Sneaker Street Style: What Basketball Fans Are Wearing In Brooklyn

Last month, Under Armour hosted some of the country’s best basketball players for its annual Elite 24 showcase in Brooklyn, N.Y. For the fans, it was a chance to see some great hoops — and some great kicks.

The athletes on the court were, predictably, outfitted in the latest Under Armour gear, but in the crowd, sneaker lovers brought their A-game with a mix of styles, including casual New Balance and Vans retros and game-ready UAs, Nikes and Jordans.

Quite a few Swoosh sneakers were spotted in the crowd, including some of its signature athlete looks. One standout was this pair of Nike Kobe 10 Elite high-tops with a red-and-navy Flyknit upper.

And Under Armour had his own strong following at the event.

The Curry 2 from marquee partner Stephen Curry was a popular look, as were the brand’s Speedform running shoes and its original Clutchfit Drive basketball sneakers in an eye-catching red and white with coordinating socks.

But No. 23 got plenty of love, too, from hoops fans, who donned Jordans of every stripe. Among the highlights were a pair of Air Jordan 12 Retros in red and white, Air Jordan 9 Low laceups in Carolina blue and some classic Air Jordan 5s.

The real star, though, was a pair of the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 collab sneakers in a camo print. The seriously covetable kicks, which dropped last October, remain a hot item on the resale market: Flightclub.com has a pair of size 10s going for $500.
