words // Luis Sanchez
For years, the University of Florida has not only been a force with the talent they display on the hardwood, but also the footwear rocked by some of the biggest names to ever come out of Gainesville.
The Billy Donovan coached Gators have hit the hardwood in a number of classics, rocking gems from Reebok and the Swoosh. Most notably, we've seen names such as Corey Brewer and David Lee rock Nike classics such as the Zoom Huarache 2K4 and the Air Max Penny 1.
Other favorites such as the Alphaproject-created Air Hyperflight were rocked for the Gators by James White, and we even saw the great Matt Walsh match UF's uniforms perfectly with the 'French Blue' Air Jordan 12 Retro back in 2003. Now with adidas, Matt Bonner spent his days at the University of Florida rocking notable styles such as the Shox BB4 for the Gators.
Continuing our March Madness celebration, enjoy a look back at the most notable sneakers worn by the University of Florida Gators.
