Year Introduced: 2009

The adidas TS Cut Creator sounded like it should have been a Jam Master Jay (RIP) signature model, but it was actually the guard shoe for 2009 - worn by, among others, Gilbert Arenas, Chauncey Billups and Derrick Rose. The familiar Three Stripes were oriented horizontally on the side of the mids, giving them a speedy look. ClimaCool and adiPrene technology handled the ventilation and cushioning respectively.
