Year Introduced: 1983

Speed lacing and a Velcro ankle strap were what separated the Concord from its Top Ten predecessor, taking an aging (but still relevant) basketball shoe hurtling into the future. Nike's Air Revolution utilized a similar lacing setup, but it wouldn't appear until five years later. The Concord also saw plenty of off-court wear, especially in snakeskin and patent leather makeups that were even MORE ahead of their time.
