Times have changed.
With the technology and style of basketball sneakers continuing to elevate with each passing year, it gets more and more complicated to compare the shoes of this decade to past silhouettes. Much like when people try to compare a player of this generation to a player of the 90s, it’s difficult – different times, different competition and different rules.
Yet, there are some instances in which the comparisons, sneaker-wise, are in fact clear, apparent and in some cases surprising. Today, we compare some of the basketball sneaker stars of today and yesteryear.
The Most Celebrated Signature Line
There’s no denying the fact that Michael Jordan’s signature shoe line changed the entire sneaker industry for the better. It was easily the most popular shoe brand of the 90s, let alone of all time. In today’s game, LeBron James holds that title. The King James line is undeniably the most prominent and favorable signature series in the game today.
