It’s time to talk, sneakers. As the NBA season is at its close, there is truly no better time than for us to highlight the kicks that dominated the court over the past season. 

If you are anywhere close to a sneakerhead, you know that basketball season is prime time for all things athlete-related. From partnerships to ranking in the most shots per game, these players know how to use the court to their full advantage. 

As we scrimmage through the legendary plays by some of the most elite players of the game, it is hard for us sneakerheads to keep our eyes off Devin Booker’s custom purple Kobe 6 Protros and Jayson Tatum’s Air Jordan XXXVI’s. The majority of these sneakers are limited edition, player exclusive (PE), or custom-made. That said, it is only in our best interest as sneakerheads to get a bit of background on who, what and why these 8 elite players are rocking the coolest kicks ever to hit the hardwood floor.

1. Devin Booker

Devin Booker's kicks were a hot topic of the Finals, as he donned the model for the entirety of the playoffs and Finals. 

Let’s just say that these shoes were complete standouts from the moment he walked on the court. They are purple Kobe 6 Protros that have “Be Legendary” written on them. Unfortunately, they are not for sale since they are Player Exclusive (PE). You can purchase the Nike Kobe 6's in other color-ways—available on resale websites, including Goat, StockX, and more.

Take a look at the Nike Kyrie 7 "Weatherman." These kicks are a red, green, and yellow colorway featuring a heat map design on the sneaker's heel. The sneaker pays homage to his teammate on the Brooklyn Nets, Kevin Durant, who in 2011 launched the Nike KD 4 "Weatherman" inspired by his dream of becoming a weatherman before his entrance to the NBA. Irving's sneakers are for sale on Nike for a retail price of $130. The recently released shoe is the 7th shoe of Irving's collection.

Peep Giannis Antetokounmpo’s kicks as he is rocked the newest colorway of the Nike Zoom Freak 2, a continuation of Nike’s ‘Play to the Future’ series—Nike’s commitment to the generations to follow. 

Word on the street, this two-tone color-way is superior in the sneakerhead world due to its extreme detail. The purple and neon green mix highlights the camouflage pattern, exaggerated logo and shades of sapphire and light smoke color. In total, all of these kicks' factors make up the perfect recipe for a dominant sneaker.
