It's a pretty random assortment for the Kicks on Cards Weekly Collection, but that doesn't mean that there aren't great shoes to be seen. We start out with a young Mike Bibby in his early days with Jordan Brand in the Air Jordan XIV "Indiglo" colorway. The Indiglos are a fan favorite of the original AJ XIV colorways from 1999 that have never retroed. Who would like to see a return?
Next we flip to the back of Derrick McKey's 93-94 Fleer card to spot him in the Nike Air Ballistic Force. The Ballistic Force is a forgotten shoe from Nike Basketball's FORCE line of the early 90's. The Ballistic Force was a standard big man shoe of its time, sporting a high cut and midfoot strap, along with a visible Air unit in the heel. The Ballistic Force was most notably worn by David Robinson in a special Olympic colorway on the 1992 Dream Team.
Speaking of forgotten shoes, next up is Glenn Robinson in the Reebok Prophet, his signature shoe from 1996. To finish out the collection this week is Alonzo Mourning fist pumping in another big man shoe of the early 90's, the Nike Air Force High. Lastly, a nice looking Nike baseball cleat worn by Rob Deer.
