When it comes to collecting, game worn memorabilia is some of the most highly sought after stuff. One reason for that is because few things capture a moment in time better. Another reason is the undeniable uniqueness. A pair of game worn sneakers are completely unique to that player, in that moment. Acquiring a piece of history in the form of history in the form of game worn sneakers can be quite the challenge if you don’t know where to look. That’s where places like Steiner Sports come in. To see what we mean, check out the 5 Awesome Game Worn Sneakers below that are available now.
Player: Carmelo Anthony
Sneaker: Jordan Melo 1.5
One of Carmelo Anthony’s first signature shoes returned last season in retro form. This New York Knicks colorway was one of the few that Melo laced up during the 2014-2015 NBA season.
Player: Derek Jeter
Sneaker (Cleat): Jordan Jeter Lux
Derek Jeter’s final season with the New York Yankees last year turned out to be more like a farewell tour for The Captain than an actual baseball season. You can own a piece of that amazing history with these.
Player: Kevin Garnett
Sneaker: Anta KG5
Kevin Garnett’s stay in Brooklyn didn’t turn out to be as long as his time in Boston or Minnesota but it was filled with the memories that we’ve come to love (and hate) about KG. One of those memories is the Anta KG5 sneaker, Kevin Garnett’s latest signature shoe, which is now available in his size 15, in a game worn “BHM” colorway.
Player: Joe Johnson
Sneaker: Jordan XX9 BHM PE
As a long time member of Team Jordan, Joe Johnson always gets unique colorways when it comes to his exclusive sneakers. This Air Jordan XX9 Black History Month colorway from the 2014-2015 NBA season is a perfect example.
Player: Mariano Rivera
Sneaker (Cleat): Nike Cooperstown
As one of baseball’s all time great closers, Mariano Rivera is a legend. But on top of his performances, he also was the last player to wear the number 42, before it was retired to honor Jackie Robinson. These Nike Cooperstown PE cleats from 2013, celebrate Mariano Rivera with his autograph and the words, “Last to wear #42.”
