2. Nike Air Max I (Air Max 87)
If you didn’t have visible air in your shoes you were a punk. Just imagine rolling up to the court in 1987 without visible air on your shoes. Not only were you picked last, but you’d feel about two feet tall. Not a good feeling on the court.
Joking aside, the Air Max 1 is a beautiful sneaker that gave rise to one of the highest performing lines in all of the athletic shoe wear. Air Max 1’s set the bar for all other trainers and is still very popular today.
