Near the beginning of this month, the North Carolina Tar Heels were victorious in the final game of this year’s NCAA March Madness tournament and they brought home a sixth NCAA title. Last year, the Tar Heels were defeated in the NCAA March Madness final when Kris Jenkins of the Villanova Wildcats hit a 3-pointer just as the buzzer went off. The team’s loss was quite a devastating shock for coach Roy Williams, but both him and the Tar Heels have made quite a comeback. Before they became this year’s champions, the Tar Heels had also received pairs of an Air Jordan 13 Low PE from Jordan Brand.
The second half of the 2017 NCAA March Madness final had just kicked off when the Tar Heels managed to gain a 5-point lead. Beyond that, until the closing moments neared, the score just kept on tipping back and forth between the two teams. Once 16 minutes remained, it became quite apparent that the finish of the final game was going to be kind of dramatic. Gonzaga had quite an extraordinary year, but the ending to the final was quite stark, at least for them. Under the coaching of Roy Williams, the North Carolina Tar Heels have ended up winning the title for the third time.
Many sneakerheads may have already gotten a look at the Iar Jordan 13 Low “UNC” PE featured, but new, more detailed photos have been shared on Instagram by English Sole (@englishsole). It is being reported that Jordan Brand produced merely 50 pairs for this sneaker. Since it is dressed up in the colors of the University of North Carolina Tar Heels, its mesh uppers are predominantly dressed up in Carolina Blue. White-colored premium leather that appears over the midsoles, toe boxes and tongues adds contrast to its uppers, while further contrast is added by Wolf Grey-colored detailing.
Sneakerheads know very well not to get their hopes high about copping a pair of a PE sneaker, especially like the one featured here, considering just 50 pairs were produced. Nonetheless, there is still the possibility that some pairs of this Air Jordan 13 Low “UNC” PE may end up becoming available in the resale market at some point in the future.
