SLAM Kicks

Basketball shoes have a long and storied history both on and off the court. For one thing, they represented one of the first types of shoes that were researched and tweaked for the specific needs of consumers; but they have since risen to a real pop cultural art form.

SLAM Kicks chronicles the path of the basketball sneaker, from the birth of the very first iconic basketball shoe, the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars, to the white-hot best-selling Nike Air Jordan sneaker line. It showcases the hottest basketball shoes over time, covering each iconic sneaker and its design, the technical advancements found in the shoe, the athletes who made the shoe famous, and the cultural impact the shoe has had off the basketball court. Featured sneakers include: the Converse Chuck Taylor, the Adidas Jabar, the Puma Clyde, the Nike Air Force One, the Air Jordan, the Reebok The Question, and many others. SLAM Kicks is the perfect gift for basketball and street fashion enthusiasts alike.
