Kicks on Cards: The Weekly Collection
words // Zack Schlemmer
The Kicks on Cards Weekly Collection is back with another five card set of sneaker sightings. This week we see some great stuff, starting with Michael Jordan in the Air Jordan VII "Cardinal" colorway. Next is a card from the same 1993-94 Fleer set with Robert Parish in a rare pair of Champion basketball shoes. Which pair would you rather have...MJ's or The Chief's?
We go ahead a few years to the 2001-02 season to spot Jason Terry in a pair of the original Nike Air Flightposite. The Air Flightposite was designed by Eric Avar to be a more fluid, lighter version of the Foamposite One. One of its key features is the zippered shroud covering the laces, a design cue that was used on the Zoom Flight 98, but perfected on the Flightposite. Still one of the coolest Nike Basketball shoes ever, we see Jason - pre-championship trophy tattoos - with a clean white foam pair.
For the last two cards this week we have Negele Knight in the often overlooked Nike Air Dynamic Flight from 1993 and Grant Long in the first full length Air Max basketball shoe: the Nike Air Max Uptempo from 1995. What's your favorite shoe this week?
