The 25 Greatest Sneaker Years in NBA History

6. 1994-95

Significant Sneakers: Reebok Kamikaze, FILA Grant Hill, Air Jordan X, Air Jordan XI, Nike Air Strong, adidas Mutombo II, Reebok Shaq Attaq IV, Nike Air Up, Nike Air Go LWP, Nike Air Lambaste,

It wasn't until the end of the '94-95 season that the Air Jordan XI showed itself - and the player it appeared on wore 45, not his more familiar 23. But Michael Jordan's newest shoe would go on to change everything. One could almost separate the '95 Playoffs from the '94-95 season, sneaker-wise - and the playoffs alone would be top-10 material, easily. But the regular season birthed some gems as well, including the first Reebok Kamikaze and Grant Hill's first sneaker with FILA. Meanwhile, the big man battle continued off the floor as well as on, with the adidas Mutombo II and the Reebok Shaq Attaq IV.
