The 20 best sneakers in movies

If there was ever a scene that cemented our love for the humble trainer, it's when Marty McFly puts on the 'power-lacing' Nike Airs.

While that was no doubt a great moment for canvas and rubber, we've been feeling for sometime now that other sneakers have been overlooked. But no more we say, today's the day when other trainers get their chance to shine. Behold, 20 of the greatest ever to appear on film.
