8. Air Jordan XI Low "White/Varsity Red"

Year: 2001

Released on the same day as some of the other lows on this list, the varsity red color scheme was both simple yet clean for people to wear during the summer months. It was nice to see a low XI that was consistent with the patent design but could be worn with shorts. (It would have been even nicer if they released the Bred ones that MJ wore in the '96 Playoffs, but — well, it's not too late?)
