Your used to the idea of Fly Knit by now but how about a Fly Weight shoe from Spalding? In 2014, people clown the idea of a Spalding basketball shoe but step your shoe knowledge game up and know that Spalding has been in the game since your great great grandfather was ballin’. In 1929 Spalding dropped this “high-tech” basketball shoe at the mid range price of $6.00 (a little over 80 dollars in today’s currency). For the most part it almost looked like a minimalist basketball shoe for the late 20’s hipster. In reality, it was a light weight basketball shoe designed to give the wearer great traction with good support. Take a trip back to the 1920’s above!
