The first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs wrapped up last weekend, and the two-week-long series of games was not short on storylines. The Los Angeles Lakers were swept ingloriously from contention, Bulls star Derrick Rose still wasn't on the court and Golden State's Stephen Curry arrived as a bona fide star.

Though some a couple of the series were snoozers (*cough* Milwaukee-Miami *cough*), an NBA fan could gaze in wonder at the eye-popping shoes worn on the court during even the most lopsided of match-ups. The hardwood was packed with glitzy kicks, many making their NBA debut, others being brought back out of the closet to remind the masses of their timeless freshness. Here are the 10 best looks that big-time ballers rocked during round one in 2013.
