A gift from Michael Jordan to his old college squad is now available for everyone as the Air Jordan 3 Retro "UNC" receives its first wide release. Originally created as a special PE for athletes at MJ's alma mater, the general public version of the shoe is basically the same, with only the UNC logo on the tongue replaced with a light blue Jumpman.
The construction sees a white tumbled leather upper with the iconic elephant print overlays on the toe and heel, light blue accents on the tongue, eyestay and heel counter, and a white rubber heel badge with a navy Air Jordan logo. A white midsole holds the signature Max Air heel unit and is capped off by a grey rubber outsole, while a red insole with a woven Jordan jock tag finishes off the detailing.
The Air Jordan 3 Retro "UNC" will be available on Saturday, March 7th @ 10:00am in-store at select City Blue locations. Contact your local City Blue for availability.
