Grosby released The Black Superman 2, The Billy Ray Bates Special signature shoes

Billy Ray Bates the most dominant import in the 80's and 90's became so popular that Grosby made a special line of sneakers,Grosby back then was the official shoe of the PBA ,the Black Superman was released. When I was a kid I grew up watching Bates make his spectacular moves with his dunk and hang time maneuvers. I always wanted to own a pair of those Grosby sneakers. But never got a chance to have one...

Those sneakers are like the version of Nike's Air Jordan series. Recently Bates was awarded to be in the Hall of Fame in the PBA. Grosby decided to release the Black Superman 2.  Having this opportunity to get one, I went to the nearest Olympic Village stores and got myself those most wanted shoes, Finally , yes finally ! I got the chance to wear one, after years of waiting
