63. Spot-Bilt X-Press
Year Released: 1986
An American company known primarily for their cleated shoes, Spot-Bilt had been producing basketball shoes for some time before making a splash with the X-Press. Worn in the NBA by Sonics tough guy Xavier McDaniel, the plastic-encased X-Press was almost as tough as X himself. The fact that it was available in a wide array of colors didn't hurt, either.
