It’s Got to be the Shoes: UNC Basketball On Court Sneakers 2012-2013

UNC Air Jordan 4 IV PE Nike

Back to our regularly-scheduled posting. One of our favorite, if not most time-consuming, posts to compile is back with the complete list of sneakers and kicks worn on court by the North Carolina Tar Heels men’s basketball team during the 2012-2013 season.

We definitely saw our share of retro Jordans and current Jordan brand UNC team exclusives, but we also saw the likes of Kevin Durant and LeBron James signatures.

The most noteworthy sneaker item of the year actually occurred after the season ended when several members of the team tweeted out some very exclusive shoes. Pictured above, the UNC PE Air Jordan IV in a Carolina mock-up had sneakerheads and Tar Heel fans drooling. Unfortunately, we’ll most likely never see these in a retail setting. Shame.

Here’s what the shoe breakdown looked like heading into the ACC season.
