1. Air Jordan 1
The shoe that kicked off the entire series is still the most profitable Jordan Retro to date. That’s no surprise because it still looks fresh today. As soon as you say ‘Air Jordan’ this is the sneaker people think of. In short, you could argue that the design reached its peak in year one.
Obviously the red and black color combination is the most iconic. Furthermore, you can still wear a pair from 1985 and they’ll be fine – that’s how durable they are. The NBA’s ban of the original ‘Air Ship’ design definitely helped them gain infamy. Peter C. Moore’s design is perfect.
