#6: Nike x Mr. Cartoon x Livestrong Air Force 1
MAYOR SAYS: "Mr. Cartoon Air Force 1's could never match what the original Cartoon did, but for Nike to come up with the idea and to use this shoe again for the Live Strong pack, was great. The Cartoon Livestrong Air Force was one of the greatest ideas Nike has done in a long time. And it's a really nice shoe. Everybody wants spiderwebs, spiderweb's are sought after, but now they have the spiderwebs available, in a decent amount of distribution. I think it's pretty incredible, and the response is overwhelming."
#5: Nike x Patta Air Max 1 Purple/White
MAYOR SAYS: "Guys at Patta never do anything wrong. The whole pack could be considered for my top 5. My number five could be the whole pack because what they did with these materials, was incredible. To make a shoe just as hot as the classic, as the original, is an amazing feat. And that's what Patta did with this whole pack, but I'm gonna go with the purple ones."
#4: Nike Air Max LeBron 7 "More Than a Game"
MAYOR SAYS: "It's been a very long time since a basketball shoe created the buzz that this shoe created. It's a shoe that you can actually wear with denim, with sweatpants, with everything. Also, it's one of the most technically engineered shoes in a very long time. Full Max Air, incredible. Comfortable, amazingly comfortable."
#3: Air Jordan XI "Space Jam"
MAYOR SAYS: "The reason these didn't get placed higher is because they're going to be so widely available, which is fine. Doesn't make a difference. The Space Jam is one of the most sought after releases, one of the most anticipated releases, since '01. I say I'll wind up with three pairs. Three to four pairs. This is a shoe that I'll triple up on with no hesitation."
#2: Nike x CLOT Air Force 1
MAYOR SAYS: "Fuck the 1World Pack, because they didn't let me do one!!! [laughs] What Nike did with the Air Force 1 1World was great. The people at CLOT came up with the design, and it's been talked about all year. The fact that they used that silk on the upper, a material that's used in Chinese culture was great. Also, the packaging around it, with the candy box and the waxed laces, made it standout. It was just a great release overall, and the fact that you could actually peel the shoe and design what you want to design and have no two shoes alike, was genius. For a sneaker event I went to I burned off the full silk, so I have a pair of these that's the full lasered under layer. It's great."
#1: Air Jordan III "True Blue"
MAYOR SAYS: "Number one is the True Blue III. No need for an explanation. The shortest explanation possible, is that there's no need for an explanation."
