Some unreleased Air Jordan models include the Air Jordan IV "UNC" and the Air Jordan V “Clippers” Chris Paul exclusive. Michael Jordan’s popularity as an NBA star led to many different models of Air Jordan shoes, but these unique sneakers were never released.
The “UNC” version of the Air Jordan IV paid tribute to the University of North Carolina, Jordan’s alma mater. Although Jordan wore Converse on the court during his college days, the shoes’ light blue palette celebrates his college's school colors.
As a signature Jordan brand athlete, L.A. Clippers star Chris Paul receives his share of player exclusives, including his own custom Air Jordan V sneakers. The shoes are red and blue in homage to the Clippers' team colors.
