    Air Jordan sneakers have become the norm among young basketball players wanting to soar like the great Michael Jordan.

    Jordan’s numerous pairs of Air Jordan sneakers have been through a historic NBA career that accomplished many milestones.

    The shoes are so popular that even other NBA stars don the shoes regularly.

    To date, there have 26 different signature pairs of Air Jordan shoes to hit the market, with each one drawing more hype than the next.

    The shoes revolutionized athletic footwear, and we can only wait and see what’s next on the list.

    I have power-ranked each pair depending on style, performance ability and what Jordan achieved in each shoe.

    Note: All of the Jordan signature shoes are pretty awesome, so the rankings may seem arbitrary at times.

    1999

    This shoe was a memorable one for Jordan.

    It was the last shoe he wore as a Chicago Bull when he drained the jumper over Byron Russell to secure the Bulls' third straight championship and sixth of Jordan's career in 1998.

    The shoe itself was inspired by a Ferrari.

    Designed by Bruce Kilgore and manufactured in Italy, this shoe was a big hit when it first came out.

    The Swoosh-less upper and faux lizard print made it a must have in footwear.
