The list of basketball shoes that is sure to upset… Here it is in all it’s glory or lack there of. This is just my opinion of the ugliest basket ball shoes in no particular order.

Converse Wade 1

Converse Wade

Converse Wade I – Dwayne Wade
Converse has not had a signature shoe since the Chuck Taylors. This my friends is not the way to start a new generation of basketball shoes. What was Wade going to do. They signed him to a basketball shoe deal then presented him with a bush league accordion basketball shoe. Do you think it was like Christmas morning when you think your gettin a Wii and it is a box of socks and undies? The blank stare of Wade off into the distance… Damn it! I should have held out for Nike… At least his recent basketball shoes have improved. Still not the hot sellers that an MVP deserves. You can find the Wades on cheap basketball shoes.com

A bold and daring move to incorporate rims and basketball shoes. Sounds like a good idea… right? NO. What a flop. If you have ever put a pair of these on you will know what I am talkin’ bout. Very heavy and akward. The air bag in these basketball shoes is so big it feels like your heel is unstable. With every step you can hear the woosh and the tiny plastic rim spinnin’. Look Ma, my basketball shoes are spinnning.

adidas Gil Zero

Adidas Gil Zero – Gilbert Arenas
Gilbert Arenas first signature basketball shoe that looks more like something for the tennis court. Glad to see adidas totaly ignored the Wizards colors of teal, gold and black. This basketball shoe just got schooled 40 – love. At least adidas put some thought in the the function of the the basketball shoe. It has great traction and is fairly light for big man basketball shoe.

Dada C dubbz – Chris Webber
And the award for the shinniest basketball shoe goes to….. the Dada C dubbz. The plastic garbage bag finish of these shoes is out of sight. Not sure if Dada intended this to be a basketball shoe for the serious athlete. I hope not. Dada released this kick in a ton of color ways, even in home and away versions. Can you imagine that basketball team hustling up and down the court in their purple/yellow shinners…

Nike Air Bakin- Tim Hardaway
Alright, alright… I get designing a basketball shoe that represents the team colors but damn! Hardaway could pick up a shift at McDonalds after a Heat game in these basketball shoes. Overall the Air Bakin was a solid court shoe but just to damn weird. Maybe this basketball shoe is just to far ahead of it’s time.

Jordan 15

Jordan 15

Jordan 15- Michael Jordan
The Jordan 15 was the first Jordan basketball shoe to be released after Jordan left the Bulls. This super techie bootie is so far of the Jordan shoe line it never found a home with fans and basketball shoe collectors. With interwoven textures, vertical lines, horozontal lines and no true Jordan branding the basketball shoe is only built for one man. Batman!

Nike Zoom Flight

Nike Zoom Flight 5 – Jason Kidd
The second signature basketball shoe from Jason Kidd. The “bug eye” still is a mystery. Does it add function? Maybe it has hypnotic powers and puts the other basketball players into a trance. Whatever it is for, it failed. The only thing that drove this basketball shoe is the player behind it.

Adidas Kobe 2 – Kobe Bryant
What the hell were they thinking. Can you imagine how the meeting with Kobe went… “Well… um… Kobe this is the latest and greatest new design on the market, all of the kids will want to wear Japanese micro cars on their feet.” I would love to know what these basketball shoes weigh… It’s like wearing combat tanks on your feet.
