The NBA tunnel has been turned into a runway for players in recent years—more so than even before. Not only are superstars making sure they play well each night on the court, but they are making sure they are arriving to the arena looking good too. Of course, that means that the rare and limited pairs of sneakers aren't just being laced up on the hardwood anymore.
A look down the tunnel at any arena around the league on any given night during the season is guaranteed to provide a look at some great shoes. Popular Nike collaborations like the Travis Scott x Air Jordan I or Sacai x Nike LDWaffle are a given, but those aren't the only pairs you can expect to see. Sometimes its a friends and family colorway you wish you could own, or an obscure throwback that you don't see everyday. PJ Tucker and LeBron James both frequently populate the list, but tons of other players come prepared with their tunnel footwear too. This week, Darius Bazley laced up one of the biggest New Balance collabs of the year, Naz Reid pulled out a rarely seen Air Jordan III from 2007, and Jeff Teague joined in on the SB Dunk resurgence with the "Green Lobster" colorway from Concepts.
Take a look at our picks for 10 of the best sneakers that walked through the NBA tunnels this past week below.
