Year Introduced: 1998

Many shoes have been inspired by cars, not many as literally as the Air Flight 98 AKA "The Glove." Taking Gary Payton's nickname as a starting point, designer Eric Avar created a high-tech chassis that was concealed beneath a sleek skin. GP received several more signature shoes over the years, but when he made his last stop with the Heat, he did it in the Gloves.
