Looking at this sneaker at first glance the first thing that came to mind was Michigan’s Fab Five. The combination of navy blue and gold/yellow makes me think of Jalen Rose, Chris Webber and Juwan Howard.
If you’re familiar with the team and their story then this Nike Air Stepback may also remind you of them. This retro-inspired basketball sneaker from Nike comes dressed in a Midnight Navy leather overlays and felt on the side panels, toebox and tongue. Metallic Gold accents have been added on Swoosh, tongue branding and heel branding. A black sole unit with a visible Air unit finishes off this Michigan-inspired Nike Air Stepback that can be found now at select Swoosh accounts.
