Year Introduced: 1996

1996's Top Ten 2000 looked toward the future while giving a nod to the past. Naming a sneaker for a year just four years in the future may have been a strange decision, no matter how futuristic "2000" sounded even in the mid '90s, but that didn't stop players like Kobe Bryant and Jermaine O'Neal from lacing them up. The Feet You Wear model didn't really evoke the original Top Ten in terms of design, but it was a strong shoe in its own right. It's perhaps worth noting that Iman Shumpert, who has been their strongest NBA advocate of late, was just 10 years old in 2000.
