Bango the Buck hasn't been shy about showing off his adidas Yeezy Boosts, but he isn't the first sports mascot to rock heat on the court. Throughout the years, mascots on the pro and collegiate levels have made sneakers part of the gig. While most opt for mascot-sized generic costume models, others have taken things a step further by bringing recognizable silhouettes from popular brands to the hardwood.

Here's the 10 best sneakers that have been worn by NBA and NCAA mascots.
