Kicks on Cards: The Weekly Collection // Featuring Vin Baker in the Air Jordan Vindicate
words // Zack Schlemmer
The best Jordan Brand signature shoe ever? No, it's not any of the Dwyane Wade models. Eddie Jones' Quick 6? Maybe. Our vote actually goes to Vin Baker's (yeah that's correct, Vin Baker's) Air Jordan Jumpman Vindicate. With its bold colorblocking and clean design, The Vindicate from 1999 remains one of the most memorable non-numbered Air Jordan models ever. Check out Vin on this card, working the block in a pair of the white/black pair.
Antoine Walker celebrated a birthday this week, so we made sure to throw him into the collection wearing his signature adidas Real Deal. The Real Deal is back again this year in a number of great new colorways, but nothing beats an OG pair worn by Antoine himself. These make me wanna shimmy!
Two early 90's Nike hoops classics are next. First we spot Reggie Miller in the Air Flight Huarache, then fellow hall of famer and NBA legend John Stockton in the Air Flight Maestro. We finish up with Michael Finley throwing it down in the Air Max 2 Strong Mid. What's your favorite sneaker sighting from this week's Kicks on Cards collection?
