Flashback Friday: Olympic 1992 Dream Team

Karl Malone: LA Gear Catapult

Long before APL produced performance enhancing sneakers, Karl Malone rocked the LA Gear Catapult. With its spring loaded 'Power Feedback System', LA Gear actually had been a contender with major brands in the early 90's. Nike even filed suit against the brand which they claimed infringed on their patented 'Spring Moderator' technology. Pretty crazy for a brand who ended up being sold at Pay-less towards the end of its lifespan.
