New Balance 670

Year (of Sneaker): 1987

Early in the film we see Arthur sitting in the living room rocking New Balances while watching the 1988 All-Star game being played just blocks away from the Agee home. You can't help but think Mike's role in the Slam Dunk Contest, the game itself, and the Jordan IIIs on TV didn't motivate young'n to be the greatest.
