Considering that Michael Jordan wore University of North Carolina shorts underneath his Bulls shorts during every game of his storied career, it's almost a surprise that there weren't more Air Jordan models finished in Carolina blue. Michael's allegiance to the Tar Heels was on full display in a "Powder Blue" Air Jordan 9 released in 1994, and the shoe is recreated two decades later in low-top form. A tonal University Blue leather upper rests on a clean white sole unit, accented with pops of black on the heel, tongue tag and collar. Look for the kicks to launch June 11 through Nike's SNKRS.
