UNC Football Unveil Air Jordan 12 PE Cleats for Season 2023
The University of North Carolina (UNC) football program is stepping onto the gridiron with renewed flair this season. Swapping the hardwood for turf, the Jordan brand, under its Jumpman banner, has unveiled a pair of player-exclusive (PE) Air Jordan 12 cleats crafted exclusively for the UNC Tar Heels.
Testament to the university's storied athletic history and the Jumpman’s ongoing relationship with Chapel Hill, the cleats sport a pristine white upper, a canvas for striking accents of "University Blue" — a hue synonymous with the Tar Heels' identity. This rich blue graces the oval laces, collar lining, heel tab, and even the iguana-print leather mudguards, blending tradition with a splash of modern flair. But it's not all about aesthetics; functional elements like the torsional TPU plate underfoot are engineered for top performance. Colored in a deep navy with a metallic finish, this feature ensures maximum stability on the field, matching the metallic tint on the uppermost eyelets.
The base of the cleat incorporates spikes treated in white and blue tones, adding a finishing touch to this exclusive silhouette. These details make it clear: this isn't just another athletic shoe but a symbol of the ongoing partnership between the Jumpman brand and UNC, fusing athletic prowess with iconic design.
With their eye-catching design and performance-focused features, the Air Jordan 12 "UNC Tar Heel" PE cleats are more than just athletic gear; they celebrate UNC's rich athletic legacy. Although exclusive to UNC's athletes, the unveiling of these special cleats keeps fans eagerly awaiting what other iconic collaborations might be next for the Jumpman brand.
