Our Favorite Athletes to Wear Nikes & Jordans at the University of Michigan

The University of Michigan and Nike have a storied history with many of the Victors’ greatest athletes scoring touchdowns and putting down dunks in Nikes and Jordans. Focusing on basketball but also showing love to a football favorite, see some of the prolific Wolverines that made history in Nike.

Glen Rice

Glenn Rice Nike Delta Force

Before Glen Rice was a 99 level 3-Point Shooter in NBA Live, he was a standout forward at the University of Michigan. The Heat turned Hornet NBA star laced up the Nike Air Delta Force High en route to winning a National Championship in Ann Arbor back in 1989.

Chris Webber

Sporting the Swoosh during his two-year stay in Ann Arbor, Chris Webber helped Huaraches hit and black Barkleys boom. The Nike Air Flight Huarache and Nike Air Force Max are synonymous with C Webb and the Fab Five, still creating nostalgia in retro life.

Jalen Rose

The point guard that propelled the Fab Five, Jalen Rose was a figurehead that represented the phenomenal freshman stylistically in both attitude and apparel. The Nike Air Dynamic Flight, Nike Air Flight Huarache and even the Air Jordan 9 all got burn from Jalen during his college career.

Juwan Howard

A certified sneakerhead in the amateur, professional and retired ranks, Juwan Howard saw his star blossom at the University of Michigan. Entering an early relationship with Nike while in college, Juwan rocked everything from the famous Nike Air Force Max to the also awesome Nike Air Maestro.

Jimmy King & Ray Jackson

Jimmy King and Ray Jackson were the wings that helped the Fab Five soar. Both swingmen laced up loads of Nike favorites during their days in Ann Arbor, including the likes of the Nike Air Strong and Nike Air Unlimited.

Maurice Taylor

Ushering in the post-Fab Five era, Maurice Taylor took to the hardwood in a variety of famous models. The Nike Air Zoom Flight 95 in the “Carbon Fiber” colorway was a popular pair for Mo, as was the “Concord” Air Jordan 11.

Robert “Tractor” Traylor

A fan favorite on and off the court, Robert “Tractor” Traylor is a legend in Michigan hoops. When he was getting buckets or breaking backboards in Ann Arbor, #54 was known to wear some of the best from Nike and Jordan Brand, ranging from the Nike Air Flight Max to the “Flint” Air Jordan 13.

Louis Bullock & Robbie Ried

Ann Arbor’s amateur version of the Splash Brothers years before Steph and Klay hit the Bay, Louis Bullock and Robbie Ried were known to pull from absolutely anywhere. Though the post-Fab Five era may not have seen the deep tourney runs of the diaper dandies before them, there was still heat as the Nike Air Penny Max 1 and Jordan Team One got burn in the backcourt.

Charles Woodson

You’ve gotta be a boss to win the Heisman trophy as a defensive player. Charles Woodson was, well, that: a boss. The cornerback/wide receiver/return man brought Lloyd Carr a National Championship in 1997, capping off a collegiate career that saw him pick passes and score touchdowns in the likes of the Nike Air Speed Turf and Nike Air Pro Streak Max in cleated versions.

Jamal Crawford

Hooping in a headband, Jamal Crawford brought his Seattle swag to the Midwest during his days at Michigan. Only staying for one year, Jamal was a fan favorite, zipping up the Nike Air Flightposite One on occasion.

ENTER THE EDC VIP PACKAGE GIVEAWAY HERE
presented by Nice Kicks & Trap Nation


Comfort and style are a major key to getting through the three day weekend. From Nike to adidas, Converse, and Vans, you’ll find selects to wear to EDC Las Vegas. Whether you love to shuffle, rage, dubstep, or put your trap elbows up, there’s a perfect shoe for all types of festival goers. Read ahead to find out the best sneakers to wear to EDC Vegas 2017 and remember to be safe, hydrate, and make it the best time of your life with friends.

Nike Sock Dart

No time to tie your laces? No worries. You don’t even need socks for these, honestly. The Nike Sock Dart is literally a sock with a strap that keeps your foot in place. Comfort and style is top notch on this shoe and it’s on sale for only $ 65 in all black online or you can visit the North Las Vegas Premium Outlet Nike Store to cop.


Nike SB Janoski

This is by far Nike’s most popular festival sneaker which is actually made for skaters. The classic black pair will surely last you three days bouncing around EDC and they only cost $ 85 at Niketown located in Caesar’s Forum Shops on the Las Vegas strip. You can get them on sale for only $ 49 if you shop online with Nordstrom.


adidas NMD

Who doesn’t own a pair of NMD’s? This is a favorite worn by DJs such as Martin Garrix, Dillion Francis, and DJ Snake constantly to play shows. The NMD is easy to kick on and comfortable enough for three days of partying at the KineticField, BassPOD, or any of the other stages inside EDC. They’re also machine washable, major festival key. 12AmRun boutique is the best place to find these in every color possible. Tell them Nice Kicks sent you!


Vans Authentic Lite 

Classics, but better. Vans updated your favorite model to be way more comfortable with an UltraCush insert. They’re now as weightless as a paperclip, so you can shuffle your heart away without your feet paying the price on day 2 of EDC. Also, Chainsmokers happen to love this style a lot. Check out that Ultracush insole below. Cozy af.


 

Converse Chuck Taylor 2 Low

The shuffler’s special! No sneaker is more iconic in festival culture than the Chuck Taylor. While you may have a pair of the originals, you definitely need the updated version. Converse made them lighter and more comfortable by inserting a Lunarlon insole. It’s like wearing Chucks with a cozy Dr.Scholl’s insert, but way better.


adidas Ultra Boost

The most comfortable sneaker of all-time is a festival must. Yes, the UltraBoost expensive at $ 180, but this shoe is durable enough to last many festivals. You can find some of your favorite DJs such as Diplo and Lost Kings wearing the UltraBoost. Jump to every bass drop knowing you have the best sneakers for your feet to survive a festival.

Pro Tip: When your UltraBOOST gets super dirty, simply toss them in the washer machine and they’re back to looking brand spanking new ready for HARD Summer after you raged at EDC.


Vans Slip-On LITE

If you love customizing your entire outfit, there’s no shoe more perfect than Slip-Ons. The traditional white will be easiest to add your own flavor to, but make sure you get the new Lite version with UltraCush insoles. Just like the Authentics, you’ll be experiencing new levels of comfort from Vans.


adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2

This year’s ultimate flex shoe at EDC will be Yeezys. Hopefully you’ve been lucky enough to get at least one pair so far. Sure Hypebeasts may be cry seeing you break these out, but the best festival deserves the hottest sneakers for a once in a lifetime experience. If Kanye West can jump around stage in his pair, you can take on EDC with yours. Don’t trip if your Yeezys get extremely dirty, you can easily toss these kicks in the washer just like the UltraBoost. Trust me, I’m a sneaker doctor.
