The NBA Playoffs have looked a bit different the past few years with the recent implementation of the Play-In Tournament, but that hasn’t stopped players from bringing out the heat for the postseason.

This year’s Playoffs kicked off in mid-April with the seventh through tenth seeds in each conference facing off to determine the final seventh and eighth seeds of the season. The 2022 NBA Playoffs didn’t disappoint when they did officially tipoff, as there have been multiple Game 7s, series upsets, and even several big scoring performances from star players.

Throughout the playoffs, we’ve seen players lace up classic styles from yesteryear like Chicago Bulls forward Derrick Jones Jr. wearing the Nike KD 4 “BHM” from 2012. Other noteworthy pairs include Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum lacing up a player-exclusive “Black Mamba” colorway of the Air Jordan 36 along with Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry wearing a custom pair of the Under Armour Curry Flow 9 in honor of the late reporter Craig Sager.

Read on for a complete rundown of the best sneakers in the 2022 NBA Playoffs thus far.
