Year Introduced: 1995

Until Lunar came along, there was simply not a cushier, more comfortable sneaker than the Nike Air Max Uptempo. With its flat sole and full-length Visible Air unit it was equally prepared for on- or off-court use, and with just four "eyelets" it would go from saggy to cinched tight at a moment's notice. The original "Spurs" colorway with Mystic Teal is still a banger.
