Finishing off this week of Classics Revisited feature of low-top Jays is the UNC-inspired colorway of the Air Jordan XVII Low. The shoe doesn’t look much like a low-top, but that’s because the internal bootie extends outward up to the ankle, giving the shoe a mid-cut look. Jordan actually wore several PE colorways of the Air Jordan XVII Low during his Wizards days, and we even recounted the Lightnings when he hilariously missed that wide-open slam-dunk during the 2002 NBA All-Star Game. Performance-wise – the XVII is recalled by ballers as being one of the best. The Air Jordan XVII is considered to be the best Air Jordan of the non-Tinker area, as it seamlessly welded a number of concepts like Jordan’s love for golf and jazz music into one classy design. More of this classic Air Jordan Low below, so give it a look and let us know if these are in your collection!
