 Nike Big Nike High LE - Phi Slamma Jamma

Though the early draft entry trend that picked up steam in the mid-90s has continued and diluted the overall collection of talent in NCAA men’s basketball, we have memories of a ton of great teams from yesteryear that stayed together for several years.  Key among those was the high-flying ‘Phi Slamma Jamma’ crew that made three Final Fours between 1982 and ’84.

Though they never won a championship and were victim to the Cinderella NC State team that won on a miracle alley-oop in 1983, this group is still widely remembered for exhibiting athleticism well beyond their era.  Key Slamma Jammas Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler reunited with the Houston Rockets in 1995, leading the Rockets to Olajuwon’s second straight NBA championship.

As for the shoes, they’re a throwback to the hardwood fraternity, as evinced by the Greek letter Phi, LeBron’s Dunkman insignia and a backboard representing their three letters of unity.  Red, black and white plaid on the side panels honouring Coach Guy Lewis contrasts the red and white leather that make up the rest of the upper, while a college-styled ‘Nike’ on the heel adds a subtle twist on the Big Nike design.  The first House of Hoops exclusive to draw inspiration from college players rather than NBA legends, these joints will probably drop at Foot Locker‘s specialty stores well after March Madness has drawn to a close.  Stay tuned to Sneaker News for updates.
