MD Podiatrist Discusses History of Basketball Shoes

Dan Michaels, DPM discussed various sneakers, including Walt “Clyde” Frazier’s signature line with Puma (a low top) and George “Iceman” Gervin’s Nike shoe “Blazer” (high top) and shoes through the modern day .
 
Dr. Michaels best advice after his deep dive into footwear? “Find a shoe that’s comfortable. The shoes don’t necessarily make you a better player, but they certainly can create irritation and other problems.”
