Year Introduced: 1987

Nike must have been feeling particularly adventurous following the success of the original Air Jordan. Why else would the second model have been such a radical departure? The first Air Jordan was manufactured in a dizzying array of colorways, the second in just two. The first was $65, the second a stratospheric $100. The first featured a more or less standard Nike design, the second added iguana print leather and did away with the Swoosh - this a full decade before the creation of Jordan Brand.
