The Drop Jordan sneakers series are mostly inspired by stories of success and triumph that were synonymous with Hall of Famer and superstar athlete Michael Jordan. And the Air Jordan 6 “UNC” has also followed in the footsteps of its predecessors as it seeks to go back in time into a chapter of the legend’s life when he was plying his trade at a little known North Carolina colleague team.
Back then, Air Jordan 11 Win Like 96 was only at the start of what was going to be a blistering career and even then, at just a tender age, he was already starting to live up to the world-class billing fans had already placed on his head. Ultimately, he would surpass expectations in scintillating fashion and hence how the concept of these new sneakers came about. They serve to be a memorable and ever-present reminder of where it all started; they tell the tale of the boy before he became legend.
