Jordan Brand will reportedly celebrate Michael Jordan's alma mater ahead of the 2020 NCAA Basketball Tournament with the release of a University of North Carolina-inspired Air Jordan 3

According to zSneakerheadz, the pair is rumored to resemble the color scheme of the Player Exclusive "UNC" Air Jordan 3 that was gifted to the athletes and staff of the collegiate program. While an early look has yet to surface, the kicks will feature a white-based leather upper, contrasted by light blue accents with "UNC" branding on the tongue. 

The forthcoming "UNC" Jordan 3 is expected to arrive at retailers on March 07, 2020 for $190.

UPDATE (01/23): upcycle.sneaks offers up this first in-hand look at the 2020 Air Jordan 3 "UNC" Retro. As expected, the pair features the same color blocking and details as North Carolina's PE, but removes the "UNC" tongue embroidery for a more traditional Jumpman emblem. As of now, this pair is still expected to arrive on March 7 for a retail price of $190.
