Jordan Brand is immortalizing Michael Jordan‘s game-winning shot during the 1982 NCAA Championship with its latest Air Jordan 1 Mid GS design.

The kid’s exclusive footwear arrives with white and UNC blue uppers that are contrasted by monochromatic panel detailing, which shows MJ going for the shot and the reaction of Tar Heels coach Dean Smith as he watches the neophyte. Traditional Air Jordan and swoosh branding can be found on the tongue tag, ankle and panel, but it also touched with a special tongue that recreates a basketball net with stitched lacing. The iteration rests on a white midsole and matching UNC blue outsole, tied together with white laces for a sleek finish.

Check out the shoe above and stay tuned for an official release date.
