19. Air Jordan II
There is nothing particularly wrong with the AJ II. Yet the truth is, it’s just not particularly special in appearance. It definitely isn’t as eye-catching as the first installment, and they suffer because Jordan didn’t wear them for long. Often overlooked by sneaker aficionados, perhaps they deserve more respect.
However, they are a slick design that holds up much better than many from the late 2000s. Made in Italy, they have a luxurious feel to them. The II was also the first in the line not to feature the Nike Swoosh logo. Furthermore, it had better cushioning than the first shoe, which made it very comfortable to wear.
