Grant Hill’s Greatest Sneaker Moments
Complex.com’s latest compendium contains twenty-two entries for number thirty-three, but only the worst of luck kept it from being some other, much larger multiple of eleven. The sheer fact that Grant Hill is still active in the NBA in 2011 seems shocking when you consider how many problems the 39-year old forward has endured to his ankles. Much like Penny Hardaway, Hill filled the void during Michael Jordan’s first retirement and seemed poised for a Hall of Fame career until the injury bug relegated him to role player status. And though Hill’s footwear legacy isn’t as rich as the Nike Air Penny series and its offspring, he did help resurrect Fila in the mid ’90s with a couple memorable signatures. He’s back to the same brand he wore as a Duke Blue Devil now in models like the Nike Hyperize, and you can see a fairly complete history of his sneaker stylings on the full list at Complex.
