The superstars of the NBA and the shoes they wear to battle will always be connected forever. Sure, to some they may be nothing more than a hot pair of sneakers to beat up. Yet to others, they are so much more...
Do you know what shoes Michael Jordan wore during "The Last Shot"?
Yep, the Air Jordan XIV.
Guess which pair Vince Carter rocked when he dunked over the 7-footer from France?
No doubt, it was the Nike Shox BB4.
Do any of you know what exactly those are that KryptoNATE is holding up?
A special pair of Nike Foamposite Lites. You'll be lucky to snatch a pair of those lime green joints for $600 or $700. Infact, your even lucky if you can even have the opportunity to shell out your money on them. Seriously, average price of those run around $1000.
I can only imagine what exactly the hardcore sneaker heads at Niketalk are thinking right now. Seriously, this stuff is the equivalent of talking Birds and the Bees to Jamie Lynn Spears or Bristol Palin.
But since most of you are normal folks that don't spend rents money on sneakers or camp out overnight for some kicks , I'm sure this breakdown will do just fine.
So how do we judge which shoe is better than the other? Well there is no one single rule or criteria, rather a combination of style, substance (how the shoe performs, and yes, I've worn all the shoes about to be mentioned), and what exactly the player accomplished while wearing their respective shoes.
So who exactly had the hottest shoes this season?
Here we go, the best signature sneakers worn by the best players in basketball during the 2008-09 regular season.
