73. Converse Star Tech
Year Released: 1985
Even before the Weapon, Converse was producing high-tech (for the time) leather basketball footwear. And as Dr. J's career was coming to a close, they started moving attention to other players within their stable, which, at the time, was significant. The Star Tech still has yet to receive its proper due Stateside, but there have been some tremendous Japanese re-issues that are well worth seeking out.
