North Carolina Tar Heels forward Brandon Huffman recently took to socials to share pics of a new Air Jordan 9 Boot PE, decked out in a rugged black upper. We’re used to seeing the familiar Blue, White and Black shades on Jordan Brand’s ‘UNC’ drops, but the latest PE offering goes for a timely winter-ready makeup.
Sharing similarities to Nike’s Special Field Boot, this bulked-up Air Jordan 9 rendition is crafted with nubuck, while metal eyelets, rugged tread, and boot-style laces add to the utilitarian vibes. The ‘UNC’ pride is carried with Carolina Blue accents, and Tar Heels logos stitched on each heel.
As with other PEs, you may have to resort to eBay if you want any chance of copping.
