Glen Rice in Champion High Tops

Today in Performance Sneaker History: Glen Rice Sets Heat Franchise Record in Champion Brand

Everyone knows that LeBron James can score, but there's one milestone that has eluded him as a member of the Miami Heat. On April 15, 1995, Heat forward Glen Rice shot 20-27 from the field, seven of which were three-pointers, and finished with 56 points against the Orlando Magic. In the eighteen years that have passed since then, no Miami player has been able to top Rice's feat.

Keeping things all the way '90s, Glen Rice was wearing a pair of high-top Champion brand sneakers. You may remember that Champion was also the NBA's official outfitter during much of the 1990s, so these branded sneakers fit right in on the hardwood. Although the brand has waned in prominence, they still offer a wide selection of apparel and gear at great prices. Check out Champion's collection here.
