23 midsole that houses Nike Air cushioning and a red rubber outsole.
As it currently stands, there is no word on a planned retail release, but we hope that changes.
