        Is it just my imagination, or did we wear something similar to that but with a winged helmet in the front for a couple games during the Manny/Peedi tourney year?

        Also, when you’re talking Michigan basketball shoes, it’s gotta be the black nikes the fab five wore with the maize jerseys and black socks.

          no these are the shoes. manny and the whole team wore them for several games i only got them because i saw the team wearing them

            Gotcha. I remember being one of the few who loved those shoes.

    i kinda want our recruits to see this… as a former high school player, the amount of time i invested in finding the perfect, swag-tastic pair of shoes was ridiculous…but i feel that is true for most players… i know it isnt important at all, but if im a teenage kid, im definitely interested in some cool kicks. just another perk of picking Michigan.


    Maui shoes.

    The guy made a goof – he calls the Air Force Max the #1 shoe in college basketball history (on a different page) but then calls it the #3 shoe in Michigan basketball history.  Same author for both.

      And he called the Air Jordan XI the “greatest sneaker of the 90s,” but had them ranked fourth behind two other pairs from the 90s.
