It’s got to be the shoes…

One of the things that always intrigues me at the beginning of each basketball season is seeing what kicks the Tar Heels are going to be rocking on the court.

Above is a picture of some Air Jordan 2009 Carolina Editions.  These apparently came out during the NCAA Tournament last year but I don’t remember anybody in particular wearing them. Here’s another shot.

A lot of player wore the Air Jordan Jumpman Pro UNC Player Edition(PE) last year. Sorry for the unfortunate picture.

Don’t really have any ideas of what will be on the feet of UNC players this year. Most likely it will be part of the Jordan line, but I’m not sure of what. What would be amazing would be some Jordan reissues like the Jordan XII “Rising Sun” or something similar.

Remember when the Jason Capel/Kris Lang/Julius Peppers team wore these Jordan XIs. These were classy.

Or who remembers the Nike Air Adjust Force from the mid/late ’90s?

Anyways, I’m excited to see what happens tonight in the season opener. Especially with those ’57 throwbacks in action. I’ll try to get some pics while I’m cheering the team on.
