Sole Provider: 30 Years of Nike Basketball

Published in 2002, this book takes you back in sneaker time, recapping over 30 years of Nike Basketball history. In 1972, Nike's basketball sneaker line only had two models, the Bruin and the Blazer, which are still around now. Today, with signature lines such featuring Lebron James and Kobe Bryant, you can find literally hundreds of different Nike basketball shoes. The book is composed in chronological order and makes one appreciate the evolution of basketball footwear over time. I use this as my almanac for any Pre-2002 Nike/Jordan Basketball sneak. Pick up a copy if you wish to learn more about the story behind Nike's role in the creation of the perfect B-ball shoe.
