34. Nike Cram Vendetta

Year: 1985

Made as a signature shoe for British runner Steve Cram on the back of his Olympic success in the 1500 meters, this Nike model also arrived as the jogging craze really gathered pace. There was the sought-after Cram Destiny for kids in the same black and yellow combo, but this notably non-Air release killed the competition with that yellow overlay on the forefoot. Many children in the UK lusted after this model from afar in its junior or grown-up form and pleaded for a pair — they usually ended up with Dunlop sneakers and a lecture about the Third World.
