Color: Grey Mist/White-Midnight Navy
On March 29, 1982, the world got its first taste of the crunch time greatness of Michael Jordan when he knocked down the winning shot for the University of North Carolina against Georgetown University in the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship game. This moment is the proverbial foundation in the career of the man many consider to be the greatest player in basketball history. MJ has said on multiple occasions that before he would take game-winning shots while with the Bulls, he would think back to this moment. It is a testament to the importance of that shot, that game, and that opponent, Georgetown, in the legend of Michael Jordan.
Throughout the years Jordan Brand has had a longstanding connection with Michael's collegiate rival, a connection that is only further solidified with this Saturday's release of the Air Jordan 11 Retro Low "Georgetown". This low-top version of the beloved silhouette is decked in Hoyas colors, with Midnight Navy patent leather stretched around a Grey Mist cordura mesh upper. Sitting atop a white midsole and finished off with the signature icy blue outsole, you get a worthy tribute to the first vanquished combatant on the road to His Airness' immortality.
