10. Airwalk NTS
NTS stood for "Not The Same," and Airwalk meant it. The mid-cut NTS was quite the departure from their wildly successful Prototype line, and not just because it was far lower and slimmer than the overly padded skate classics. The NTS went with monochrome uppers in multiple flavors long before that was cool, and took something of a "less is more" approach when it came to build - at least for the time.
