The University of Michigan is one of those schools that is blessed to be part of the Nike family, meaning its more high-profile sports teams get gifted with Player Edition Jordan Brand sneakers from time to time. The latest, which was shared on the Michigan Football Twitter feed on Christmas, is an exotic Air Jordan 1 done up in the navy and maize colors of the University.

A notable feature of this PE, aside from the University color blocking, is the choice of what appear to be reptile and stingray leathers, giving the project a more custom or bespoke feel than previous college PEs.

Of course, as is the case with most University PEs, these sneakers will only be available to select members of the Michigan Wolverines Football team and coaching staff. Anyone else that wants to get their hands on a pair will need to have extremely good connections to either Michigan or Beaverton, Oregon, or very deep pockets.

Take a look at the first shot of the University Michigan Nike Air Jordan 1 PE and stay tuned for further looks at the kicks.
