Devin Hester has a history with notable cleats (anyone remember his Zoom Huarache 2K4 PE cleats from the Super Bowl XLI touchdown?), but the relative rarity with which Sneaker News covers NFL footwear and gear, the NFL’s all-time leading returner hasn’t managed a single mention. That ended when ‘Anytime’ got into a Twitter battle with teammate Earl Bennett that resulted in an extensive look though Hester’s collection of kicks from that ‘other’ Chicago number 23. Hester’s Air Jordan collection follows a trajectory familiar to many who’ve been collecting over the past decade or so: plenty of IIIs through XIVs with a few hybrids, trainers and Melos sprinkled in. We see an emphasis on Threes and the second three-peat, along with all of this year’s Air Jordan X Retros (plus a couple other familiar favorites) and a single pair of Air Force 1s tossed in for good measure. Check out the entire spread after the jump and let us know where they rank against other athletes’ and similarly well-off folks’ extensive varieties.

Hester you got the 8.5 that huff u bogus no Collection should have that and I'm not going to say anything on the fusions or the teams cuz u all ready been talk about on that
All those kicks and no OG'S or retros with Nike Air on the back? You would imagine someone with stacks like him would have some HEAT like that laying around.
Nice shoes but for him to have all the money he has, you'd think that there would be some "Nike Air" on the backs of some of those Jordans instead of the Jumpman. That's just me though.
ebody sayin he aint got "heat"... last time i checked grey-toes xiii's, bred xiii's, db iv's, bin xiii's, infared pack, yotr viii's is alllll heat.... and that aint all the heat he got...quit hatin.....
Good stash but not impressive. Anybody dats been collectin j's since 2002 or 3, u probably got most of these kicks too... wit da exception of those fusions lol
im not surprised ... hes a millionaire ... give any of us a million dollar deal and our collection would be crazyier!!!
yes he has a lot of money and things like that. his collection is very abundant and is in quantity but he should have OG heat. classic ones. i will not like a collection that features cross trainers and fusions ever. as a sneaker head i just can not do that. devon ur a great player u have some nice kicks man but fusions are unacceptable. nike/jordan help the man!
This is not that impressive. If you're rich and play in the NBA I expect you to have a lot of sneakers. What's sad is I probably have way more and definitely a better selection.
plus he a jordan head not sneakerhead. real sneakerheads cop all sorts of hot shit not just jordans to look cool. some J's are hot, but lets not act like all are the shit. lets be real
hey lets be impressed by a millionaires shoe collection....smh. how bout we show respect to the 9-5 grindin' sneakerheads, im tired of yall showing off rich folk who usually dont pay fa half they shit!!
I just see someone with a lot of money who buy's J's cause it's the cool thing to do. A real Jordan head would not purchase those horrendous teams and fusions. Or store their shoes like that. He can do what he wants. I just dont respect it.
Exactly lol. Plus, a sneakerhead is someone who shows a great passion and knowledge for kicks; you don’t necessarily need a lot of kicks.
III's are the GREATEST thing since the making of the automobile!!! What van or Reebok or puma is even close to the 3 in value of history or meaning in the shoe game??? And Nike made the first 3....lol O-o
