Throughout the first of three consecutive meetings, starting with the 2015 NBA Finals, several signature shoes from brands including Nike, Under Armour and Anta hit the hardwood. Warriors star guard Stephen Curry has worn several looks from his Under Armour franchise, and Anta’s looks for Klay Thompson of Golden State have also made appearances. Nike, though, has the highest profile with signature sneakers from LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving appearing on the court.
