PRO-Keds Men's Royal Lo Classic Canvas Sneaker
Another one of my favs, these PRO-Keds reminds me of my early adulthood.
The story of the birth of PRO-Keds is an interesting one. It was in 1949 that PRO-Keds were introduced by George Mikan also known as "Mr. Basketball and basketball's original "Big Man".
Mikan played in the National Basketball League (NBL), as well as the Basketball Association of America (BAA) and the National Basketball Association (NBA) leagues. He was one of the first athletes to endorse the sneakers.
In the 70s and 8O's, Nate 'Tiny' Archibald, Jo Jo White, Joe Theismann, 'Pistol' Pete Maravich and Johnny Bench also helped popularize the brand.

adidas Originals Men's Superstar Fashion Sneakers
Do you remember these lyrics from the song "My Adidas" by iconic rap group Run-D.M.C.;
We travel on gravel, dirt road or street
I wear my Adidas when I rock the beat
On stage front page every show I go
It's Adidas on my feet high top or low
If you do, then you would know how popular these retro Adidas sneakers are.
If fact, there is some interesting history about the song, Adidas and Run-D.M.C.
The story basically goes something like this: Adidas executives witnessed a moment when Run D.M.C., who were performing the song "My Adidas", urged the audience to hold up their sneakers.
Impressed by the thousands of concert goers holding their sneakers aloft, the executives of Adidas offered Run D.M.C, hip hop's first million-dollar endorsement deal. Of course there's more to the story, but that's the gist of it.
