The perks of being a Jordan Brand school aren't limited to the basketball teams.

North Carolina Football had a pretty rough 2017, but they're kicking off the new year on a better note. Today, the team shared its exclusive make-up of the Air Jordan 3, styled in the colors of Michael Jordan's alma mater. In addition to the classically-blocked "Cement" scheme, the retros feature embroidered UNC logos on the tongues.

Michigan Football was also given a team exclusive colorway of the Jordan 3, with Oklahoma and Florida new to the family. In non-exclusive news, the highly anticipated "Black Cement" retro returns in February.

UPDATE (05/21): Detailed images of the Tar Heels' exclusive Jordan 3s have surfaced courtesy of English Sole. The new looks give a closer view at the sneaker's finer points including an argyle-printed insole.

While a release for this Jordan 3 is unlikely, a "UNC" Air Jordan 4 is expected to drop in 2019.
