Basketball trainers have come a long way since Wilt Chamberlain dominated the league in his Chuck Taylors. 

As technology has advanced, so has the footwear worn by the game's best. No way would a player think of wearing a traditional pair of Converse in this day and age. 

Through the years there have been a number of game-changing shoes; the Nike 'Air Force 1' was revolutionary, as the footwear moved away from the traditional pumps to a thicker, more supporting sole. 

Air Jordan was the catalyst for the hyper-competitive, multi-million dollar market we see today where brands like Nike, Adidas, Jordan and Under Armour are competing to ensure they have the freshest, newest trainer on the market. 

Nike have really embraced the modern technological world in recent years with their self-tying 'Flyease' and 'MAG' shoes that have proven to be a big hit. 

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar Kyrie Irving recently posted a video on his Twitter account that showed him trying on a pair of Nike's trainers and he appeared blown away when the shoes began to tighten around his foot. 

The trainer game has come a long way in a short space of time. It's amazing to think where it could head next.
