The Gators of Florida repeated as National Champions beating the Ohio State Buckeyes, but in either case, Nike claimed another victory in collegiate men’s basketball and solidified its place as the shoes of champions. With this Gators win, Nike-wearing teams have won 7 of the last 8 championships.
In their honor, here are pictures of Florida’s starting five wearing their Nikes.
Sadly to say, I’ve been stumped. I haven’t been able to identify the Nikes worn by Al Horford and Taurean Green. Horford’s wearing a slightly older sneaker that’s no longer on sale. I think it’s some type of UpTempo model. For Green, I couldn’t find any clear shots of him and his shoes. Also, that black on black colorway with little highlights make it tough to pick up details. Can anyone help me out here?
