New year, new PEs — at least for the UCONN Huskies.
We can already tell that 2018 is going to be a huge year of new sneaker releases and exclusives. However, this here is a sneaker we probably won’t see release.
As we are only a few months away from the March Madness brackets, it looks like Nike Basketball has blessed the UCONN men’s basketball squad with their very own Nike Kobe AD ‘Mamba Mentality’ UCONN PE.
The mid-top silhouette features the school’s team colors of navy blue, white, and red. Sporting a multilayer mesh upper, it flaunts hits of white on the Swoosh and Kobe logo on the tongue. The upper is also supported by Flywire cables.
Moving downward, you will notice that sneaker features a full-length Lunarlon cushioning system, and is painted with a navy and white speckle pattern. Other highlights include the Connecticut’s Huskies’ logo on the left heel, while red covers the outsole and completes the look.
The UCONN Huskies are currently 0-1 in Conference play, and 7-6 overall. They have their next matchup tomorrow against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane.
