Sneaker free agency is one of the best moments during the NBA season. Though it’s an awkward period where a player is looking to find the right fit with a shoe brand, it inspires creativity. Players opt for rare shoes, eschewing the same current models that everyone else is wearing. Sneaker free agency has led to Gilbert Arenas wearing Dolce & Gabbana shoes. Kobe Bryant spent the 2002-2003 season as a sneaker free agent in various Jordans.
Soon, there will be other players added to the list. Draymond Green and Karl-Anthony Towns have shoe deals expiring soon. John Wall might be joining this list next year when he returns from injury. Here’s a look at what the top sneaker free agents are wearing.
