See if your favorites made the cut and check out sizing for each shoe below!
No. 10 – Nike Air Force 1 Low
The Air Force 1 has defined shoe culture since the moment it stepped onto the court. And it continues to be a fashion staple thanks to clean lines, a strong midsole, and new and classic colorways in low, mid and high-top styles.
No. 9 – Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2
The second generation of the original Yeezy Boost 350, the V2 version featured a higher-cut and patterned Primeknit upper with a contrasting stripe that read “SPLY – 350.” The reworked upper sat on a larger volume adidas Boost sole.
No. 8 – Nike Flex Contact
The Nike Flex Contact is made with stretchy material that lets your foot move naturally for comfort on the go.
No. 7 – Nike Revolution 4
The Nike Revolution 4 Men’s Running Shoe adds support and comfort to your run with a lightweight, breathable upper and plush cushioning.

Hit up the skate park or show off your casual street style in the men’s Ward low-top sneaker from Vans.
No. 5 – Nike Air Huarache
Designed to stretch with your foot, the Nike Air Huarache Men’s Shoe has remained a sneaker staple since its 1991 debut, when it changed the face of running footwear forever.
No. 4 – Jordan XI
The Air Jordan 11 debuted in 1995 as Michael Jordan’s 11th signature sneaker. It continues to be one of the most popular Air Jordans of all-time with many retro releases in its vast catalog of colorways.
No. 3 – Converse Chuck Taylor Ox Low
You need a style to rely on. The Chuck Taylor All-Star is a staple: the high-top and oxford silhouettes stay simply classic, while the white laces and star ankle patch give a nod to the legacy of the Chuck. This is the go-with-everything go-to that you won’t get sick of going to. Stock up.
No. 2 – Nike Air Max 270
The Nike Air Max 270 Men’s Shoe is inspired by two icons of big Air: the Air Max 180 and Air Max 93. It features Nike’s biggest heel Air unit yet for a super-soft ride that feels as impossible as it looks.
No. 1 – Nike Tanjun
Named after the Japanese word for “simplicity,” the Nike Tanjun Men’s Shoe offers a streamlined, modern design for an elevated everyday look.
