Retro Year in Sports: 1997

Must-Have Sports Apparel

In 1997, Nike dropped the Jordan XIIIs with an "eye" inspired by a panther—if you want to go retro you can get them for $300 on eBay. If Jordan's weren't your style or Jordan wasn't your guy, you could rock the Air Penny IIIs in either the Orlando Magic's home or away colors. Anfernee might not have had the staying power of No. 23 (newsflash: no one has) but these kicks were still tight to lace up on the playground when front pocket Starter pullovers were still king.

Also, the hottest jersey of the moment? Surprise, surprise. MJ stayed winning on and off the court in the '90s.
