Nike Basketball’s 20 Designs That Changed The Game [PHOTOS]

 

The gang is all here. Nike Basketball went back and featured 20 sneaker designs that changed the game when it comes to hoop shoes. Spanning over 20 years, it kicks off with the Nike Air Force 180 Low in 1992, which Nas happened to be seen rocking while partying with Team USA in London, and ends with this year’s newfangled model, the Nike Hyperdunk+ 2012.

There are some classic favorites in between, including the Nike Air Flight Huarache made popular by the Fab 5, the Nike Air Raid that Tim Hardaway used to rep and of course Penny Hardaway’s Nike Air Foamposite One. It’s no coincidence that plenty, thought not all, of the kicks featured have received the retro treatment. Which shoe is your personal favorite?

Check all of the game changing kicks, along with Nike’s take on their design, in the gallery.

    I tried to get thru this post on my cellphone but the ads on EVERY SINGLE PAGE is quite ridiculous. It took me 10 mins to get to page 5 & I couldn’t take it anymore. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.
