Year Introduced: 1996

Michael Johnson's off-track answer to his famous gold spikes, the Zoom JST has been all but forgotten - it's hard to find OG pairs these days, and forget about a retro. The minimalist mesh runner came in any color you wanted as long as it was black, and featured gold accents including Johnson's embroidered signature. Had these been released in 2012 instead of 1996, they would have blown out of the stores and been on many year-end best-of lists. Worth remembering.
