College basketball season is just weeks away, and to prepare, Nike is releasing team sneakers for three of the nation's top programs. Duke, Kentucky, and the University of North Carolina players are used to getting team gear, and now fans are getting the chance to buy team-inspired Nike Free 5.0 Trainers.

The Duke pair comes in a white, black and Game Royal colorway, while sporting team branding on the tongue, heel, and insole. The UNC sneakers follow the branding placement of the Duke pair, but use a Valor Blue, College Navy, and white colorway. The Kentucky version uses Game Royal, white, Deep Royal blue, and metallic silver, with Wildcat branding on the upper, heel, tongue, and insole. Now you don't have to be a big time basketball recruit to get team sneakers from some of top teams in the country. 

These sneakers will release on Oct. 30 for $110, at
