March Madness is here, and Nike and Jordan Brand have come through accordingly to bless schools with some fire PEs. Coinciding with the first day of this year's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, Jordan has given us a look at a series of Air Jordan 5 colorways designed exclusively for six Jumpman-sponsored universities.

Leading the way is the fan-favorite University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill iteration, while the University of Michigan, University of Florida, Georgetown University, Marquette University, and the University of Oklahoma pairs all stand out in their own right as well.

Each PE appropriately showcases the respective school's colors and is decked out with elephant print on the upper. The tongues then bear the university logos in place of the traditional Jumpman insignia, while Nike Air branding is embroidered on the heels. White midsoles are implemented below and decorated with the contrasting shark teeth design. Translucent outsoles complete each look.

Unfortunately, these Air Jordan 5 colorways are PEs (player exclusives) for the six universities, meaning they won't release to the public. Many suspect similar variations will launch at some point, however, à la the Air Jordan 4 "University Blue." For some collegiate-themed sneakers you can get a hold of, check out our favorite UNC-inspired kicks here.
