I am a sneakerhead. My first love is the Air Jordan line, but there have been many great kicks designed by other great athletes. So I made a list of 10 sneakers in no particular order that pays respects to few other sneakers and the men who played or trained in them.
From Bo Jackson to Shawn Kemp, prepare to feast your eyes on some incredible footwear. Not only did the shoes help bring some athletes into more spotlight, but a few of these sneakers had amazing campaign ads. For instance, once I see Bo Jackson’s Nike Air Trainer SC High, I immediately think of the “Bo Knows” slogan.
Since there are so many great kicks out there I have not included any current athlete’s sneakers like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant.
