Pope Francis is officially in the sneaker game. His entry point comes via University of Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh, who presented the Pope with an exclusive pair of the "Michigan Air Jordan 5s" today.
Images from the event surfaced on Twitter, including one confirming Pope Francis as a size 10 and featuring a promo box specifically for His Holiness.
He wasn't the only one to get the sneakers either—according to the below tweet from Jeff Seidel, at least one archbishop got a pair.
Harbaugh also presented the Pope with a Michigan football helmet.
