Featuring Nike Air technology, Air Jordans have been a staple for athletes, collectors, and laymen alike for over two decades. Designed to be able to take a beating on the court while keeping one's feet and ankles protected, they're also quite stylish. The question is, which style works for you? We've made answering that easy by rounding up ten of the most functional, versatile and elegant pairs.

Editor's Notes

October 22, 2018:

As it as with shoes as in-demand as Air Jordans are, models tend to be discontinued or sold out fairly often. This being the case, we did away with models that were no longer available for purchase. Some of the newcomers on our list, such as the Ol' School, inhabit the lower-rung of the Jordan totem-pole in terms of cost, yet they consistently outperform and outsell some of their more pricey (and often overpriced) brethren. That said, we were thrilled to learn about the 13 Retro History of Flight and the story behind them. Despite their price, they absolutely deserve a place on this list.

Daniel is a writer, musician, and frequent traveler with a bachelor’s in creative writing from the State University of New York. In recent years, his writing chops have developed alongside his musical skills, thanks to a rich double life. During the day, he apprenticed with “Rolling Stone” journalist and critic Will Hermes, and when the sun set, he and his NYC-based, four-piece band gigged at high-end venues across the northeastern United States. His affinity for sharing things he's passionate about has culminated in nine years of experience as a music teacher at elementary schools, where he honed his ability to simplify and elucidate concepts to the uninitiated. All considered, he feels most at home writing about instruments, audio electronics and backpacking gear.
