KICKS IN FLIX

This week, as we continue to long for basketball in the wake of social distancing, we’ve been getting our hoops fix through ESPN classic games & classic basketball films. We scoured some of favorite basketball movies for some awesome basketball sneaker cameos. Check them out below and definitely check out our selection of basketball sneakers here!

White Men Cant Jump (1992)

Kadeem Hardison as Junior in the 1993 film “White Men Can’t Jump” in the Air Jordan IV “Black Infrared” from 1991.

Celtic Pride (1996)

Damon Wayans as Lewis Scott for the Utah Jazz in the Jordan 11 Concords from 1995.

Like Mike (2002)

Lil Bow Wow (Calvin Cambridge) just ripped through a pair of Nike Blazers on court with Morris Chestnut donning the Air Jordan 9, originally released in 1993. The Jordan 9 was actually released when Mike went into baseball, so he never actually wore this on court until much later in his career as a member of the Washington Wizards.

Sunset Park (1996)

In this scene, a player from Washington Heights is wearing a pair a Jordan 3 “Black/Cement” on court, very shortly after the shoes first retro release.

Above The Rim (1994)

This is a shot of Shep (Leon Robinson) playing the best game ever seen by a man in khakis. I attribute his success on court to the classic Adidas Pro Model (1970) he’s wearing in the game.

He Got Game (1998)

Hoop Dreams (1994)

Arthur Agee in the Converse ERX 200 (1987). Converse was a major player in the world of basketball sneakers in the 70’s & 80’s and this was a choice amongst the games best hoopers at the time.

Love & Basketball (2000)

Quincy McCall portrayed by Omar Epps is rocking the Storm Blue Air Jordan 1 as a player at Crenshaw Highschool.
