Jordan Brand partners at the collegiate level are beginning to hit the court in the Why Not sequel. Among the first, of course, is Jordan’s alma mater — the University of North Carolina.

Colored in Carolina Blue with white and Midnight Navy accents, serious “Win Like 82” styling adorns this graceful hoops shoe. Likely just a PE for the Heels, we wouldn’t anticipate this shoe releasing at retail.
