Kicksology: Amar’e Stoudemire

A through-the-years look at STAT’s sneakers.

For many fans, it was hard enough last year to watch Amar’e Stoudemire walk away from the Phoenix Suns and sign with the New York Knicks. Now, STAT may be walking away from another long-term hoops relationship, as he recently said on Twitter that he’s weighing his footwear options, since his deal with Nike is almost up.

“My shoe deal is about up. I wonder who I should sign with. Nike, Reebok, Adidas, Under armour, or build a company up into a power show company”

Wherever Amare’s feet lead him next, we thought now’s as good a time as ever to take a look back at his (sneaker) career and the Nikes he’s worn since coming into the league, way back in 2002.

    Air Force Stat’s are my favorite. Both to look at and play in, in this group.

    Ugh, please stay with Nike. Reeboks are terrible these days.
    His Hyperdunk PEs and ASG Foams were fire.

    Don’t go to Reebok. Going from Nike to Reebok is like going from Cinnamon Toast Crunch to Honey Smacks

    Great look back though. Weird that Amare barely wore the shoes Nike gave him and made PE versions for him in. Seems like they should have asked him for some input as to what he wants to wear instead of just giving him random stuff.

    Oh well. Under Armour would be a good look.
