While the whole "Backcourt 2000" thing didn't quite work out with Penny and he tried that whole blonde hair thing, Jason Kidd's time in Phoenix was still seen as a success as he quickly became one of the league's very best point guards.
As he led the Suns to the playoffs every season during his five-year stretch in the valley, he rocked a range of great late 90's sneakers from Nike, like his signature Zoom Flight 5, the Flightposite 1, Flight Determination, Afterburner Flight and Max Uptempo 3.
To celebrate his run in Phoenix, Nike Sportswear just dropped a full "Career Pack" on the sneaker he wore that everyone remembers most, the Zoom Flight 95.
The Suns version below features a purple nubuck upper and the 95's iconic carbon weave pattern along the upper and midsole pods. Through the translucent outsole, you'll notice JKidd's logo on the forefoot, and his Phoenix jersey number atop the tongue.
The "Phoenix" Zoom Flight 95 of the Jason Kidd Career Pack is vailable now on Nike.com
