Kicks on Cards: The Weekly Collection // Featuring Larry Johnson in the Converse AeroJam
words & images // Zack Schlemmer
One of the big stories in the sneaker world this week is the return of the Converse AeroJam, so we definitely had to include Larry Johnson in an original pair for this edition of the Kicks on Cards Collection. Yep, that's right, LJ's classic signature shoe is finally coming back in the original black and teal colorway along with two all-new looks. Let's hope the original white Hornets colorway worn here by Grandmama himself will also be on the way!
Penny Hardaway is next up, seen in his post-Magic days wearing the Nike Air Flight Determination. Jason Kidd is probably the player most remembered for wearing the Flight Determination, but as you can see, his Suns teammate also laced them up.
Two 90's standards from Nike are then spotted with Lamond Murray in the Air Up from 1994 and John Stockton in the Air Flight Maestro from 1996 - both worn by countless NBA players in their respective years of production We close with a rare on-court ASICS sighting from Calbert Cheaney. What's your favorite pair in this week's Kicks on Cards Collection?

âConverse is constantly looking for ways to push the boundaries of street style and weâre thrilled to bring back the Aerojam as a lifestyle sneaker and introduce the new Anarchy style,â says Darin OâBrien, VP, Converse CONS. âWith a 90s influence on a modern sneaker, this collection celebrates street culture in a sport-inspired world.â
"In the midst of a 90s street culture resurgence, the look of this sneaker feels fresh with a lighter and more comfortable modern fabrication..."
