67. adidas Centennial
Year Released: 1985
It's hard to establish what the adidas Centennial represented a century of â€” basketball was first played in 1891, Adi Dassler was born in 1900, and adidas was founded in 1949. No matter, the Centennial, made infamous by Duke's Johnny Dawkins, was one of the best basketball shoes of the mid-'80s. That's enough for us.
