Record Breakers and Their Shoes
Athletes know that after years and years of work towards a goal, the last thing you want is your gear getting in the way of completing it. To set the stage for an incredible performance, everything must be perfect. Humans have been able to make leaps and bounds in athletics, and old records are constantly being broken to be replaced by new, shocking feats. Since Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile in 1954, his record has been broken nearly 20 times. Since Steffi Graff won the first Golden Grand Slam, three others have followed in her footsteps. And amidst all of this, the most incredible athletes have broken countless barriers in athletics ranging from 40 yard sprints to marathons, and everything in between. Below, find some of the most awe-inspiring athletes of all time, complete with the shoes they wore to carry out their most incredible accomplishments.
While you might not be running a 4-minute mile or playing in the NBA, a great pair of sneakers or a well-fitting pair of basketball shoes may just help you get your first foot out the door or onto the court. Though the most iconic pairs are highlighted above, everyone has their own preference in what fits them best and helps them achieve their goals, no matter if those goals are world records or personal bests.
