The Best Sneakers Worn During The NCAA Season

words // Nick DePaula

As the annual March Madness NCAA tournament kicks off tonight, what better time than now to take a look back at some of the many, many impressive sneakers worn throughout the 2013-2014 collegiate season.

It may have been over three years ago now that Gilbert Arenas first put us on a nightly watch for what he was wearing at the pro stage during his "Sneaker Champ" season, but this year, it's the college players around the nation that have been stealing the spotlight with their shoes.

While we're all familiar with the team bank Hyperdunk, Soldier VII, Kobe 8 and Crazy Light models, it was everything from older Retro Jordans to dated Kobe and LeBron signatures that caught our attention.

Take a look at the best sneakers worn during the NCAA season below, and let us know your favorites in the comments section.
