Jordan Melo M10: “UNC” PE

February 27th, 2014 By

We’re not too sure how Jordan Athletes feel about their signatures getting exclusive colorways for rival collegiate teams sponsored by the brand, but this Jordan Melo M10 in a Carolina Blue is gorgeous enough to probably get a nod from Carmelo Anthony. While the Tar Heels have struggled throughout the regular season (perhaps its their lack of retros on court) this Jordan Melo M10 might help. It features a clean Tar Heel blue while white holds down the midsole and toebox. Add in a signature Tar Heel logo on the icy sole and it’s one of the more creative Jordan PEs. What do you think of this Jordan Melo M10 made esclusive for the Tar Heels? Hit the click to get official images and let us know if you’d grab a pair of these player exclusives if they ever made their way to retail shelves.

Air Jordan 1 AJKO: UNC vs. Georgetown “Rival Pack”

February 17th, 2014 By

Even though MJ laced up a pair of Converse for what would be his game winning shot over the Georgetown Hoyas that would catapult him to stardom in the 1982 National Championship, we bet this pair of the Air Jordan 1 AJKO in Tar Heels colors would have been a nice substitution. The Georgetown and UNC rivalry stems from those games that pitted Patrick Ewing against MJ and now it looks like Jordan Brand will commemorate the foes with this “Rival Pack” featuring the canvas upper in both a clean UNC scheme in white and Carolina blue while Georgetown gets a grey and navy look.  Be sure to get with us after the click to get a full rundown of images for this upcoming Air Jordan 1 AJKO “Rival Pack” featuring Georgetown and UNC colorways of the infamous sneaker and let us know which pair you’re feeling more in the comments.

Air Jordan 1 AJKO: “UNC”

February 3rd, 2014 By

With March Madness right around the corner, it only makes sense for Jordan Brand to start busting out their colorways exclusive to teams that will likely have high seeds within the tournament. Earlier in the day, Kendall Marshall previewed two brand new Air Jordan 1 AJKOs that are likely headed to retailers in two Jordan affiliated school colors – a grey and navy Georgetown look and a white and university blue Tarheel scheme. Now we get a better view of the Tarheel-themed canvas upper that should be a more than formidable pick up with its simplistic two color scheme nod at MJ’s past. Be sure to stick with us after the click for a full rundown and stay tuned for an upcoming release date on this latest Air Jordan 1 AJKO drop.

In honor of a big matchup at home against the Kentucky Wildcats that pitted two of college basketball’s hungriest squads on North Carolina’s home court, UNC decided to break out the infamous crowd white out. While the stands looked like a sea of foam, Jordan Brand decided to take things a step further by giving MJ’s alma-mater some exclusive pairs of the Jordan Super.Fly 2 and Jordan CP3.VII in a clean white composition featuring sparse accents of that Carolina blue. UNC rolled to a big victory as well, so hit the gallery for a full image rundown and stay tuned for our latest NCAA Jordans On Court feature later in the week.

Vintage Gear: Michael Jordan Autographed Magazine Article

September 13th, 2013 By

Sam Perkins knows all about Michael Jordan. While many will remember MJ’s legendary mid-air hand-changing layup over Sam in the 1991 NBA Finals, the two once were teammates during their college years and worked together to save their sophomore season from an upset against ACC rival Maryland in a close 72-71 victory in which each tallied a game saving block. Today’s VG is a magazine article from that game, in which MJ is billed as ‘A Late Bloomer’, and coach Dean Smith described a “quiet confidence” in a young Michael Jordan. In the article’s front page – which is signed in blue ink by Jordan – Smith goes on to say “He doesn’t come out and say, ‘I’m better than you.’ But somewhere, something comes through that he feels he is better as a player.” The article is definitely a must read about a formidable player before he became the world’s best, and you can bid on the signed piece of history from millcreeksports on eBay.
