The once PE, Air Jordan 3 “UNC” will finally be releasing to the public next spring but the GR pair will see some minor design changes.

Once a headline of a UNC Football scandal that left 13 players suspended for multiple games, the UNC Jordan 3 has always been in demand. While the shoe was just a PE and very limited, UNC athletes were enticed to sell for a lot of money which led them to be suspended for upwards of three games during the 2018 season. While the scandal is past us and will always be a big moment in Sneaker and NCAA history, the coveted sneaker will finally be released to the public in its Tar Heel colorway.

Calling upon a smooth white leather upper, accents of UNC blue honor Michael Jordans alma mater all throughout. While the PE pair featured a UNC logo on the tongue as well as “UNC Basketball” on the inner tongue, this pair that will release in 2020 will arrive with a different make up that features normal Air Jordan branding. The Nike Air logo will grace the heels while a white midsole wraps up the design very nicely.


While we don’t have leaked images of the pair just yet, you can expect the same make-up as the PE, just without the features noted above. The Air Jordan 3 “UNC” is expected to arrive on March 7th, 2019 at select retailers and As more details surface, keep it locked to JustFreshKicks for updates as well as more information on the latest sneaker news.
