The 25 Greatest Sneakers in Michigan Basketball History

The 25 Greatest Sneakers in Michigan Basketball History

The website Complex has published an article (with great pictures!) of the best shoes Michigan players have worn through history. It's an awesome look back on the days of Ricky Green all the way to today. I remember most of these shoes, but forgot how many different styles the Fab 5 wore...many wearing different styles at the same time.

Your #1 shoe:

1. Nike Air Flight Huarache 

When: 1992

Who: Chris Webber 

After 1992, college basketball was never the same. Five kids from Michigan got together and decided they were going to rock baggy shorts, play with some major swag, and take the game by storm. It was also the year Nike released one of its most unconventional sneakers of all time, the Air Flight Huarache. Tinker Hatfield designed a shoe unlike anything before, inspired by a Mayan sandal. The shoe was one of the first to be stripped of unnecessary materials for a lightweight masterpiece. The baddest shoes on the baddest squad.
