20. Reebok Pump Blacktop Battlegrounds
Year released: 1991
As soon as you seen the orange pump on the tongue you can't front — these are still a must-have in any true basketball sneaker collection. The classic high-top cut (not like the mid-highs out now) the shoe offered maximum support to the ankle, stability to the midfoot, and although not the lighest sneaker, players had no problem getting up for a putback dunk. We mean Sinbad rocked them, isnt that testament enough? No? One of the first outdoor-specific basketball shoes, the Blacktop series was built tough for the streets.
