My Top 10 Sneakers Of All Time

Nike Air Max LeBron VII

I know that after reading the title for this post you’re probably thinking to yourself, who’s to decide what are the 10 best sneakers of all-time? Sneakers are sort of like ice cream: There’s no way you cannot love them, but they come in so many different styles and flavors that it’s almost impossible to pick a definitive top 10 best of all time. From the early 90’s the sneaker culture began to evolve very quickly. New models, designs and technology took the market by storm & it repeatedly raised the bar year after year. Although the more modern shoes are incorporated with better technology (Air Max, Flywire, Hyperfuse, Zig Tech, AdiZERO) there are some sneaks that just have too much of a classic value to be ignored on this list.

If you asked what factors influenced my ranking decisions, everything from the design, colorway, performance, popularity, rarity and overall likeness played a role. Growing up watching players like Shaq, Iverson and Jordan hoop in some of these shoes played a major role as well. It’s no coincidence that some of the best shoes from these guys were worn during their best seasons – seeing as that’s what makes them so special. At the end of the day, everyone has their own taste in sneakers, however if you grew up watching/playing basketball and have any sort of collection, your list might look a little like this.
