Gear Watch: Michigan Uniform Socks available on Footlocker

Submitted by Hard Gay on March 14th, 2013 at 1:09 AM

I'm not sure if anyone else on the board is a gear head, but the socks that the basketball team has been wearing are available on Eastbay/Footlocker.com if anyone is interested.

Colors available are the standard Blue with maize trim, as well as the Bleed out all maize socks.

These socks provide excellent cushion and moisture wicking, but are a tad on the pricey side.  The all-maize ones are a lot less neon in person.

I am going on vacation for a few days tomorrow, I have only had 2 drinks here, but I am oddly considering picking up the blue ones.  If they aren't too thick, they might work well under hockey skates as well.

I don't think you're serious, but if you are, go to miadidas.com. You can customize the shoe, the Adidas Crazy Fast, pretty much the exact same. You can even add a block M to the back of the shoe. As for the socks, they're extremely comfortable. I've got both colors, and the adidas website also sells the socks that we wore with the throwback unis against Penn St. http://www.adidas.com/us/product/mens-training-mi-team-speed-sock/Q4531…

Well, I bought a pair.  If only I could had worn these under my suit at my grandpa's funeral last year.  Nobody would had questioned the "odd" choice of sock color, lol.

If one owns a pair of these socks, the receiver gloves MDen sells, and any of the stripey alternate jerseyz from the past two years, one can go from zero-to-doofus in about sixty seconds or less.

Once you've crossed the fashion bridge into wearing a sports jersey, does it really matter what the jersey looks like?  

I don't think these socks look half bad.  Obviously, I'd only wear them to the gym or to go running or whatever, but who's going to judge me on my workout attire?

to black shoes with black socks.  That is Michigan basketball.

And for god sakes, where the standard maize unis in the BTT and the NCAA.  Enough with the alternate.
