13. Air Jordan 1 Retro "Banned"
Release Date: 2011
Air Jordan 1s, in premium leather, with Nike Air on the tongue. In 2011. The "X" on the heel was a bit much (what would that "X" have been crossing out on an OG pair - it should have been on the ankle collar), but sneakerheads were making plans to cop multiples of these before they even knew where they'd release. As it turned out, they dropped at Nike Factory Stores only, which was either completely stupid or absolutely brilliant. Still hard to tell which.
