The 50 Greatest Sneaker Moments In Movies

14. "Kiss My Converse!"

Movie: The Last Dragon
Sneaker: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star

This film left a generation of kids looking for that glow and kicking their peers in the face on the playground, but beyond the influence, there's a significant spot of product placement amid the silliness. Sho'nuff's threatening order to "Kiss my Converse!" is a classic moment in '80s cinema — quotable brand name greatness. It precedes Willie D's 'Read These Nikes' moment by a few years and even inspired Jadakiss to name an unreleased mixtape after Sho's gruff outburst.
