9. Nike Air Bakin

Year: 1997

Player: Tim Hardaway

Complex says: The Air Bakins were almost as cold as Timmy's crossover. Worn by Hardaway and former Run-TMC running mate Mitch Richmond throughout the season, they caught a little heat for having the "Air" script on the heel resemble the Arabic form of "Allah". Praises due either way — you can also thank them for your Posite Boots.
