unc 570x367 The Greatest 25 Sneakers in UNC Basketball History

The Chicago Bulls colors are more strongly associated with the Air Jordan Legacy than any others, but depending on who you ask, it’s the North Carolina Tar Heels-inspired editions that take the visual cake.  UNC PEs mean white and Carolina Blue, but Jordan Brand isn’t the only company collaborating on the history of Tobacco Road.  In fact, Michael himself wore Converse while playing in Chapel Hill, a visual that’s nearly as ironic as a slim and trim twenty-something George Karl rocking chucks with belted short-shorts.  Click through to see some Converses, Nikes and Jordans the University of North Carolina has donned over their illustrious basketball history and head over to Complex to see if you agree with their rankings.
