We often associate the most popular sneakers in the Air Jordan legacy with MJ’s greatest games in the most important moments. The ‘Last Shot’, for example, is the Air Jordan XIV that he wore when sinking that 18-foot jumper to close out Game 6, the Zoom Kobe 1 is what Kobe rocked during his 81-point bonanza, and the LeBron 9 Elite is what ‘Bron donned during his first NBA Title run. We don’t really pay attention to the on-feet stylings of the NFL, but with the 2012 NFL season came to an official close as Superbowl XLVII ended with Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco taking home MVP honors, we might as well look back at all the cleats worn by every single Superbowl MVP – from Bart Starr’s win in the first ever game to Eli Manning’s triumphant comeback in XLVI. Not only will you find some interesting gems, but the sheer diversity of brands (particularly from the pre-2000s era) sheds some more like on the time when Nike wasn’t the only game in town. Check out some of the notable stars below and see the list in its entirety from Sneaker Report.

Big Blue was red hot on Media Day, as a number of the Giants players talked to reporters and fans while wearing some neck-breaking heat. We’ll start off with the Wide Receivers: Hakeem Nicks wore Concords, sure-handed Mario Manningham broke necks with the Air Jordan V ‘Raging Bull’, and reserves Ramses Barden and Jerrel Jernigan showed off their Chicago X and Playoff XIII, respectively. On the defensive side, Antrel Rolle contributed with Spiz’ikes, Corey Webster rocked the LeBron 8 V/2 Low ‘Wolf Grey’, while Linebacker Michael Boley kept it comfy with some Viz Air 11s. Kicker Lawrence Tynes threw around the football a bit wearing the Nike Trainer 1.3 Mid, and during other workouts and warmups, Ahmad Bradshaw was seen wearing the Air Max Barkley in White/Red/Blue while Will Blackmon channeled his inner Deion Sanders with the Air Diamond Turf. We’ll even throw an Eli Manning mention in here, who wore some Reebok Zigs. We’ve got a nice recap of the New York Giants at Super Bowl XLVI Media Day so check ‘em out and let us know which Giant had the best kicks! via Yahoo!
