2. Wilson Bata "John Wooden"
Who: Magic Johnson
You may not be up on these (if you don't know, ask Bobbito), but when the Bata John Woodens dropped, they were actually ahead of their time. A huge sneaker in Europe, the Bata made its way onto Magic's feet during his two-year stay at MSU and 30 years later he still can speak on them with fond memory.
