The very first issue of Complex hit stands back in May 2002. The covers were Nas and Dominic Chianese (Uncle June!) on one side, and Rosario Dawson on the other. And of course the issue featured sneakers — 31 of them, to be exact. Which means over the past decade plus, we have shown a ridiculous amount of sneakers (although the days of putting 31 pairs across three pages are pretty much over). But of all those sneakers we've shown over the years — from promo samples to hyperstrikes to, yes, even general releases — which have been the best? We figured we'd save you the trouble of digging through boxes in the garage and present you with The 50 Best Sneakers Ever Featured In Complex Magazine. Reminisce with us.
