20 Ways The Sneaker Game Was Different 20 Years Ago

Most Sneakers Came In Five or Six Colors Max

Imagine if Nike had done shoes for Michael Jordan back then the way they do shoes for LeBron now. There would have been 27 colorways of the Air Jordan VII, in everything from UNC to Laney High to Chicago Zephyrs colors. And this list may have been a lot different. These days LeBron gets as many colorways in a week as Mike did in an entire season. It's just not how it was done then. (Although newer brands like Ewing Athletics were catching on.)
