These days, almost everyone in the NBA is a sneakerhead, and it has only increased now that there are no color restrictions on the shoes anymore. The court is the perfect place for the players to express themselves, but some players just go a bit further than others.

No doubt, Tucker is the first player that comes to mind if you had to choose a sneaker King. Though he has a sneaker deal with Nike, Tucker can either wear Nike’s or Jordan’s and also isn’t limited to his own player exclusives. Last week, something special happened when Tucker got his very first PE’s, the Hyperdunk x Low’s, in red and black with his own logo on them.

Harrell is coming for Tucker’s title as biggest sneakerhead this year. He has a huge on court and off-court shoe collection, and doesn’t just go for every shoe, but tries to find the original version, even if there has been released a newer version. His shoe game is so advanced, that he even brings two pair to every game. One for the first half, and one for the second. Harrell has even said he has 200 pairs of customized shoes he can and will wear during this season.

Fox started the season of right when he was one of the nine players that created his own PE Nike shoes for the opening week. Since them, he ahs worn some great kicks, and as you can see below, he definitely prefers a certain kind of shoe.

Dinwiddie will wear 82 different colorways of his K8IROS kicks this season, all to put his foundation, the Dinwiddie Family Foundation, in the spotlight. After each game, his worn shoes are auctioned off, and all proceeds go to funding college scholarships. So far, his customized shoes included homages to Harriet Tubman, Creed, Nelson Mandela, Penny Hardaway, Rosa Parks, the Media, Child’s Play, Allen Iverson, Stan Lee, and many more.

Irving and James have a big advantage over the other players, as they both have huge shoe deals and their shoe line is well liked by a lot of players. It doesn’t matter what colorways is released, a player in the NBA will wear it. Kyrie even went as far as telling Nike to give Sue Bird of the Seattle Storm every shoe she wanted, after he saw her wearing them in several games.

But, of course, both Irving and James love to wear different colorways of their shoes themselves, and every game they manage to surprise the fans.
