Sneakers and sneaker culture has certainly reached the height of its popularity in 2013. Athletes, rappers, and pop-culture figures all have received a variety of their own signature sneakers. Its very common for basketball players to have their own signature sneaker, however its usually a different story for other athletes (yes there are several exceptions like Bo Jackson & Derek Jeter). But what about a guy Roberto Clemente? Well Rare Vintage Wear dug up a few old images of a vintage sneaker endorsed by the legendary Pittsburgh Pirates right-fielder.

In the early 70’s, Roberto Clemente actually endorsed Super Pro Sneakers; a brand exclusively sold in his native Puerto Rico. Clemente was way ahead of his time! Check out the sneakers and let us know what you think.
