1. Air Jordan XI "Bred"

Year: 1996

Another ring, another finals MVP trophy — Michael wore this pair of Bulls-inspired 11s when his team defeated the Seattle Supersonics to win the 1996 NBA Finals. What made this ring even sweeter was Jordan won the championship on Fathers Day — his first ring after his father James was murdered. The all-black uppers matched the rest of the Bulls's footwear (no fines here), but the translucent red soles gave MJ that little bit of extra that he always wanted and showed off the carbon flex plate to its best advantage. The best there ever was, the best there ever will be.
