The Trash Talking Pros With Keds
Pro Keds shoes arrived on the NBA scene in the early 1950s as a competitor to Converse Chuck Taylor’s. The Pro Keds marketing slogan of the era resembled off-court trash talk: “We challenge any other shoe. Anytime. Anywhere.” While Pro Keds were more associated with fellow Celtics legend Jo Jo White, John Havlicek signed this pair.
