David Turner is a former professional athlete turned sneaker expert. With an insider's perspective on performance footwear, he dissects the technology and design behind the latest sports kicks.
The UNC Tar Heels basketball season is about to tip off in early November, and you can bet that Jordan Brand is gearing up to outfit these young ballers with some fresh kicks for the upcoming campaign. This season's lineup includes the highly-anticipated Jordan Luka 2, Zion 3, and the trusty Air Jordan game shoe, ensuring that the UNC Tar Heels hit the court in style.
Standout women's basketball team athlete, Alyssa Ustby, has already given us an exclusive first look at the Air Jordan 38 Player Edition (PE) designed especially for this season. These kicks sport a clean white leather look with university blue embroidery, proudly featuring the NC logo on the left tongue. And who knows, we might see some alternative colorways of the Air Jordan 38 for their Away games.
Moreover, it's not just UNC; other college basketball programs repping Jordan Brand are also expected to get their own Air Jordan 38 Player Editions. However, don't get your hopes up, as these exclusives are unlikely to hit retail shelves.
In other exciting news, check out the first look at the Air Jordan 38 Low, recently spotted on the feet of Jordan athlete Brandon Ingram. Sneakerheads and hoops fans alike have plenty to look forward to as Jordan Brand continues to push the envelope in the world of athletic footwear.
Stay tuned for an action-packed season on and off the court!
