Win Like ’82


Some of the league’s greatest players ever got their first national audience during the 1982 college championship game. Among them was Michael Jordan, then a 19-year-old freshman, who rose for a jumper with just 17 seconds left to put his team up for good. He would continue to rise all the way to the sport’s pinnacle. The latest Air Jordan XI colorway, sporting University Blue hits, pays homage to his alma mater and the ’82 victory that launched his legacy.

MJ famously wore his collegiate practice shorts under his professional uniform. The Air Jordan 11 Win Like ‘82 celebrates this ritual by featuring a University Blue Jumpman and Midnight Navy patent leather that ties back to his alternate practice short colorway. The rest of the shoe is done in a white nylon mesh while a white midsole and icy blue translucent outsole wrap things up.
