Get a first look at the Air Jordan 2 Alumni. So what’s this new colorway of the Air Jordan 2 all about and what’s up with the date on the heel? Well, this colorway of the Air Jordan 2 actually pays tribute to the North Carolina vs. UCLA Alumni game that took place on June 28th, 1987 (date on heel of shoe) at Pauley Pavilion.
During this point in time, Jordan had just completed his 3rd season in the NBA with the Chicago Bulls but still took time to represent his alma mater on the hardwood one more time. The Air Jordan 2 comes with a leather upper, dressed in a White, Black, Red and University Blue color scheme that represents both the Chicago Bulls and North Carolina Tar Heels. Most of the shoe comes in a Bulls theme, while the North Carolina vibes can be found on the heel region, which also house the “MJ” and “6/28/87” branding as a nod to the date the game was played.
