Ohio Wingfoots - 1914 - Heather Grey
Akron, Ohio - 1914
The Akron Wingfoots are one of the oldest basketball teams in the United States. They were founded in 1914 by the workers at the Goodyear Tire Company in Akron, Ohio. The teams, while giving workers recreation, also helped to promote one of the first canvas/rubber based shoes made specifically for athletics, the wingfoot.
