In every major sport, the star players will always attract the attention of corporate heavyweights looking to align their product with popular and marketable athletes. Footwear is no doubt a common denominator among all the sports and the big name brands have been scrambling to sign the big name players for decades now. Tennis and basketball were the industry pioneers when it came to introducing the concept of the signature shoe, but in the ’80s the spectrum broadened significantly into other sports with football emerging as one of the prime targets for market expansion.

There once was a time when it was just about completely unheard of for independent skate shoe brands like Etnies, DC, and Duffs to be on the same wall as Air Jordans and running shoes, and there was little common ground to justify those two worlds ever crossing paths. There were definitely early basketball models from Nike, adidas, and Puma that caught on with ’80s skaters, but on the retail end, it was still two drastically different worlds.

From Superman, Diesel, and Shaq Fu to the Big Aristotle, Banana, or Baryshnikov, over the course of Shaquille O’Neal’s legendary basketball career, he has gone by more different names than you could ever hope to count. And while it didn’t exactly originate on the basketball court, one of the most fondly-remembered of them all came from Shaq’s role playing the character, Neon Boudreaux, in the 1994 movie, Blue Chips. The film may not have brought home any Oscar hardware for the cast and crew, but as far as b-ball movies are concerned, it has gone on to become a certified classic.

It’s pretty evident that the legacy of ASICS as a brand will be best remembered for their contributions to the running shoe category, but there was once a time when they were a well-respected name in the basketball world as well. In fact, that’s where the company got its start back in 1949 when founder, Kihachiro Onitsuka, began manufacturing basketball sneakers out of his living room. Since then, the brand has branched out and excelled in a number of different sports and footwear categories, but basketball will always remain an important part of their history.

When it comes to sports, perfection is an elusive prize, and whether you achieve it or not, it’s that undying pursuit of perfection that drives players to become truly great. You can make the argument that Kobe Bryant has come as close to mastering the game of basketball as anyone who’s ever played it. Years of hard work, determination, and intense focus have resulted in a legendary on-court run highlighted by five NBA Championships, two Olympic gold medals, and league MVP honors, and despite all that success, Kobe is still as hungry as ever. Although injuries have derailed the better part of the last two seasons, knowing how hard he’s ready and willing to push himself towards greatness, you can never count Kobe out.

The New York Knicks have had their fair share of stars and beloved hometown favorites through the years with names like Willis Reed, Walt Frazier, and Earl Monroe still as revered as ever in the Big Apple, but if you had to choose one player to anoint as the saint of NYC basketball, it’s hard to make a case against Patrick Ewing. In addition to being the all-time franchise leader in almost every statistical category you can think of, Patrick also led the Knicks to 13 consecutive postseason appearances, and although his tenure in the middle of the Madison Square Garden paint never yielded an NBA championship for the city, his hard work and determination carved a legacy that will never be forgotten.

When most people think of action sports as they pertain to the sneakerhead world, it will most likely be skateboarding that first comes to mind, and rightfully so. The mid 2000s SB Dunk craze helped to popularize skateboarding shoes with skaters and non-skaters alike, and in turn, helped other elements of the culture to spill out into the mainstream and become a big money business. Roughly a decade later, skate style has worked its way into the very core of streetwear and hip-hop fashion in a seamless way where the pre-conceived lines that dictate who can wear what have become completely blurred.
