24. Nike Air Speed Turf Max
You may not remember these shoes, but the reason these kicks have the oversized mid-foot strap is that these were the signature shoe of the one and only Dan Marino. Yes, these are essentially a football shoe.
These shoes had been out of production for a while, but enthusiasts wanted to see a re-release so bad that they petitioned Nike to get it reproduced. They succeeded and were a retro release in the summer of 2012.
23. Nike Air Max2 Uptempo
These shoes were the unofficial shoes of the mid-90s Duke Blue Devils, which may evoke a strong reaction to some college basketball fans one way or the other. No matter your feelings about Coach K’s men, there is no denying these shoes are awesome.
They included the Air Max2 Technology which was a high-pressure united that lacked the holes seen in the traditional Air Max cushioning. All that means is when you were wearing these bad boys, you were locked in and ready to ball out.
22. Nike Air Max Deluxe
The Air Max Deluxe is like the one sibling who breaks with tradition and doesn’t go into the family business. Sure, it’s still an Air Max shoe, but it’s much sleeker than it’s shoe siblings. It even has a design that closely resembles a tie-dye pattern.
And check out the air pockets. The Air Max Deluxe has an air pocket that runs the length of the shoe. There aren’t too many Air Max’s that have that. This shoe definitely stands apart from the Air Max crowd.
