10. Air Jordan 9 “Barons”
A tribute to Michael Jordan’s baseball odyssey, the “Barons” retro is a white, gray and black sneaker that could have easily existed even without the tie-in — but the “45” on the heel is pure genius for those of us who actually care about storytelling in sneakers. However, this is not the Air Jordan 9 that His Airness actually wore as a baseball player. He wore a black and white pair that has yet to drop, and is sitting nicely at Nike HQ in Beaverton, waiting for a retro.
