Every time we name the hottest kicks of the week, we like to keep a good variety. We try to feature stuff from different brands. We try to balance things out. This week, however, the Jordan brand dominated the scene. Check out the best sneakers from Week 4 are and you'll understand.
Let us know what your favorite pair is in the poll below.
A classic. This colorway of the Jordan 14 released the year after Michael Jordan retired from the NBA for the second time. It could have been his most iconic signature silhouette - it would have not only gone down as the last that he wore in-game but also the one he had on when he hit the "Last Shot" over Bryon Russell. But MJ decided to have that regrettable stint with the Washington Wizards. Oh well, the shoe is still nice. Howell wore them in Phoenix's two-point win over the Alaska Aces.
A couple of weeks ago, we featured Mo Tautuaa's customized sneaker. It was an Hyperdunk X Low that was fully modified as a donut. Those are great. Those are art. But sometimes, sneakers only need the littlest iteration to make them the grandest thing. Lee wrote down TOKYO - the name of his recently-born daughter - on the midsole of his Jordan Why Not Zer0.1. The shoe is no longer just what he plays in, it also tells him why he plays and who he plays for.
Only a few people can pull off playing with mismatched shoes every single game. Scan through that list and you'll see Reynel Hugnatan's name. It has become his signature this conference. He has brought out mismatched 11s, this week he went with the 12s. And the pairs he mixes and matches are great on their own already. Pairing odd ones just takes the shoe game to the next level. I wonder how long he'll keep this up.
Until someone proves me wrong, I'll still call Chris Ross the god of sneakers in the PBA. The man has an insane collection. You would usually see him in the Jordan 11s. That seems to be his beaters. But every now and then, he'll come in strong and dust off a big fish from his collection. That's what he did when they faced Blackwater. He brought out these Ferraris. Safe to say, it turned heads.
If you didn't know that volt-colored sneakers are part of Arwind Santos' signature look, you haven't been watching enough PBA. The man probably owns a pair of every Volt pair ever released (we'll try to check). But the recent Jordan release is just perfect for Arwind. There hasn't really been a lot of Volt pairs dropping over the last few years so this is something that Santos' collection has been begging for. Oh and if you didn't know, yes, the Volt sneakers always come with Volt socks, arm sleeves and headband.
