Michael Jordan will forever be red and black in the eyes of millions, but there are more than a few fans out there who also love him just as much for his days as a powder blue North Carolina Tar Heel. By proxy and one amazing shot in particular), Jordan’s greatness shined a bright light on his alma matter and probably influenced a few athletes along the way to suit up for UNC just to follow in his footsteps. Well, that and the cool kicks that come standard with being a UNC basketball player nowadays.
This year, Jordan Brand has really pushed the powder blue color in a variety of ways. It’s only March and we have already seen several Air Jordans and non-signature models release in various hues of powder blue, including a pair of Air Jordan 10 and Air Jordan 3 retros that we received from Jordan Brand recently. But the big news is that the famous Jordan Jumpman Team 1 “UNC” has also returned in all its awesome glory for kids who grew up in the 90s to enjoy once more.
Check out our video of these retros up top and let us know what you think in the comments section.
