Year: 1982
Sneaker: Converse Pro Leather

By 1982, the Converse Pro Leather, AKA Dr. J, was already firmly entrenched in basketball lore thanks to the good Doctor himself. But a little more legend doesn't hurt. In the 1982 NCAA Final, with the game on the line, a freshman from Brooklyn (by way of Wilmington NC) by the name of Mike Jordan buried a 17-foot baseline jumper that ended Georgetown's championship aspirations-or at least delayed them a few years. It was the biggest shot of his life. Up until then anyway.
