When it comes to storied relationships in the world of sportswear, few rival that between the University of North Carolina (UNC) and Jordan Brand. Over the years, UNC has consistently been at the forefront of Jordan Brand's collegiate exclusive sneakers. Now, following up on OU’s version of the AJ 12 Retro Low Cleat, the Tar Heels are back in the spotlight with their own Air Jordan 12 Retro Low Cleat PE tailored for their football program.
The latest iteration from Jordan Brand for UNC is a testament to the school's legacy and prestige in collegiate sports. Boasting an all-leather construction, this Jordan 12 Low Cleat proudly wears the iconic UNC blue hues. This vibrant shade is applied to the faux snakeskin mudguard, lace set, sockliner, and pull tab, beautifully embodying the spirit of the Tar Heels. A shimmering metallic blue graces the Jumpman-branded patch near the midfoot, echoing the shine of the top-most eyestay. As a nod to the institution and the legend behind the brand, the tongue tag alternates logos: UNC's emblem graces the left shoe, while the right sports the iconic Jordan Jumpman. This switch-up is mirrored on the heel tabs, creating an engaging play of branding. The cleat concludes with a robust UNC blue sole unit primed for gridiron action, designed for performance on the football field.
The Air Jordan 12 Retro Low Cleat UNC PE will be exclusive to football players for the Tarheels.
