Jordan Brand has dropped countless nods to MJ’s alma mater over the years, but it looks like 2017 will see the release of one of the best Tar Heels-inspired kicks yet: a “UNC” rendition of the low-top Air Jordan 11. Last seen way back in 2001, the Air Jordan 11 Low “UNC” is getting a little bit of an overhaul for 2017’s retro drop, swapping out the “Columbia Blue” hue of the original in favor of a “University Blue” hue while applying a corresponding blue-tinted translucent rubber to the outsole.
