Air Jordan XXX “UNC”

0 2307

To think that Michael Jordan has been retired from the game for thirteen years can almost bring a tear to your eye. The man who inspired so many individuals to pick up a basketball and try to mimic his one-of-a-kind fade away jumper or drive to the hoop and stick their tongue out like he always would shaped so many aspects of the game. MJ may not be hitting the court anymore, but his sneakers still carry a strong presence on the court. With some of the best names in the game representing Jordan Brand sneakers, the allegiance of greatness carries on like Mike never left.

The man, the myth, the legend; Tinker Hatfield got back in the Innovation Kitchen and designed the next signature sneaker in the Jordan line. It may not have been made for MJ but that doesn’t mean the same creativity and passion didn’t go into the design. With sneaker designs being so important these days, a special shoe is needed for an outstanding player like Russell Westbrook. The power, speed, explosiveness and athleticism he brings to the table are unmatched.

We saw the Air Jordan XXX hit the hardwood at NBA All-Star weekend, but now we are getting a colorway that is inspired by Mike’s Alma matter. The “UNC” color scheme has become famous over the years thanks to the popularity of MJ and North Carolinas rich basketball program. Mike keeps the Tar-Heels decked out in the latest and greatest, so why wouldn’t you want to get in on that? Very similar to the first pair that dropped, we see this sneaker get a white and Carolina blue pattern on the medial side of the shoe. You can’t help but feel like you’re a part of the UNC basketball team when you put these on.
