Here's what I've got so far. I would love to put a date on the NFHS ban.

Karl Malone (Louisiana Tech 1982-1985, NBA 1985-2004), and Hakeem Olajuwon (Houston 1981-1984, NBA 1984-2002), both endorsed LA Gear basketball shoes. In 1993, they both wore LA Gear shoes with flashing lights in NBA games, and the NBA, and later the NFHS, banned shoes with flashing lights.
