5. Nike Air Max 97
While a few shoes on this list have included full-length air cushioning, the Air Max 97 was the first to do it. What’s better than some air? Even more air, obviously. These 97’s are a timeless design and one of the most sought-after retro releases.
They feature that super sleek wave design along the upper. They were clever in incorporating different materials and stitching to create this effect. The color patterns with this have been endless since their release.
