Sneaker Showcase: University of Kentucky

The 2012 NCAA National Champions are the University of Kentyucky Wildcats! The school that leads the NCAA in total basketball wins edged out the school with the second most wins in college history. Fittingly thirty years after Michael Jordan hit a game winning shot to lead UNC to a title, projected #1 draft pick Anthony Davids helped lead his team to a championship while wearing a pair of Air Jordan 10 “Royals” all tournament long.Air Jordan 10 Retro White-Old Royal-Stealth uploaded by MAD1ERAir Jordan 10 Retro White-Old Royal-Stealth uploaded by MAD1ER

A hard fought game between two basketball titans was not only a battle between the top two college basketball programs in history but between the two top basketball manufacturers in the world, Nike and adidas. Throughout the tournament adidas and the Jayhawks shined by unveiling the adiZero Crazy Light 2 as well as other sneakers in the adidas catalog like the adiZero Rose 2.5. Nike and the Kansas Jayhawks wore not only Jordans but Kobe VI’s, Zoom KD IV’s, Hyperdunk 2012’s and more throughout the tournament.

A longtime Nike school, now we wonder if we will be seeing any special University of Kentucky championship footwear for the eight time national champions.
