March Madness: The Best Sneakers Worn By Syracuse

words // Zack Schlemmer

Syracuse basketball has been synonymous with Nike since the days of the Dunk, when the university was one of the select few teams across the nation to receive their own colorway of the now iconic model in 1985. All these years later, the Orangemen are still lacing up some of the freshest kicks across the nation—especially if you're a fan of the color orange.

In between the Dunk and current kicks like the "Gumbo League" KD VI worn by Tyler Ennis in the team's shocking loss to Dayton in this year's tournament, Syracuse has laced up some of the best kicks ever seen on the NCAA court. Included in the arsenal are the original Air Jordan XI, Zoom Flight '95, Air Flightposite, Zoom GP and even the Air Speed Turf trainer famously worn by John Wallace back in 1996 (you'll also see another classic trainer worn a few years earlier).

Check out all of the best kicks worn 'Cuse as we continue our March Madness retrospective of the top sneaker school in NCAA basketball history.
