In an era where there's more widespread knowledge of limited and hard-to-obtain sneakers, true collectors obsess over finding pairs that the general public would have no access to. Such was the case with the extremely coveted Jordan 3 Retro that was issued as a Player Exclusive to the University of North Carolina basketball team, Jordan's alma mater, in 2018. Now, two years later, Jordan Brand follows through for the people with a "Valor Blue" Jordan 3 Retro that takes the same form as the UNC PE. The "UNC" 3, as it has been commonly referred to, hits all the same notes as the PE pair, with the exception of an embroidered Jumpman logo replacing the UNC logo on the tongue. Furthermore, the UNC 3 incorporates a reworked, more uniform elephant print.
The "UNC" Jordan 3 Retro releases in men's sizes this Saturday at West NYC, in-store only. Enter the raffle here for your chance to purchase a pair; winners will be notified via email on Friday, 3/6, and have until 7PM on Saturday 3/7 to purchase their pair.
