After early reports and tons of speculation, the Air Jordan 3 goes back to school, as the “UNC” iterations pay homage to Micahel Jordan and his days at the University of North Carolina. The all-white upper gets a Tar Heel makeover on the tongue, eyelets and heel cap of the shoe. The pair features the signature elephant print on the front and back of the shoe that brings the silhouette together as if Jordan himself wore them.

5. Sacai x Nike LDV Waffle

Sacai and Nike are back at it again with this collaborative sneaker that draws on the brand's historic waffle outsole created by the legendary Bill Bowerman. The multi-layered shoe features a more neutral approach than previous iterations with an all-black and all-white upper. Unlike the previous installments, this Sacai x Nike drop features a nylon upper rather than the breathable mesh from prior collabs. Nonetheless, both are a must in any collector’s rotation.
