Year: 2008

It's hard to divorce Jason Kidd from the Nike Zoom Flight 5. It was Kidd's signature sneaker that he had worn for a large portion of his career. But he made a surprise move in 2008 and signed with Chinese footwear brand Peak, and ended up winning a championship with the brand on his feet. Everything ended well, though, as Kidd signed back with Nike and wore the brand in his final year, 2012, in the NBA.
