Worn by: Michael Jordan (1995 NBA Playoffs)
Year: 1995

Back when MJ was playing in the 4-5 (he eventually switched back to number 23 during the series), Mike came off hiatus to try and help the Bulls regain its spot at the top of the Eastern Conference. Mike wasn’t quite himself after taking few years off, but his sneaker game was still on point. During the semifinals against the Orlando Magic, fans caught a glimpse of the white and black patent leather kicks on his feet that would soon be confirmed to be the Air  Jordan XI. Ahmad Rashad even covered the kicks on air, knowing how much of a game changer the model would be. They went on to a have some success after that, even before social media and blogs took over the sneaker landscape.
