The 2017 NBA All-Star Game may have passed, but now the 2017 NCAA March Madness Tournament is on its way. Fans are likely eagerly waiting for Selection Sunday so that the 68-team field, which will be a part of the tournament, is revealed. As the final weeks starts to near, a myriad of captivating and fascinating storylines will begin to surface. Announcement for the 68-team NCAA field will be made on March 12th, but it seems that Jordan Brand is also gearing up for it. They have already whipped up a brand new Air Jordan 13 PE and judging from its color scheme, it is for the Tar Heels.
Next week is also scheduled to mark the beginning of low-tier conference tournaments. Mid-major teams win their respective tournaments will end up in the 68-team NCAA field, while those who do not will either be at home or participating in lesser events during the March Madness Tournament. Nonetheless, plenty of mid-major teams will be a part of the NCAA bracket. Currently, the five leading conferences that are most likely to make it into the bracket, include the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pacific-12 and the SEC. For the mid-major teams, the foremost difficulty will be scheduling for home games.
The University of North Carolina Tar Heels are currently in the Top 10 college basketball rankings, but they will have to maintain a consistent performance to remain there. Perhaps these latest Air Jordan 13 PE sneakers will serve as motivation. Much like the numerous PE iterations that have been designed for them in the past, this one has also been dressed up in the team’s colors. Its mesh side panels are dressed up in Carolina Blue, its leather toe boxes are plain White, and Wolf Grey appears over its ankle and mudguard overlays. Last but not least, it appears to be equipped with White- and Wolf Grey-colored midsoles, and Carolina Blue-colored outsoles.
Black-colored “Jumpman” branding near the ankles and an argyle print over its inner linings can also be spotted. Of course, since this is an Air Jordan 13 PE rendition, it will likely not be arriving at retailers.
