This week we kick off the Kicks on Cards Collection with Kevin Garnett in the Nike Air Garnett III.  From 1999, the Garnett III is perhaps the best Nike Basketball shoe to utilize the brand's short-lived Tuned Air technology.  The shoe's blend of sweeping full grain leather and gradient-colored mesh paneling make it one of the more unique and memorable Nike Basketball models from the late 90's. 

We go ten years earlier for our next sneaker sighting: the Nike Air Flight '89 seen here on the feet of Reggie Williams, matching nicely with the classic Denver Nuggets rainbow uniform.  

"Baby Jordan" Harold Miner may have never lived up to his prematurely given nickname during his career, but at least he got to wear some Air Jordans along the way.  Before he got his Air Jordan X PE's you could spot Harold during the 1993-94 season rocking the Air Jordan IX.

We finish this week's collection up with Hersey Hawkins in the forgotten FILA Double Clutch, and Brent Barry in the Nike Air Way Up.  What is your favorite sneaker sighting in this week's collection?
