#6: Converse Pro Leather


Player: Michael Jordan
Year: 1982
Complex Says: Before MJ took over the world with Nike, he was a 6’6” swingman at UNC rocking Converse. The Pro Leathers were a hot sneaker in the early ‘80s, using a stylish cut that was favored by numerous players on the court. In 1982, MJ led the Tar Heels past the Hoyas in the national title game 63–62 by leaping over the competition in his Converse Pro Leathers.
