It wasn’t like the Foams weren’t going to make this list, right? What started as an experiment and a partnership with Penny Hardaway evolved into one of the most recognizable and most popular shoe trends of the last two decades. A handful of SLAMonline writers have professed their love for the Foamposites (see Example 1 and Example 2), and the classic silhouette has already transcended multiple generations of on- and off-court sneakerheads. For more on the Foams from Nike—which is revisiting its most iconic Nike Basketball shoes of the past 20 years this summer—click here.

    Probably the best sneaker ever that does not have a jumpman on it!

    Crazy that 15 years later this shoe is arguably still the best design out there.

    I love everything about this shoe. The design, the comfort level, plus these bad boys are durable as hell.
