13. Gary Payton

Sneaker Company: Nike

Years: 1998-2003

Gary Payton couldn't keep his lips sealed on the court but his signature sneakers from Nike seemed to always keep things under wraps. The Nike Zoom Flight Glove, Son of Glove, and Zoom GP series were all a part of the Gary Payton signature line with the Seattle Super Sonics, where "The Glove" locked down the opposition with defensive prowess that was only second to his trash-talking abilities. Nike ended the Gary Payton signature line with the 2002 release of the Air Payton IV but GP's inspiration can still be seen in later releases like the Zoom Flight Club.
