The 50 Coolest Fictional Sneakerheads

17. Radio Raheem

As Seen In: Do The Right Thing
Notable Sneaker:
Nike Air Revolution 

Can we get a (proper) retro, Nike? Take a close look at Radio Raheem's kicks and you will see the biological father to the Air Jordan III. The sole, Air unit, and plastic lace loops influenced one of the greatest sneakers of all time - the Air Jordan III was initially even called the Air Jordan Revolution. Unfortunately in the film they play a somber role after Raheem starts a fight with Salvatore Fragione over the lack of culture in his pizza parlor. Raheem goes Ron Artest and ends up choked out by 5-0. Sorry for the spoiler alert, but his Nike Air Revs three inches off the ground are the last of his role. Love KO'ed by hate.
