The New Air Jordan 3 UNC: The Backstory Upfront! 

By March 3, 2020July 12th, 2022Jordan, Sneaker News

Air Jordan 3 UNC FIFriends, family, AND every sneakerhead to ever walk the planet, we’ve got news for you. Which certainly won’t be causing any NCAA violations! To begin with, remember what went down in 2018 with the OG Air Jordan 3 PE UNC?! Boy was that an epic event in history. Taking the fact that the Air Jordan 3 lineage kicks us all the way back to 1988! BUT we are now psyched to inform you that the Air Jordan 3 UNC will be releasing soon this March!

Is the Air Jordan 3 UNC Worth the Hype?!

YES we are wondering what the thirteen suspended North Carolina players have to say about it. And YES you will be able to cop your own pair using AIO bot this time! Because this time, the sneaker industry is about to welcome, with open arms and pockets, the one and only (…apparently not) Air Jordan UNC! So, the only question now is, will the copycat of the OG Air Jordan 3 PE be able to compete with “it-sole-mighty” predecessor? (with resale bids exceeding $5,500)? And make you tons of money?!

The Air Jordan 3 UNC: To PE or NOT to PE…

Firstly and in comparison to its predecessor, this Air Jordan 3 edition also reflects the University of North Carolina theme with its clean white leather upper and two shades of blue displayed on the sneaker’s eyelets, branding, and midsole heel area. Secondly, we have the iconic elephant print, resembling a drought with its cracked-earth feel, also portrayed on the toe and heel overlays! But listen up for the next part because that is where Jordan drew the line! In short, content below may change the way you view Jordan sneakers. So sit tight!


All Hail Major Difference!

So, the MAJOR difference between the new UNC and the OG keeping them from becoming an exact copy?! In brief, the OG features the NC (North Carolina) logo on the tongue in blue whereas the new UNC features the Jumpman logo in blue on the tongue instead! In other words, there is no way to turn around the fact that Air Jordan intends to turn a one-time legacy from wish-list material into another Add to Cart option! So we suppose this makes it official. Conspiracy theories, you may begin to kick in! Jordan dear, why couldn’t you bring sexy back without bringing the PE back?!
