Release info and details of the Air Jordan 2 Alumni continue to remain a mystery. Will it release on its own? Will it release as a part of the Air Jordan x Converse Pack? We don’t have those answers yet, but what we do know is that it’s on its way.
The Air Jordan 2 Alumni is a special version of the Jordan 2 that takes time to pay tribute to the classic North Carolina vs. UCLA Alumni Game at Pauley Pavilion on June 28, 1987. Micheal Joran (along with other NBA stars such as James Worthy, Kenny Smith and Reggie Miller) played in that game, which took place after Jordan’s third year in the NBA. During that game, Michael Jordan decided to wear this special version of the Air Jordan 2 version which was known back then as the Air Jordan 2 UNC PE. The Air Jordan 2 Alumni comes in a White, Varsity Red and Black color scheme. Giving it that UNC feel is the Carolina Blue noted on the heel tab of the shoe. Special detailing which was not on the PE version include the special branding on the heels that reads, “MJ” and “6/28/87” as a nod to the date the UNC vs. ULCA Alumni game was played. Scheduled to release sometime in June for $190, stay tuned as more info begins to surface.
