The bond between Michael Jordan and the University of North Carolina is legendary. It’s a relationship that has transcended time, from Jordan’s college days to his unparalleled NBA career and beyond. This bond is once again celebrated with the release of the Air Jordan 6 UNC “Six Championships” PE, a sneaker that pays homage to the Tar Heels’ illustrious basketball legacy.

The University of North Carolina’s basketball program is renowned for its championship pedigree, and Jordan Brand has chosen to honor this legacy with a special edition of the Air Jordan 6. This exclusive player edition sneaker is a nod to the school’s six national titles, with each championship year embroidered on the heels. Three years on the left, three on the right, with the iconic “82” year outlined in yellow, marking the year Michael Jordan clinched the title for the Tar Heels.

The design of the shoe is a blend of tradition and innovation. It features a buttery suede upper in a deep blue hue, complemented by neoprene tongue panels and matching laces. The University Blue accents on the midsole, tongue, and outsole give the shoe its distinctive UNC identity. But it’s not just about aesthetics; the shoe tells a story. The transparent tongue reveals the signature argyle patterns, reminiscent of the jerseys worn by the Tar Heels on the court.


While sneaker enthusiasts and Tar Heels fans would love to get their hands on this exclusive pair, it’s worth noting that only 25 pairs of this special edition were produced. As of now, there are no plans for a general release. However, those eager to catch a glimpse can find detailed shots of the sneaker below.
