27. The Golden Boy
Just Usain Bolt after him, sprinter Michael Johnson started the gold shoe trend in 1996 at the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. He donned custom-made gold Nike kicks for the event. He struck gold in more ways than one that year. Perhaps there’s something to dressing for the part. Dressing for success, even.
Johnson harnessed something that we haven’t collectively tapped into yet as humans. Wear your future. It’s a way of actualizing your vision. Making in materialize with a little material push. Eric Heiden did it in 1980, and he broke a world record. Go for the gold, figuratively and literally, folks!
