In this new series from Nice Kicks we profile great teams in history that also sported great sneakers. We break it down by the kicks on court and who rocked them. We kick off Kickin’ Back with the 2004-2005 University of North Carolina Men’s Basketball team. The Tar Heels boasted a star studded team that won both ACC and NCAA Championship honors.
The 04-05 North Carolina Tar Heels were known to have a solid rotation on court and on foot. Top notch releases from Jordan Brand and Nike carried Sean May, Raymond Felton, Rashad McCants, Marvin Williams, and a host of other great players during their huge season. Take a look back at this Tar Heel tribute.
Air Jordan 10
Perhaps a gift from MJ, the Air Jordan 10 “Ice Blue” was worn spotted on the feet of many Tar Heels during the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. Many of the team’s stars rocked this limited release as it held up on court as one of the better retros to hoop in.
