Nike Air Force III

Year: 1989

Player: Glen Rice

Complex says: One of the greatest shooters in the NBA and an alleged victim recipient of a Sarah Palin one-night stand, Glen Rice wasn't always known for his sneaker selection (he wore Warner Bros., Champion, and Nauticas). In '89 he broke out the Nike Air Force IIIs, a shoe more catered towards big men but kept Rice from ever rolling that ankle (as did those massive ankle braces).
