Air Jordan IX — Penny Hardaway 

We know Penny had one of the greatest signature lines on his own but with Michael in Birmingham shagging fly balls and Nike losing its greatest athlete, it would have only made sense to have one of the heir apparents keep Jordan Brand flourishing. The Penny IX PE bascially came to life this past year (although slightly different, and without the "1" on the heel) and had plenty of sneaker fans hype to grab a pair of one of the least-favorite Jordan models.
