The Kicks on Cards Collection is back for another set of classic cards with classic players wearing classic kicks. We start off the set with Reggie Miller in the first Air Jordan 11 "Concord" Retro from back in 2000. Reggie wore a number of excellent Air Jordan models late in his career, including Air Jordan XIV and XV PE's, but it doesn't get much better than this!
We go next to one of Reggie's former Indiana Pacers teammates also named Reggie, as we spot Reggie Williams in the Reebok Icepick—an awesome, yet forgotten Reebok hoops model. If anybody from Reebok Classic is reading this, please bring 'em back! A 90's rival of Reggie's Pacers teams is spotted on the third card, with Derek Harper of the New York Knicks sporting the Nike Air Swift in its awesome black and royal blue colorway.
We get a two-for-one sighting of the Nike Air Max Strong next thanks to both Scott Skiles and Eric Montross. The Air Max Strong from 1994 was a versatile shoe worn by countless pros from the point guard to center position (nicely demonstrated here by both a point guard and a center wearing them).
Closing out this week's collection is Kevin Garnett in perhaps his most popular signature shoe, the Nike Air Garnett III. Which is your favorite sneaker sighting in this set of Kicks on Cards?
