79. Air Jordan Retro XII "Nubuck"
Original Release: 2003
Sold as part of a pack for $200, the "nubuck" Air Jordan Retro XIIs would have been equally at home on the feet of then-Nugget Carmelo Anthony or Jordan's alma mater, UNC. As the XIIs had only been seen in all leather to that point, the nubuck uppers were a welcome twist on a familiar silhouette.
