It’s been 20 years since KICKS Magazine hit newsstands and with it, we’ve had two decades of great sneaker coverage.

Twenty years is a long time in this day and age so of course we have to give a shout-out to Slam Magazine for sticking it out. At SportsHeist, we understand that standing out in the information age is hard to do but being one of the top magazines for all things hoops in the long run is even tougher.

To celebrate their victory, KICKS put out their own version of 20 for 20, featuring 20 of the dopest covers you can imagine that coincide with the sneakers released that year. Essentially, 20 of the best on court shoes over the last 20 years.

You may agree with their ideas or you may think some were left off the list, but either way, you’ll enjoy flipping through to see what the next page holds.
