Sneakers: Converse Cons ERX 250
Year: 1989

Remember when J.R. Reid was the next big thing? Nope, we don't either. But he was the truth in '89, when as a junior he earned the ACC tourney MVP, helping the Heels defeat the hated Blue Devils in the final. Even his Cons looked like the future, especially in comparison with Danny Ferry's decidedly archaic adidas Forums.
