Cause when my back's against the wall, I REACT...

Last week I went back to a dig spot that I found years ago to see if they still had anything good leftover. I found a bunch of Starter snapbacks but they had too much storage damage so I passed on them along with some vintage Nike's in small sizes with no boxes. However I did manage to find 5 pairs of deadstock vintage Cons React's hidden in the back room. The Johnson & Johnson's as you could say were some of my favorite sneakers growing up and they still rank high on my all time sneaker list. The Aero Jam's were Larry Johnson's signature shoe and originally released in two Hornets colorways. white and black (shown above) with teal accents. The main feature of the sneaker was a removable lace cover and the almighty React juice! Then there were the Kevin Johnson's that were introduced in 1993 as the Run N' Gun but some critics objected to the shoe's name as "too violent" and Converse changed the name Run N' Slam. The sneaker featured the patented React juice which was a combination of gas & gel built into the heel to absorb shock and provide additional maneuvering control. The Run N' Slam's were sleeker and lighter than the Aero Jam's but not nearly as popular. I'm a little salty that none of them are my size but.....these are the breaks!!!
