Continuing what is effectively a long-running tradition — all the while paying further homage to MJ’s alma mater — the Air Jordan 38 is now joining the Tar Heels much like many a past signature.
This colorway uses “Light Marine,” “Astronomy Blue,” “Royal Pulse,” “Flash Crimson,” “Barely Volta,” and “Blue Tint” throughout.
The upper boasts various shades of blue, complemented by eye-catching Crimson accents that add a vibrant touch.
Noteworthy elements include the “X-Plate” technology inspired by the Air Jordan 8, alongside Zoom Strobel and Cushion 3.0 cushioning for optimal performance.
