Five shoes that will dominate the NBA this season
NBA training camps start in less than two weeks. Players, fans and members of the media can’t wait to see what’s in store for the 2022-23 NBA season. As always, there will be plenty of drama and action on the pitch.
But we’re also excited for some upcoming sneaker releases that will have a huge impact on the upcoming season. Below are five never-before-seen basketball shoes that we guarantee will take the basketball world by storm after they drop.
Adidas Trae Youth 2
Trae Young’s first signature shoe had an incredible run. The Atlanta Hawks point guard wore over 25 different colorways of the Adidas Trae Young 1. We hate to see it go, but we’re excited to see what the future of Young’s signature line holds.
While we expect the Adidas Trae Young 2 to release this fall, we still don’t have an official release date. In fact, Adidas has yet to provide official images, technical specs, or pricing.
Adidas Harden Vol. seven
It’s hard to believe that James Harden is already on his 7th signature shoe with Adidas. Seems like just yesterday when Adidas arrived at their home in Houston (a lot has changed) with a truck full of kicks for the dynamic guard.
The Philadelphia 76ers guard has previously launched the Adidas Harden Vol. 7 and gifted a unique pair to rapper Lil Baby. Like Trae Young, we still don’t have official information from Adidas on Harden’s new kicks. But judging by the photos we’ve seen of Harden wearing never-before-seen shoes, it’s going to be another adidas classic.
Curry stream 10
The Curry Flow 9 was the first of Stephen Curry’s signature shoes to be released under his own brand, rather than Under Armour. Last month, the Golden State Warriors guard launched the Curry Flow 10.

Curry Brand has yet to provide fans with any official information on the Curry Flow 10. However, it’s safe to assume that the performance model will feature Under Armor’s Flow technology.
Nike Kyrie 8
Last month, Kyrie Irving released his ninth signature sneaker with Nike. According to Irving, it will be called the Kyrie 8 (because, of course). Additionally, Irving hinted that the release date would be November 11, 2022.
However, Nike has yet to confirm any of this information. What we do know is that Irving’s contract with Nike ends after next season, and the company seems eager to move on. In fact, they’re already working on Ja Morant’s first signature shoe.
Nike LeBron 20
Without a doubt, the unreleased sneaker we’re most excited about is the Nike LeBron 20. LeBron James and his two sons wore different colorways throughout the summer.
Yes, it is true that some lucky fans have already purchased the hoop shoe long before its release date. But the official launch of the LeBron 20 is expected to take place in October 2022. Judging by all the photos and videos we’ve seen, this could be the best LeBron model in many years.
