5. Nike Dynasty

When: 1985

Who: Patrick Ewing

Most people remember the Terminators (we'll get to those), but the Nike Dynasty was the signature shoe of Patrick Ewing and the Georgetown Hoyas throughout most of his college career. The sneaker dropped in 1981 and was one of the first major basketball releases by Nike. The shoe inspired classics like the AF1, Sky Force, and Dunks in the early to mid ’80s and helped lead Ewing to one of the most successful campaigns in college basketball history.
