22. Nike Air Metal Force

When: 1997

Who: Vince Carter

Complex Says: Back when Vinsanity was a human highlight reel night in and night out, he helped his Tar Heels reach the Final Four a pair of seasons. Making his way out with Coach Smith, Carter was selected fifth overall in the 1998 NBA Draft. The Metal Force was something of a low-flash shoe despite the Max bag — all the better to keep the attention on VC himself.
