Throughout most of the season, the New York Knicks proved capable of playing with any team in the league. Their roster only improved after making the NBA Playoffs the prior season. Unfortunately, injuries and a few head-scratching lossses derailed what could have been another special year.

The silver lining is the team had a productive offseason and should be back in the hunt next season. But before we close the book on the 2021-22 season, we continue our look back at each team's best hoop shoes of the season. It was not easy, but below are the top ten kicks worn by Knicks player's last season.
