    Bought these from a buddy of mine about 6 months ago he was in a bind so I gave him a couple hundred bucks for em. he said he got them off of eBay for a pretty penny. Just checking on em I would like to know more about them I think they look great but not sure about authenticity of them I didn't even ask him about a box or anything I just bought the shoes cause I'm a Carolina fan. They are the football players issued ones it looks like. Thanks

    The pair in question is a pair of fakes like these: . There were only 250 legit pairs of these made. A legit pair would have cost him between $5-10,000.
    Here are pix of a legit pair for comparison:

    yeah but those say basketball on the inside tag. The basketball ones haven't even been released yet. Those are rumored to be dropping in March of 2020. So that's not even the pair that I have I have a pair of the football ones that we're made for the football team. The ones that the players got in trouble for selling. Here's a picture of an ebay listing for a pair. Notice they say football on the inside of the tag. Any more information would be greatly appreciated.

    No, read what you saw again. It said they're coming out in 2020 WITHOUT the unc logo. Th3 pics referenced are still fine albeit basketball instead of football

    So yea, fake

    Crappy tongue and embroidery
    Back tabs

    Listen to timmybrixxx

    "It is estimated that roughly 250 pairs were made and were issued to Jordan Brand Friends and Family as well as the University’s Football and Basketball teams."

    I wouldn't lie to you man. The 2020 pair has no reference images yet. So all of the sites are using the previous PEs as picture reference. As stated the General Release 2020 pair WILL NOT have the NC tongue branding. The Basketball and Football pairs were the same just a different tag on the inside of the right shoe. The shoes you have posted have many tells that they are replicas. On top of the price you paid. If this friend was truly hard up for $ and was sitting on a $10,000 pair of shoes that if Legit would literally sell themselves. Why would he sell them for a couple hundred?

    Here is another example of the fake pairs out there right now. https://www.realkicks.net/air-jordan-3-unc-pe-s-4477

    After saying all of this, in the end the shoes are the closest thing that most of us would get to an actual wearable PE. They do have some value like $100 or so used. The reps run about $150-$200 New.

    Well thanks for the help. kind of stinks now tho now that I know they're reps. I really did like them. Guess I can't wear em anymore. I don't even talk to that dude anymore I bought em from. He stole some tools from me. And it looks like 200 dollars.

    Yeah, sorry man. You could maybe flip them for ~ $90-$100 maybe and get some of your $ back. Or just wear them as beaters to cut grass in and stuff.
