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.

These kicks go on sale this Saturday on the SNKRS app in limited quantities.
