Jordan Brand Gift Unc Coach Roy Williams With A Special Pair Of Jays
Behind every great athlete is a great coach. And when it comes to college basketball, they don't come much greater than Roy Williams. The University of North Carolina head coach led the Tar Heels to victory over Syracuse this week, chalking up Williams' 800th career win. In celebration, the team's official sportswear sponsor, Jordan Brand, gifted the highly-praised coach with a one-of-a-kind package featuring a very special pair of Air Jordan 1 Pinnacle Lows. The wood and perspex packaging has been etched with celebrations of Williams' career achievements, including his myriad of 'Final Four' appearances. As for the shoes inside, the metallic silver Jays have one key difference to the retail release – they've been signed with best wishes from the GOAT himself. In fact, the lateral sides of both shoes feature Jordan's penmanship, more than making up for the lack of Swoosh on this Pinnacle release.
While the sneakers are strictly a gift for the great man himself, Jordan Brand have created 800 commemorative t-shirts that will be available to purchase. All proceeds will go towards the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.
