Ranking the top 10 NBA players with signature sneakers

Basketball and fashion have long been linked, and never more than the present day.

Not only do several NBA players have the luxury of signing expensive sponsorship deals with sports apparel companies, but the best of the best get to sport a shoe with their name on it. Players like LeBron James and Kobe Bryant have been part of this for years. Other younger stars are just getting their feet wet.

Above, we picked the 10 players with their own signature shoes and ranked them in order of their performance in the most recent sneaker with their namesake. Unfortunately for Kobe Bryant, his games in Kobe 10s haven't been so memorable.

Click through the photos above, check out the links to the sneakers themselves, and tweet us at @AOLSports with the answer to this question: Which player has the best signature shoe in the NBA?
