As you’re probably aware of by now, Michigan made the jump from Adidas to Nike in a very, very lucrative apparel deal. With the Nike deal in hand, it was also announced back in 2015 that Michael Jordan’s “Jumpman” brand would also be a part of that deal.
Now heading into their second season with the Jordan brand partnership, Michigan recently revealed on Twitter two pairs of custom Nikes for the upcoming season:
A new season calls for some new @Jumpman23, how about these XXXII lows! Can't wait for the season to get here!#GoBlue 〽️ pic.twitter.com/iIX5ny8aHJ— Michigan Basketball (@umichbball) September 8, 2017
But wait ... these new @Jumpman23 Superfly's also made their way into the 〽️ locker room! #GoBlue pic.twitter.com/SJoEsfpDQw— Michigan Basketball (@umichbball) September 8, 2017
The two pairs of shoes for Michigan shown above are the Air Jordan 32 Low and Super.Fly 2017, with the Air Jordan 32 Low being one of the very first variations revealed since the show was unveiled a few weeks ago.
While I’m partial to Nikes extensive line of running shoes, Michigan’s players (and more importantly, their recruits) have taken a liking to wearing the iconic player’s brand of Nikes.
What are your thoughts on the new shoes? Like, dislike?
