14. adidas Bank Shot

When: 1991

Who: Christian Laettner 

Christian Laettner was hurting feelings during his run with the Dukies, and he tooled up in the adidas Bank Shot, the first shoe to feature the Torsion system. The two-tone scheme and large branding was major with adidas in the early '90s and the sneakers ran the Torsion stability bar from the heel to forefoot. The underrated model saw a retro release in the spring of 2009.
