PJ Tucker is one of the most biggest NBA sneakerheads in the league right now. Not afraid to bust out any shoe, no matter how old (as long as it is a Nike or Jordan shoe), Tucker on-court is must-watch TV for any sneaker fan.
Like most sneakerheads, Tucker also has a refined Instagram page full of rare PEs and shoes that he may go play in. This past weekend, Tucker showed off two pairs of Jordan IIIs, one in the “UNC” colorway, and the other in the “Michigan” colorway.
The “UNC” colorway utilizes a white base with Cement Grey elephant print. The shoe is accented by the UNC Blue on the sock liner and midsole. The shoe is completed with UNC branding on the inside and outside of the tongue.
The “Michigan” pair had previously been teased late last year as part of Michigan Football’s season. Coming in the Navy Blue and Varsity Yellow with the familiar block M on the tongue, Tucker captioned that photo with “Jalen/Jimmy/Jawan/Chris/Ray #solereason.” Ironically enough, the Fab Five (who the caption lists) lost to UNC in the 1993 NCAA Championship in the infamous “timeout” game.
Check out both shoes above, as they are unlike to see a retail release.
