Most Americans probably recall world class sprinter Michael Johnson’s famous gold shoes. He wore then during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, and they helped him race to two gold medals, 200m and 400m.

What most people probably don’t know is that the shoes started out grey before ending up gold.

Johnson was coined “Tha Man with the Golden Shoes” during the Atlanta Games. The Nike shoes, which were made with Zytel, weighed between 3 and 3.3 ounces.

One of the more interesting facts is that he wore different sizes on his left and right foot, 10.5 and 11, respectively.
