Jordan XVII 

2002

The most expensive Air Jordan of all time at a cool $200, the Air Jordan XVII was presented in a metal briefcase that should have come with a pair of handcuffs. Instead, it arrived with a CD of videos and imagery giving some of the backstory to the jazz-inspired (no Utah) shoe. The metal box had been seen earlier in 2001 with the release of a series of Japan exclusive Air Jordan 1 retros, but this was a first (and, as it turned out, last) for a mass-marketed shoe.
