adidas Originals just manufactured one of the all-time great hip-hop tribute sneakers with their deluxe edition Superstar 80s commemorating the 25th anniversary of Run-DMC’s hit single ‘My adidas’, but everybody knows the connections between the rap game and sneakerhead culture were just getting started back in 1986.  Complex.com’s latest listing of significant sneaker happenings takes you back even further than that, when LL Cool J’s debut album Radio depicted Mr. Smith on the back rocking a red Kangol bucket hat along with black tee and jeans to match his bred Air Jordan 1s.  And while you’ll find fashions have cycled through more than once during this quarter-century, one thing that remains unchanged is the sheer number of rappers who absolutely love Tinker Hatfield’s impeccable Air Jordan III.  Click through to get an idea of what’s in store, then head over to Complex to see the list in its entirety.
