Da Kid proved to be Da Man, redefining the power forward position and picking up NBA hardware along the way. KG kicked off his career in Nikes, sporting Uptempos, Flightposites and even a few signatures before wearing shoes of his namesake from AND1, adidas and Anta. Despite debuting in the NBA 13 years after the shoe first released, Rasheed Wallace became the face of the Air Force 1 by rocking the highs on the reg everywhere he played.
