Nike Legend

The Nike Legend was first released in 1983 and is one of the most legendary basketball sneakers. Nike Legend came in both high-and low-top versions. Its simple design featured a simple white upper with the trademark Nike swoosh. This sneaker was designed for “heavyweight” basketball players, and was worn by Patrick Ewing when he played for the Georgetown Hoyas.

The Nike Legend was a testing ground for many new innovations in sneaker technology. It was one of the first Nike basketball sneakers to feature a colored outsole. Also, it was one of Nike’s first basketball shoes to feature a perforated toe box. The Nike Legend is a legend for sure.
