The 2012-2013 NBA season will be remembered as one of the best when it comes to Kicks On Court. There was obviously a lot of attention payed to detail in regard to the specific shoes that hit the hardwood this season. Why was this such an incredible season? Here are 10 things we learned concerning Kicks On Court this season.

Customs Are Here to Stay

“You’ll see even more customs on court next season. A lot of players are wanting to stand out more and more. You should hear some of the conversations I have with these guys in regards to performing in customs. It’s great.” – Mache

Custom sneakers are not reserved to off-court wear and/or their creator’s Instagram accounts. These 1-of-1s spilled over onto the hardwood in March when Iman Shumpert rocked his Sole Swap custom adidas Real Deals (he wore three more customs after that) and Dwyane Wade laced up a pair of Mache-designed Way of Wades. Yet, customs really took a life of their own on Day 1 of the NBA Playoffs when Nate Robinson, Danny Green, Malcolm Thomas and others all wore never-before-seen creations on court. Look for customs to play a big part in the 2013-2014 NBA season. Individuality plays a big role in the Kicks On Court Champion voting.
