Air Jordan XV
The Jordan XVs ended a run with Tinker at the head of a sneaker line dynasty. With the XVs he took design cues from the X-15 fighter jet developed by NASA in the 1950s. The sneaker had numerous features that paid homage to some of MJ's favorite Italian designers with the red stripe up the back of the shoe as well as the woven upper.
Like the Jordan Xs, the XV also relied on active NBA players to help carry the line—players like Ray Allen and Reggie Miller favored the XV during the 1999-2000 season. Even though Jordan helped push the shoe through Jordan Brand ads, people wondered if the signature line had come to an end.
