Ahead of the Wolverines’ Big Ten showdown with arch rival Ohio State this weekend, the University of Michigan has joined forces with Public School and Jordan Brand for what is the Jumpman’s first-ever college football collaboration. Created as a part of the University of Michigan Bicentennial program and honoring the 150-year anniversary of the school’s maize and blue hues, the collab comes decked out in Michigan’s signature colors and includes a full range of travel apparel along with an Air Jordan 12 and khakis for Coach Harbaugh and the rest of the staff. The endeavor is extra special for PSNY co-founder Dao-Yi Chow: a Wolverine himself, the designer will act as Michigan’s honorary captain for the Ohio State matchup as he pays homage to his alma mater.
“This collab is unique because you’re doing it with the players and coaches in mind. Meeting coach (Harbaugh) was crazy. He’s this larger than life personality. Ultimately him being a Michigan man and coming back to the school, it’s the same thing with me,” said Chow. “To be able to team up with U of M, Jordan and my own brand; just building that capsule with my history, that’s something that’s super special to me.”
While there’s no word regarding a public release for the apparel or kicks, you can check out PSNY and Jordan’s Michigan collection above in its entirety. Michigan and Ohio State square off today in Ann Arbor at 12 p.m. ET.
