At the beginning of this year’s NBA season, the league lifted their color restriction rule regarding player’s sneakers during a regulation game. So far, many have been making their case to be officially titled the “Sneaker king” of the NBA, but not all have been able to display the swag, drip, and consistency that’s required to wear the crown. We at StockX have been tracking the best of the best to hit the hardwood, and are now excited to share our NBA Sneaker All-Stars.
Taurean Prince is putting the world on notice, and letting everyone know that he isn’t new to the sneaker game. Prince has been applying major pressure to any and every NBA player’s neck this season with the kicks he has busted out. The Atlanta Hawks Forward is proving a solid case by swapping heat with heat all in one NBA game. Don’t sleep on this silent killer.
Allonzo Trier might only be a rookie in the NBA, but he’s a veteran when it comes to his sneaker game. While showing the world that he belongs in the NBA, Trier has also been showing how much Kobe and Kyrie heat he has in his hooping rotation. Keep an eye on this young gun because his shoe game is nothing but on point.
PJ Tucker took the sneaker world by storm last year and is currently the title holder for the player with the best sneakers on court. That’s just a fact. The Houston Rockets Forward has been taking his sneaker game to a whole new level this year after noticing the amount of buzz he was getting during his Iconic 2017-18 NBA Season. PJ is making sure that there’s an even bigger gap between him and his competition this season, rocking nothing but grails, PE’s, and future releases that the rest of us have to spend a lot of coin on.
New Year, New Team, and New heat. Lance Stephenson wanted it to be known that he was coming for PJ Tucker’s sneaker crown this season. The Laker guard and guitar player has been going heavy with Jordan Retros that many NBA players couldn’t rock. Stephenson even went beyond Jordan and brought Kith collabs to shake things up. Keep up with this groovy dancer as he climbs the sneaker collection rankings.
