John Havlicek All Stars
Date: 1960s to 1970s
These Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes saw plenty of use on the court. Debuting in the early 1920s, All Stars gained popularity after Converse outfitted the United States men’s basketball team, which won gold at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany. Chuck Taylor All Stars became the shoe of choice for decades for professional basketball players like John Havlicek, who signed this pair.
