Air Jordan XI

Released: 1995

Complex says: With the Jordan XIs Tinker was reaching for redemption. Not that the IXs or Xs weren’t great but Hatfield admitted that they lacked the technical performance innovation that usually blew the sneaker world away. Many Jordan-heads will argue that the IIIs are the sickest model but the XIs might be more iconic due to MJ's return to the game, the Space Jam cameo, and that clean patent leather design (inspired by, of all things, a lawnmower). Either way, had Twitter existed in November of 1995 you would have seen #TinkerBack.
