Top 15 Team USA Olympic Kicks

The best sneakers worn by Kobe, LeBron, Durant and more from London 2012.

All historical comparisons and politics aside, the men and women of Team USA took home gold in London—and did so in style, because there’s nothing like lacing up that patriotic red, white and blue colorway and getting to it on the court. With that in mind, we’ve compiled our picks for the best 15 sneakers we saw from the Americans, from classic silhouettes of the past NBA season to kicks you won’t see on retail shelves for many months. Enjoy!

    Taurasi’s LeBron 7, Kobe’s VII, KD’s IV, and LeBron’s X were my favorites, in that order.

    Quite a few of them wore the HD’11 during this tournament. International teams embraced the new (ugly) Hyperdunks but not the Team USA guys. Bron kept switching up shoes, Iguodala started camp in the new HD’s but hardly wore them after, same for Deron (i think).
    Red flag for me, time to get a few discounted HD’s before they sell out completely.
