The Super Bowl is less than a week away and in honor of the biggest sporting event of the year lurking around the corner, we stalked the rosters of the last two squads left in the NFL to see which team was more sneaker savvy – the Denver Broncos or the Seattle Seahawks. We were pleasantly surprised with how much each team personified the athlete turned sneakerhead narrative. While the Seattle Seahawks have the advantage of being Nike’s go-to team thanks to how close they are to Nike’s campus and that obsidian and volt scheme showcasing the Swoosh’s ability to redesign uniforms, don’t forget that Nike was commissioned to overhaul the Broncos look back in 1997.
Each team’s secondary is littered with sneaker aficionados, whether it be guys like the Broncos’ Robert Ayers who has a particular inclination for exclusives like the “ParaNorman” Nike Air Foamposite Ones and the “Entourage” Nike LeBron 8s or Seattle’s Earl Thomas with his well-documented Air Jordan connection. And even though the Broncos squad had players rocking both colorways of the most recent Air Yeezy 2, you have to give props to the Hawks’ dedication to customs and love for NIKEiD. So which team has the best sneakers? We picked the 11 best per team and laid it out for you below, so check it out and give us your thought on which team hasd the better sneakers.
