The UNC Tar Heels are perhaps at the top of the list of priority when it comes to crafting Jordan footwear Player Exclusives for its athletes. With Michael Jordan himself establishing his championship-winning ways in Chapel Hill, the channel has been wide open and flowing for powder blue concoctions of Air Jordan footwear, and there’s no better occasion than an epic UNC vs. Duke showdown to sport some new kicks.
Since the student-athletes require game-appropriate shoes, Jordan Brand has been blessing its students with special colorways of the Jordan Luka 2. Already revealed in a bright neon green colorway that tells the origin story of the Tar Heel, this new version keeps things uniform-appropriate for that team solidarity on the court. Covered in a baby blue patent leather upper, this Luka 2 makes use of wild paint speckling on the tongue, the foam midsole and the exterior heel-clip. Their signature blend of white, navy, and blue appears on the lace eyelets, while a mosaic of school logos appear on the footbed through the translucent icy outsole.
Look out for this Jordan Luka 2 PE on the feet of the UNC Tar Heels when they take on the Duke Blue Devils tonight at 6:30pm ET, because this might be the last time you ever seen them.
