Nike gives 100% all the time and it rings true when outfitting some of the NCAA’s best teams. Nike’s founder Phil Knight makes sure that his alma mater Oregon is taken care of, but top basketball squads like Duke and Ohio State are not far behind.
When a new shoe is designed it doesn’t hurt that Oregon gets dibs before anyone else. After all, the school inspired and sparked Phil Knight and company’s initial idea. Oregon players can expect player exclusive shoes in models like the Nike Hyperfuse, Lunar TR, and even Air Jordans.
Duke has reached legendary status in the world of college basketball, so its only right for Nike to give them a stamp of approval. Duke players are privileged to don exclusives from the LeBron and Kobe lines. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII “Duke” was recently released to the public.
LeBron James didn’t attend college, and for good reason because he was born for the court. Although LeBron left his hometown Cavaliers, Nike chose to keep the LeBron name within his state. The top ranked Ohio State Buckeyes rock any and every LeBron. Their latest player exclusive comes in the form of the Nike Zoom Soldier VI.
