23. Nike Air Max 1 "Sima Shima II"
The speckles on the soles and browns on browns that make up this shoe's makeup didn't cause too much hype when it debuted alongside an excellent matching Air Trainer 1 and okay Dunk at European Foot Lockers. Now, with the AM1 as a hot shoe, what was once salerack fodder becomes something of a rarity. The nubuck textures, mesh tongue and striped lining (a Shima trademark) is drabness executed in a way that elevates it to interesting and best of all, these were the kind of shoes you could punish all year round. Finding a replacement pair 9 years on isn't so easy.
