Who popularized it: Run DMC
When we were influenced: 1983
Run DMC was revolutionary in just about every way thinkable. But their approach to style is one that may have the longest lasting effect. Paying homage to the B-Boys of the '80s and to those in prison with their Adidas tracksuits and laceless Adidas Superstars absolutely blew up and is still seen as one of the most iconic style risks a hip-hop act has ever taken.
