Don't You Wish You Still Had 'Em?
(Boulder-CO) Today's offering is the Converse Grandmama which was designed for Larry "Grandmama" Johnson. Converse was struggling to keep up with the other shoe giants at this point in sneaker history, so they decided to counter punch the Nike Air sole and the Reebok Pump with its React Juice. The two NBA players to endorse React Juice were Kevin Johnson and Larry Johnson and this was Larry's first signature shoe. The advertising campaign for these shoes featured Larry Johnson dressed up like a grandmother as he dunked, boxed-out, and abused his opposition while wearing a pearl necklace and glasses. Awww, the good ol' days.
Check out that mystery juice in the transparent heel!
