As seen on the Finish Line site:

Air Jordans shoes:

The dream team of basketball legend, Michael Jordan, and iconic sneaker designer, Tinker Hatfield, sparked the most prolific signature basketball shoe line: Air Jordans. Initially sold with the Nike swoosh, Jordans began sporting the iconic Jumpman logo and basketball sneaker culture was never the same. From the Air Jordan 1 to the latest Air Jordan XX9, Air Jordan retro sneakers bring back each season, playoff, and championship.

Nike Roshe shoes:

Inspired by Zen simplicity, the original Nike Roshe Run was aptly named after the title of a Zen master, or Roshi. Introduced in 2011 by rookie Nike designer, Dylan Raasch, and Nike Sportswear, the Roshe sneaker bridged the gap between running and casual wear. Rooted in a essential minimalism, this casual shoe sports quarter support, heel support, and some cushioning. Raasch made the outsole resemble garden stepping stones, the insole look like a freshly raked Zen rock garden, and topped with enough versatility to rock with or without socks. As of 2015, the newly named Nike Roshe One is a simple shoe that is not simplistic by any means.

Fan gear:

Whether you cheer for a team in the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, or college/NCAA, you can't start off the season without the proper sports apparel and gear. We've got fans covered from football and basketball in the fall to baseball, soccer, and college basketball in the spring.
