Some of the best basketball players have worn some of the coolest sneakers ever made. But just as there are debates about the greatest players of all time, picking the greatest basketball shoes of all time is even more difficult.
So guess what? We’re going to stick our necks out and put together a greatest shoes list. (Critics, get ready.)
The debate began as the list was being made. Is the definition of greatness the way shoes look, the way they feel, or is the signature kicks of our favorite players? It could be all of that and more.
Who in their right mind would do such an evaluation? (We would.)
The rating of these shoes comes from many areas: how they perform, what made them popular, what some experts said about these shoes, along with some of the criteria already mentioned.
Don’t expect perfection. These rankings are far less scientific than the shoes themselves. But it makes for a fun debate, and it could bring back a few memories, too.
