While winners of NBA games are decided by which team puts the most points on the scoreboard, a concurrent footwear battle is waged inches above the court and ultimately decided by shoes sales.
The Fumble put together their picks for the five most fire shoes of the 2016 NBA Playoffs. Two of the five shoes selected to their list are those being worn by point guards Steph Curry and Kyrie Irving, who are going toe-to-toe in the NBA Finals.
#5 CURRY 2.5 73-9
Coming in at No. 5 is the Curry 2.5, a slightly fancier version of the Curry 2.
#4 LEBRON SOLDIER 10
LeBron James’ Soldier 10 shoe has more velcro straps than the previous iterations.
#3 KYRIE 2
Irving’s Kyrie 2 in white and gold is as clean as it gets.
#2 WESTBROOK’S AJXXX
Russell Westbrook’s feet stood out like traffic cones with his Air Jordan XXX’s in OKC Thunder orange.
#1 KD 9
Topping the list is Kevin Durant’s shoes, the Nike KD 9.
