Air Jordan XIIWho: Gary Payton
Original Release Year: 1996
Complex Says: GP was no slouch with his shoe game, and during his attempt at a title run with the Lakers, Nike hit him up with some nice PEs. In ’97 Nike decided to launch the Jordan Brand and the XIIs were the first sneaker that did not have the Nike logo anywhere on the sneaker. They were also the last to drop in a Nike box.
