The UNC Tar Heels’ colors will forever be wrapped up in the Michael Jordan legacy, with no small number of Air Jordan models borrowing the blue and white pairing. When the Air Jordan XIV made its original retail run there was one such pair, albeit a low version rather than the standard silhoutte. The only folks who did get to enjoy them in true mid form were players on the UNC b-ball squad that year, with this Air Jordan XIV apparently being handed out as one of the perks that comes with playing for MJ’s alma mater (and later popping up at random retail spots like Eastbay). The pair also shifts the colors a little bit, swapping out the Columbia blue of the low’s for the obviously more appropriate Carolina blue. Click through to check out the rare Air Jordan XIV in white/black-Carolina blue and bid on this pair now from k1ckscr3w19 on eBay.
