Jared Cunningham is the sneakerhead-turned-professional basketball player you don’t know about. Having played limited minutes for a multitude of teams, such as the Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers and now overseas, Cunningham has flown under the radar throughout his ever-evolving career. If ever given consistent playing time, one would see how much fun he has with on-court footwear, much like the Nick Youngs and PJ Tuckers of the on-court world.
During the 2016 NBA preseason – while playing with the Cavs – Cunningham thoroughly impressed LeBron James by wearing a unique mix of vintage and new NIKE LeBrons, switching shoes game by game and sometimes at halftime of other games.
“My collection is unlike anyone’s you’ve ever featured because I didn’t grow up on Jordans; I grew up on LeBrons,” Cunningham mentioned to our EIC, George Kiel. “I still have a ton of both, but I cherish my LeBrons more than anything.”
