The Air Jordan 3 Retro "Valor Blue" UNC is set to release just in time for March Madness. Aside from the Jumpman branding on the back heel tab, the Jordan 3 UNC is true to the original 3 silhouette construction featuring a white tumbled leather upper juxtaposed by the iconic elephant skin on the heel & toe overlays. In true Tarheel fashion the sneaker is finished off two shades of blue on the Jumpman branding, lace eyelets, & the back part of the midsole. Jordan fans can expect the Jordan 3 UNC to release on 3/7/2020 for a retail price of $190.
Shortly after the Tarheels teased the Jordan 3 UNC PE, Jordan Brand announced an altered version for general release, the Jordan 3 Retro "Valor Blue" UNC. One of the biggest differences between the PE exclusively made for the Tarheel's football team and the GR Jordan 3 UNC is the UNC branding on the tongue is replaced by a Jumpman. Aside from the lack of UNC branding on the Jordan 3 Retro "Valor Blue," there are subtle differences in the quality of the leather used throughout the upper and Jordan removed the patent leather mudguards in favor of tumbled leather. There are also some slight color differences between the PE and the GR, the wider released pair features softer blues & grey accents. Despite the differences between the two, the Jordan 3 Retro "Valor Blue" UNC is still a must cop for Jordan and Tarheel fans alike. Pick them up on 3/7/2020 for $190.
