Jordan Brand Gearing Up for March Madness

The all-new Air Jordan 2012 is designed to encourage today's athletes to rethink performance.  This year's model builds upon the Air Jordan 2011's two midsole modular system by featuring two interchangeable inner sleeves and three interchangeable midsoles for performance customization.  

For this year's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, Jordan Brand schools UNC, Marquette, Georgetown and Cal all have the option of wearing the Air Jordan 2012 in their school's colorways. The Air Jordan 2012 will give Jordan Brand schools the ability to customize for their unique playing styles and for fit preference by offering six different configurations. 

University of North Carolina already received a University Blue/Grey colorway of the Air Jordan 2012 in early February, but for the NCAA tournament, UNC has a new White/University Blue colorway to wear throughout March. They also have the option of wearing the Jordan CP3.V in a White/University Blue colorway. 

Marquette University will have the option to wear a White/Midnight Navy-University Blue and Gold colorway of the Air Jordan 2012 in addition to the Jordan Fly Wade 2 in a University Gold/Obsidian colorway.  

The University of California-Berkeley gets the Air Jordan 2012 in a White/Midnight Navy-Gold colorway with Georgetown University having the option to wear a Grey/Midnight Navy colorway (not pictured).
