ESPN’s SportsCenter debuted more than 40 years ago, with the premiere episode airing on September 7, 1979. First anchored by George Grande and Lee Leonard, the show has since launched a number of careers, with broadcasters like Greg Gumbel, Craig Kilborn, Robin Roberts and Keith Olbermann all owning much of their early television success to the prime-time sporting news program.

Still considered to be ESPN’s flagship show, SportsCenter is now inspiring a whole other industry with the launch of a new sneaker collaboration with Adidas. The Adidas Top Ten Hi ESPN Shoes take inspiration from the early days of SportsCenter, with retro colors, a pebbled leather upper and OG hi-top styling. The sneakers’ name is a play on SportsCenter’s popular “Top Ten” segment, which features the best sporting highlights of the night.
