The 80 Greatest Sneakers of the '80s

36. Nike Air Revolution

Year Released: 1988

The basketball counterpart to Tinker Hatfield’s game-changing Air Max runner, the Air Revolution was a fitting name for the first basketball shoe to feature Visible Air. But it didn’t stop there. The Revolution also included speedlacing and a heavily padded ankle collar that closed via a Velcro strap. Both expensive and distinctive, the Air Revolution made as much of an impact in high school halls and suburban malls as it did in the NBA.
