Unless you’ve been hiding under a large rock, the Air Jordan 2012 made a triumphant debut yesterday, with a special media event arranged by Jordan Brand in Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. One of the debut releases of the Air Jordan 2012 was the ‘UNC’ in University Blue and Dark Steel Grey, and tonight the Tar Heels will wear their own ‘UNC’ version as we get a sneak peek at the Air Jordan 2012 in the Tar Heels PE. It features the same luxurious suede (seriously the best suede we’ve seen on an Air Jordan in ages) with Michael Jordan’s alma mater branded smack dab in the center of the upper and personalized numbers and message on the medial side-wall. Take a quick look at the Air Jordan 2012 UNC Tar Heels PE after the jump and keep an eye for these if you’re gonna catch the UNC/Duke game tonight. via russbengtson

Sneaker News just gave you a friendly reminder that the Wolf Grey edition will arrive at retailers tomorrow, and while we’re on the topic of the Air Jordan 2012, let’s take a look at the other Deluxe package about to debut. The Air Jordan 2012 Deluxe ‘UNC’ celebrates a school so intimately connected with Michael Jordan’s legacy that he was known to wear a pair of Tar Heels practice shorts under his Bulls jersey after having made his name there with an NCAA Championship-winning jumper in 1982. Three decades later, the ‘UNC’ AJ2012 offers a chance to reflect on Michael’s unparalleled contributions to the game of basketball, and you’ll find them in stores like Extra Butter if you’re quick to act on Wednesday, February 8th. Let us know if you’re planning to cop these, the ‘Wolf Greys’ or both, and if you want to cop the UNC’s early, get ‘em now on eBay.

If there would be just one other colorway for Air Jordans next to the Black/Red, it would be tough not to choose the trademark colors of the North Carolina Tar Heels. We recently showed you the purported UNC-specific ‘University Blue’ Air Jordan 2012, but here we have a first detailed look at what the Tar Heels could be sporting on court real soon; it features a suede portions that form a unique visual and textural contrast with the glossy Flywire shell, with a solid grey outsole and tongue accents providing the updated Tar Heel colorway insignia. Ironically, it’s the Black/Red trademark colorway mentioned earlier that we’ve yet to see – so far it’s been just the White/Black, Year Of The Dragon, and these eye-catching babies. Are these the best of the AJ 2012s we’ve seen so far? Check out the detailed shots below and don’t hesitate to let your thoughts be known in the comments area below. via sole-awesome.
