9. Nike Zoom Huarache 2K4

When: 2004

Who: Charlie Villanueva 

By 2004, the trend of the Shox started to slow down and Nike rolled out its new lightweight performance killer with the Huarache 2K4. Best known on the feet of Kobe after he made the jump to The Swoosh, the 2K4 was perfect for players like Villanueva who was notorious for using his speed to beat defenders on the wing but also banged down low under the boards.
