14. Reebok Pump

Year created: 1989 

In the late 80s Reebok spent a butt-load of cash (in comparison to other shoes) to create one of the most iconic basketball sneakers to date. The logo was a simple use of the technology that made the shoe famous, the same orange basketball that Dee Brown famously pumped-up before earning all tens with his no-look dunk. The Pump quickly became a status symbol on the streets and even had Nike playing catch-up for once.
