As the Alphadunk continues its stroll down memory lane, it makes a quick stop in 1991 – the year the best freshman class in college history was ever assembled. That would be none other than Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King, and Ray Jackson of the Michigan Wolverines, deified for their long shorts, irreverent swagger, and choice selection of footwear. During that first run to the championship game, the quintet was oft seen in the Air Flight Huarache, a lightweight basketball shoe intuitively designed by Tinker Hatfield and Eric Avar that stripped away excess material – even the Swoosh. In continuing its tribute to the earth-shattering blips in hoops history, the Nike Alphadunk is dressed up in the signature black, purple, and blue colorway of that ’92 classic, offering up its own take on the logo while infusing it with the signature “clip” on the heel. If you needed any more assurance about this colorway’s inspiration, the axial Huarache logo is embroidered on the heel of the right shoe. Check out a closer look ahead, and stay tuned for a drop at Nike retailers for $170.
