There was no better feeling growing up than rocking a fresh pair of J’s to the mall, throwing on your letterman jacket and three squirts too many of your dad’s cologne, scoping out the babes, copping the free Chinese food samples at the Food Court, and then scarfing down three slices of Sbarro. Looking back, it was a complete waste of time, but for some reason the mall was THE SPOT.

Granted, I approached a total of zero girls in the mall, but I always told myself: ‘Hey, you’re wearing the silly dope Jordans and your the Sack, they’ll come to you.’ They never did. But that doesn’t diminish the confidence boost that accompanies a fly pair of J’s. Always have, always will.

In that same spirit, check out some of the dopest Jordans that are being released before the holidays, via Complex.

Maybe Tinker Hatfield’s greatest work. These bad boys were created when Jordan was striking out on the Birmingham Barons, in part to lure him back to basketball. When Jordan returned to ball in 1995, he rocked these, but was fined $5,000 for not following the Bulls’ all-black shoe policy. Possibly the only shoe on the planet that you can rock with jeans or on your wedding day and be the coolest guy in the room.
