Basketball season is coming to a close, and while we already took a look back at this year's greatest on-court kicks, we thought it was time to really go in and take a look at basketball sneaker history. We hit up our friends Peter Sim and George Kiel over at Nicekicks.com to help us curate a list of the 50 Greatest Basketball Sneakers of All Time. The list is based on performance, style, and each shoe's overall effect on sneaker culture. You'll see on-court sneakers of the past and present, classic silhouettes, and recent tech-friendly models that have been game-changers. What ranks #1? You'll have to click through for that.
