Similar to the Oregon Ducks and the North Carolina Tarheels, when Jordan Brand produces player exclusives for the Michigan Wolverines, the sneaker community at large takes notice. For a lengthy stretch, Michigan has been revered not only for what they do on the field or court, but what they suit up on any given surface.
That’s just one of the reasons why the Air Jordan 3 “Michigan” PE reigns supreme where most collegiate PEs are concerned. Even when pinned against that of MJ’s alma maters pair, iconic Michigan moments surge to the minds of many forming a favoritism for the blue and yellow rendering. The Fab Five, Desmond Howard’s Heisman pose, Charles Woodson with the rose in his mouth after their Rose Bowl victory — those are just a few moments that add to the towering Michigan lore.
250 pairs of this special edition Air Jordan 3 were produced for Michigan football and basketball friends and family. Grab a detailed look below but don’t expect a retail release anytime soon.
