Nike Air Trainer III

Year (of Sneaker): 1988

The flick kicks off with our boy Mookie (Spike Lee) bouncing out of his sister Jade's (Spike's sister in real life too) crib to head over to Sal's Famous Pizzeria slangin' pies. When he's walking down the block interacting with numerous neighborhood staples we catch a glimpse of Mook in his "Medicine Ball" Nike Air Trainer IIIs. The kicks also take us through some of the film's other pivotal moments, including the scene where he gets the garbage can to kick-off the riot for Radio Raheem and his face-off with the bossman to end the movie. Damn Spike, no one shoe should have all that power.
