There's a good argument that there's no greater event in sports than the annual March Madness basketball tournament. From the one-and-done game format, to the cinderella stories and marquee "amateur" names competing on the college level's grandest state, each year is filled with can't-miss hoops. 

To celebrate the school pride and frenzy that the tournament naturally creates each March and April, adidas Basketball recently launched a series of new themed options atop their X-Hale Post-Game sneaker. A fully customized pair will run you $90, with the option of adding a "Madness" or Splatter graphic on either a leather or mesh upper. 

Not only can you pick the panel palettes throughout the shoe's upper, but you can also add a custom lace dubret featuring adidas-sponsored school logos or mascots. There's an added laser midsole option as well, where you can add a school slogan or your own name or number. 

Check out several of the available school options below, and you can customize your own pair over at miadidas.com.
