Just in time for the start of March Madness comes a shoe bursting at the seams with basketball history.
The Bruin was the very first basketball silhouette from Nike. In 1972, when the Bruin first appeared, there was very little in the way of variety on the basketball market, so when Portland Trail Blazers guard Geoff Petrie debuted the swoosh branded low tops, it made quite a splash. The Bruin gave Nike inroads into supplying college basketball teams with footwear, and quickly became a staple on courts across the country.
Nike has reproduced the Bruin in its historical form. Leather, nylon, rubber, white, and blue are the only words you really need to describe it. There’s no need to embellish such a momentous shoe, with design, or words.
If a size is not listed, it is sold out.
