    its a nice list, but there are just a few that i would change around. the penny 1s at #25? you gotta be kidding me! grant hills in the top 5? i had a pair of them too, and i loved them, but top 5? no.

  3. Ronlorenzo says:

    the list is wack….how can the pippen & tmac shoes be higher than the penny shoes? wtf?!?!

    1. Sole Eater says:

      T-Mac shoes go hard only the Foamposites are better but Pippen was a disgrace to be that high.

  8. raync says:

  9. RETRO5S says:

    i hope this was in no particular order…if it was, then…smh.

  10. House3042 says:

    I rarely take the time to comment on anything, but this list was the worst list I’ve ever seen compiled.

  11. Sole Eater says:

    Worst List Ever. Kobe V are too high up, they picked the wrong Gary Paytons, The wrong T-mac Shoe, and picked too many signatures from Nike. Straight played Adidas out. Mad I wasted my time looking at that list.

  12. NewJerseyGiant says:

    Where are the pippin Flights or more uptempo’s? The Dee Brown Pumps? The other Gary Paytons with the chrome [forgot the name], this list is a huge joke and is favored more towards Jordan. THe Kobe IV and V’s werent even his best sneakers. The Huarache 2k4′s and 2k5′s will forever be Kobe’s best Nike’s, and those Kobe adida’s need to be replaced with the Crazy 8s….Bump this list.
