Non-Original Gangsters: Top 50 Retro Jordan Colorways

The recent “Cool Grey” Air Jordan 11 release sparked the conversation: what is the best non-original colorway? When retro Jordans became the “it” sneakers near the turn of the millenium many JB loyalists scoffed at the thought of new colorways. While OG makeups still garner their deserved share of attention, sneakerheads have come around to the new renditions, case in point the Air Jordan 11 “Cool Grey”. The past decade plus has seen numerous new colorways, but the braintrust at Nice Kicks has counted it down to the 50 best. From various “Cool Grey” releases to shoes inspired by Mike’s alma matter and interests, all were considered. Which pair took the number one spot? Click through to find out.

    I think the 3M toro bravo 5s shoulda taken the place of the red suede toro bravo 5s. and yes, space jams did deserve the #1 spot

    I agree with everything on this list but I think those Melo IIs should not be in the top 10. And what about the Eminem IVs?

    1. Wibmusic says:

      i agree. Eminem IVs should be in the top 25. Toro Bravo is too high up. and CGIX is should be number 1 as evidenced by recent events

      1. Anonymous says:

        people need to start reading. Sneakeraddict just said right here that the Eminem 4s were never sold to the public. and even Nicekicks had just told you that this list excludes rare colorways that were never even released.
