Entry #30 - AF25 Pujols Edition

We're flashing back to the 2007 season, when Albert Pujols was sporting custom Air Force 25 shoes.

Entry #26 - Hoyas Nike legend

If you have a copy of Scoop Jackson's fantastic book Sole Provider, turn to page 32.

You'll see Patrick Ewing is wearing the Nike Legend - on his shirt. John Thompson and Nike teamed up for a sweet moment of athletic outfitting, giving the Hoyas little Legend shoes on their sleeves.

NCAA made it a limited time promotion.
