Growing up, Saturday mornings were nothing without a mixing bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and 30 minutes of  Saved By The Bell. Even as we got older and too cool for that bubble-gum pop culture TV we still snuck in a few episodes on TBS before and after school. Zack taught us as much about spitting game as our big brothers, and Kelly and Lisa were straight banging — it took Jessie a few years and an R-rated movie before she was on the radar. As much as Zack was a conniving punk scheming on his latest A, money, or one-episode jumpoff, he and the rest of his friends were a cultural icon which meant their fashion choices took over quick. We decided to go to the game tape and break down the sneakers that flooded Bayside and were on the feet of our favorite characters during the run of one of the greatest sitcoms of all time. In honor of the show's 35th anniversary, here's a complete sneaker guide to Saved By The Bell.
