Visible Influence: Long Basketball Shorts, Black Socks with Sneakers, Sneaker Culture

In the realm of basketball style, Michael Jordan has done wonders. He started wearing bigger shorts so he could put a pair of UNC shorts underneath, and started wearing black socks with his sneakers on the court too. Speaking of sneakers, it's pretty obvious what his legacy is in that world. Jordan made shoe brands realize the potential of athlete endorsements, until him, tennis stars were the ones with signature shoes. The term "game changer" gets abused in every other blog post these days, but when it comes to Jordan, it rings true.
