Sorry kids, but in the late 80s and 1990s it wasn?t your favorite rappers hoarding up the hottest hoop kicks. Sure, guys like the Fresh Prince and Jay-Z were known to keep a pair of Airs around, but who was really laced? Yup, boy bands. OG Air Jordans, vintage Nike basketball shoes, classic adidas, you name it and they had it. This week?s Celebrity Rewind goes into overdrive as we spot everyone from New Kids on the Block to the Backstreet Boys in the likes of OG Jordan 3s and Foamposites.

Ross also wore these in Friends. Coincidence?
