Few teams in the college ranks achieved mythical status quite like Phi Slamma Jamma, the University of Houston squad lead by Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler known for their inventive and powerful in-game dunks. Coming soon to House Of Hoops, a special edition ‘Phi Slamma Jamma’ Big Nike will be dropping, complete with details from the team like Coach Guy Lewis’ trademark plaid sideline wear as well as icons from the nickname along the collar. You’ll even find a broken backboard along the tongue tag. We’ll be sure to keep you posted once an official release date is revealed, and in the meantime, let us know what you think of these, and what other college teams would like to see inspire a future shoe?
