As this year's NBA All Star game comes to Michael Jordan's hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, Jordan Brand pays tribute to MJ's alma mater with the Air Jordan 9 Retro "UNC". Similar in appearance to 2002's Air Jordan 9 Low "Pearl Blue", this "UNC" colorway comes dressed in a white premium leather upper overlaid with Midnight Navy patent leather panels that cover the mudguard, heel and collar. University Blue accents hit the branding on the tongue, heel, insole, midsole and outsole, providing the Carolina pop the shoe is named for. Navy also graces the tongue, insole, pull tabs and midsole, while a white rubber outsole finishes off the look.
The Air Jordan 9 Retro "UNC" will release in-store and online email order Saturday, February 9th at 10:00am. Contact your local City Blue for availability.
