#9: Nike Air Flight Huarache


Player: Chris Webber
Year: 1992
Complex Says: After 1992, college basketball was never the same. Five kids from Michigan got together and decided they were going to rock baggy shorts, play with some major swag, and take the game by storm. It was also the year Nike released one of its most unconventional sneakers of all time, the Huarache. Tinker Hatfield designed a shoe unlike anything before, inspired by a Mayan sandal. The shoe was one of the first to be stripped of unnecessary materials for a lightweight masterpiece. The shoes even gave C Webb a little street cred.
