After months of waiting, the ‘UNC’ blue Air Jordan 3 is finally almost here. A flip on the veritable ‘White Cement’ OG, any purist is sure to have a soft spot for this historically accurate retro.
The University of North Carolina was Michael Jordan’s alma mater, whose blue basketball uniforms have paired up with exclusive Jordans in recent years. For us mere mortals, this upcoming AJ3 is the closest we’ll get to those special editions, short of joining the collegiate basketball team!
White tumbled leather and grey elephant print are non-negotiable elements of the colourway, then smooth light blue tones come through on the midsole accent, eyelets and Jumpman logo. On that legendary logo, chunky embroidery emboldens the MJ silhouette for extra definition.
JD Sports Australia is the place to go on March 7 when the ‘UNC’ AJ3 releases in limited quantities. Hit their webstore or brick-and-mortar locations early to get the jump.
