Old School Basketball Footwear
Basketball shoes have come a long way since Chuck Taylors were first produced by Converse in 1917. With the Academy's long history, students here were playing basketball before these ubiquitous sneakers were invented! For most Governor Dummer Basketball teams, footwear showed little advancement for several generations of players. Below is a collection of basketball sneaker photographs. See if you can guess the era of each!
Wow.....that's a lot of sneakers! Have you decided on your guesses? Don't peak until you have.
