Brand: And 1
Significant shoes: And 1 Tai Chi and And 1 Lottery Mid
If you're still in college or high school you might not even remember when And 1 all but ruled the NBA, but for a minute—thanks to Stephon Marbury, Vince Carter, and freelance designer Tuan Le—the little company was making a lot of noise. Who could forget the yin and yang design of the Tai Chi on Vinsanity's feet while he committed premeditated murder on the 2000 NBA Slam Dunk Contest field? And 1's best shoe ever and a certifiable classic.
