8. Air Jordan VIII PE

Year: 2003

Strange that an athlete in his prime like Kobe was in 2003 would take on the Air Jordan VIII, that bulky sneaker that even had Mike suffering from foot issues 10 years previous. Then again, this was Kobe at his stubborn best—he'd have played in Doc Martens and still dropped 40. Plus, the Laker makeups just looked so good.
