It has its perks to be Michael Jordan’s alma mater. The University of North Carolina football team is getting an exclusive Air Jordan 5 PE iteration with the influence of the Tar Heels.
The two-tone sneaker fits with UNC’s powder blue uniform that has become a staple in college sports. The high-top ankle is broken up by the dark blue tongue with UNC’s overlapping logo in the center.
Its side panels are composed of white mesh while a black spiked wave is one the lower side with powder blue spotted paint. Much like other Air Jordans before it, the cracked design can be appreciated even more with the dark blue lines against the powder blue body.
This iteration of the Air Jordan 5 will only be available for the Tar Heels football team despite the sneaker being a basketball shoe and Jordan playing for the program before his NBA draft.
