When Vince Carter first started wearing Nike, he rocked the Shox BB4. Of course he dunked over Frederick Weiss in those BB4′s, but that’s a story for a different time. The first signature shoe for Vince came next: the Nike Shox VC. Zoom Air in the forefoot and Shox technology in the heel seemingly allowed Vince to take off like a rocket and land with minimal impact.

The VC 2 featured Shox technology in the forefoot, usually reserved for either Zoom or Max Air. The zipper over the shoe served to create a tighter fit. I wore these to play ball in, and they were cool, but definitely different. Let’s see if we can find more samples from that VC line.
