The Kicks on Cards Collection is back for another set of on-card sneaker sightings.
This week we start with three certified classic Nike Basketball models from the early 1990's. First up is Sedale Threatt in the Nike Air Flight Huarache. We were recently blessed with a re-release of the Air Huarache runner in original colorways and construction (I.E. no Free sole), but many of us are still hoping for a return of this basketball version in its original form as well. Would you agree?
The next two classic Nike basketball models and their colorways are both associated more closely with teammates of the players wearing them on the two cards. Paul Pressey is seen in the Air Command Force, made famous by David Robinson. Then we have Chicago Bulls big man Horace Grant wearing the Air Maestro in a Bulls-home colorway, which is associated with Scottie Pippen. Did the star players hook up their teammates with their kicks?
Our next sneaker makes its Kicks on Cards debut with the AND1 Marbury. Stephon Marbury's first signature shoe is seen here on the feet of fellow point guard Darrell Armstrong. Featuring a large AND1 Man at the heel of each shoe, this is one of AND1's most classic models. We finish up this week's collection with you-know-who in you-know-what-shoe: Michael Jordan in the Air Jordan XI "Concord".
