Few college basketball teams are more revered than the University of Michigan’s Fab Five. Michigan’s 1991 recruiting class of Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King, and Ray Jackson played with a brashness that made an instant impact on college hoops. Their play was matched by the moxie in how they dressed, donning baggy shorts, black sneakers and black socks all by Nike. The young phenoms ran the court with confidence beyond their years. Even though their run was limited to two seasons, the five true freshmen changed the way the college game was played and how players looked.

Their dominance ran parallel with Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls first three-peat from 1991-1993. The fact that both entities shared direct connections with Nike gave the brand a combo punch as it came to captivating fans’ attention and focusing it on what the players were wearing. The two driving forces shaped what cool looked like on the court and essential to transforming basketball footwear into a sales juggernaut for decades to come.

Michigan’s trendsetting history on the court stretches back to mid-‘80s with Jordan’s parent company Nike. The school’s hoops squad became one of eight chosen to receive team-issue Dunks as part of the “Be True to Your School” campaign. At the time, the move stood out as it created a color punch over the usual white-based shoes most teams sported. Michigan’s navy and maize, Syracuse’s orange and white and St. John’s red and white Dunks still resonate with buyers. It’s the reason why they’ve seen numerous reissues since the original release.  

Over the years, we’ve seen countless colleges connect with footwear brands for apparel, equipment and footwear partnerships. The Oregon Ducks benefit hugely from being the alma mater of Nike’s Phil Knight. Michael Jordan makes sure athletes at the University of North Carolina stay laced in the finest baby blue kicks and apparel on the planet. Likewise, UNC’s main rival Duke sported illustrious blue-based shoes. And lest we forget Kentucky, another original “Be True” school, whose basketball players have taken the court in both Nike and Jordan signature models over the years.

Each school gets their own unique kicks dipped in bold team colors with branding specific to them. Player exclusive versions gain their desirability since they seldomly launch with limited runs. Sneakerheads immediately started buzzing when North Carolina debuted special Jordans like the ‘Win Like ‘82’ pair during a preseason scrimmage in October 2017. Seeing the shoes first in that setting created an energy which fueled sales when the shoes released to retail a month later. Pairs like the ‘Oregon’ Air Jordan 3s and OVO Jordan 8s made for Kentucky pique the interest of even the most casual observer. While more and more player exclusives have made it to store shelves in recent times, most stay locked away in equipment closets where they’re reserved for student-athletes.

Thankfully, the sneaker gods in Beaverton, Oregon decided to give buyers a slice of the good life by releasing the ‘Michigan’ Air Jordan 12 Retro. The model is rich in history since its the shoe MJ wore for his legendary “Flu Game” performance. The Michigan-specific version bears close resemblance to the PSNY pair reserved for members of the school’s football squad. A supple navy nubuck dresses almost the entire upper save for a few hits of golden yellow on the eyelets, the midfoot TPU and heel tab. The M logo emblazoned on the right tongue is the biggest visual nod to the Wolverines.

Athletes still work as influencers with a strong sway over buyers, particularly youth actively participating in sports. Making special make-ups available for the general public to purchase makes perfect sense for footwear companies. Magical moments made on the court evoke memories marketing money can’t supply. The kids want to wear what they see players wearing on the TV screen and in YouTube highlight clips. They want the jersey, the shorts, the socks, and wristbands, too. And, of course, the shoes.

Of course, most sneaker enthusiasts young and old know their hoop dreams may never materialize into anything larger than that. But it doesn’t mean they still can’t have nice things, like the “Michigan” Jordan 12 Retro.

Keep up with John on Twitter and Instagram.

Grab your pair of the Air Jordan Retro 12 ‘Michigan’ on June 23rd at Finishline.com. Make sure you check with your local store for more release details.

Nearly 30 years after the first Air Jordan model released, there’s still no feeling like lacing up a fresh pair of MJ’s finest. Let’s be honest, with the past winter we had, it didn’t seem like summer could come fast enough. We’re getting what we wanted because the heat is definitely here. Peep these Jordan enthusiasts and collectors and how they rock their J’s, and don’t be scared to hit that follow button.

Make sure you post your best heat and tag @Finishline and use the #JordanFridays hashtag and maybe you’ll be featured here and gain some followers and have some sneaker blog glory! I mean, who doesn’t love some social media fame? Need to step up your game? Shop the latest Jordan Shoes now.

Being a dad can be tough. Between work, running errands, chores around the house, taking care of the kids, and all the other stuff that comes along with being a responsible father, it can be downright exhausting. The last thing on a lot of dads’ minds is shopping, especially when it comes to sneakers. Since Father’s Day is quickly approaching, what better way to help Dad out than to pick up a fresh pair of kicks for him? It’ll be one less thing he has to worry about. With that in mind, we made it really simple by breaking down the sneaker options for 5 types of dads. So browse the list, decide what kind of dad you have or know, and give him the gift he probably needs really badly. Just make sure to find out his shoe size first. And pick up some socks for him too. Dads aren’t too keen on buying socks either.

1. The OG Basketball DadAir Jordan XIV “Last Shot”

“They don’t make Jordans like they used to,” is this dad’s mantra. Some guys just can’t get themselves out of the ‘90s. Everything was better 20 years ago – the NBA games, the shoes, the commercials, the players themselves. Fortunately, the Air Jordan XIV “Last Shot” returns just in time for Father’s Day. The great thing about this model and colorway is that it hasn’t changed much since it’s original release in 1999, so Dad can’t complain about the quality. What better gift for the father who won’t stop reminiscing about Michael Jordan’s glory days and his last shot against the Utah Jazz in the ’98 Finals?

2. The Casual DadConverse Chuck Taylor

A post shared by Converse (@converse) on

Some dads aren’t really “sneaker” kinds of guys, and that’s ok. They wear dress shoes to work all week, and more casual boat shoes or loafers on the weekends. This doesn’t mean he shouldn’t have at least one pair of sneakers in his repertoire to mix things up a bit. Ease him into the wild world of sneaker culture slowly with the most classic silhouette of all time, the Chuck Taylor. 50 years ago, this was the standard sneaker for everyone. Incredibly, it’s still one of Nike’s top sellers every year. It’s not hard to tell why – everyone needs at least one pair of Chucks, especially your dad.

3. The Cozy DadNike Air Monarch IV

A post shared by daniel (@danieldoylex) on

This one is a no-brainer. For the dad who prefers to live his life in comfort, no matter where he is or what he’s doing. Whether he’s grilling burgers in the back yard, running to the hardware store for a weekend project, or dropping the kids off at school, the Air Monarch is the perfect shoe for whatever life throws at him. Featuring a full-length Air-Sole unit and available in a 4E width, the Monarch is the perfect combination of fit, style, and comfort for every dad. Challenge any dad to try on a pair of Monarchs, and he’ll never take them off.

4. The 10K DadAir Zoom Pegasus 35

For the dad who’s getting better with age – the man who keeps setting a new PR every time he enters a new 10K or half marathon. Nike has been making the Pegasus for the last 35 years because it’s one of the most trusted running shoes in the game. Ultra lightweight, full-length Zoom Air cushioning, and an array of flashy or muted colorways make this the perfect runner for any man who loves to get up at before the sun rises and put in 5-6 miles while everyone else is still asleep.

5. The Retro Runner DadNike Air Huarache Run ’91 QS

The Huarache resurgence continues with yet another OG Huarache colorway – this one in white/black/neon yellow/magenta. Plenty of dads rocked Huaraches when they were teenagers, and this model is still popular 27 years later. The snug neoprene inner sleeve provides comfort and support, and the large volume Air-Sole unit in the heel offers plenty of cushioning. A lot of dads out there don’t want the new flashy running shoes, but they still want something cool and comfy. The OG Huarache is the perfect option for the gym or the street.

It’s only right that Jordan Brand celebrates the 20th anniversary of the “Last Shot” by releasing the shoe that MJ was wearing in that iconic moment. Made famous by the shot MJ hit in game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz that propelled his Bulls to another championship victory. Serving as one of the first sneakers in history to have an official nickname devoid of any color affiliation, the Air Jordan 14 “Last Shot” helps tell the story of one of the most significant moments in NBA history. Securing MJ his sixth NBA championship with the Bulls, this iconic moment was both the final Bull’s Field Goal attempt of the game, and Jordan’s last in his Chicago career. Chasing one with 10 seconds on the clock, Jordan shook off Bryon Russell – following a steal of Karl Malone on the defensive end – and put up a 20-foot jumper from the top of key. Hitting nothing but net and giving the Bulls the lead with 5.2 seconds to go, this moment will live forever in NBA lure.

That iconic moment cemented the Air Jordan 14’s status as an all-time classic. Twenty years after MJ’s championship-sealing bucket was scored, the Air Jordan 14 Last Shot is making a triumphant return to its original form. Sporting an aggressive black leather stitched upper, the Air Jordan 14 was inspired by MJ’s love of high speed cars and was designed off the influence of theFerrari F355F1. The influence can be seen on the Jumpman shield that graces the outer panels. Red contrasting side vents served as nods to the Italian carmakers’ fluid mixture of luxury and high performance, two characteristics that became synonymous with the Jordan Brand and MJ’s level of play. The classic luxury car-inspired silhouette features a rich tumbled Black leather upper with Black suede accents. Contrast is provided by Red branding on the heel and the Yellow shield logo on the lateral side of the sneaker. A Red carbon fiber outsole plate completes the shoe’s classic and fast look
