Steve Kerr in the Nike Air Go LWP

Today in Performance Sneaker History: Steve Kerr has Highest 3-Point Percentage in the Nike Air Go LWP

Many NBA fans attribute the '90s era Chicago Bulls success to the tandem of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. However, there were a number of other players who were instrumental in the Bulls' success, such as Dennis Rodman, Toni Kukoc, and Steve Kerr. During Chicago's second three-peat between 1995 and 1998, Steve Kerr was one of the most consistent shooters in the game. His clutch shooting abilities, specifically from three-point range, helped the team capture a number of key games throughout the years.

On April 23, 1995, the regular NBA season wrapped up, which made Steve Kerr's final three-point shooting percentage of .524 the best in a single season. But it doesn't stop there: Kerr also holds the distinction of having the best career percentage of all time at .4540.

Steve Kerr wore a number of classic Nike styles throughout his career, but during this period he was laced in the Nike Air Go LWP. As mentioned in Sneaker Report's 10 Best Nike Zoom Air Basketball Shoes, the Air Go LWP served as the introduction to Nike's Zoom Air cushioning. Known at the time as Tensile Air, the revolutionary cushioning setup is still utilized by Nike for their top performance models.
