To close out 2012, Sneaker Report named the Under Armour Spine Bionic as the fourth best basketball sneaker of the year. The Micro G midsole was favored by ballers, as was the innovative foam outsole. Its cut allows it to be a versatile choice on the hardwood, suitable for both guards and forwards. Not only is it worn by NBA stars like Brandon Jennings, but Clippers standout Deandre Jordan will be wearing this special Martin Luther King, Jr. edition for the NBA's celebration on January 21.

Unfortunately, this MLK rendition of the Spine Bionic will not be available to the public, but you can pick up other colorways today from UA for $110.
