The Biggest Surprises in Sneaker History

Michael Jordan wears Penny's shoes.

Year: 1995
Sneaker: Nike Air Flight One

Michael Jordan not wearing Air Jordans? It happens. In fact, in one of the most unforgettable sneakerhead moments, it happened in the 1995 Eastern Conference Finals. MJ laced up a pair of Penny Hardaway's Nike Air Flight Ones after wearing the Air Jordan XI in Game 1. Few will ever know the actual truth behind the switch but it's safe to say Hardaway probably gets some joy out of knowing MJ wore only one other player's signature model and it was Penny's.
