Just for Kicks is a 2005 American documentary film about the sneaker phenomena and history. It includes self-confessed "sneakerheads" like Grandmaster Caz, Reverend Run, and Missy Elliott. It tells the story of the Nike Air Force Ones, which are called "Uptowns" in New York, and the beginning of Air Jordans. The documentary also tells the story of how hip-hop pioneers DJ Run, Jam Master Jay, and DMC had everyone wearing Adidas Superstars with their song "My Adidas".

Dennis Harvey of Variety called it "aptly slick and stylish as a TV commercial". Giovanni Fazio of The Japan Times rated it 2/5 stars and wrote that the film is more of an unwitting documentary about mental illness than it is about sneakers. Gil Jawetz of DVD Talk rated it 2.5/5 stars and wrote that the filmmaker's enthusiasm for the subject is not enough to make it compelling.
