8. Jordan Melo M10 – Quality materials, killer cushion and outstanding traction. So… why aren’t they my #1? Because they were last year… sort of. The Air Jordan XX8 & XX8 SE were my top picks of 2013. This is essentially the same shoe but built the way I remember Jordan’s being built – with actual leather. Sometimes when you snooze, you lose… they needed to roll the Melo M10 out a little sooner than they did, but that doesn’t mean I dislike them at all; I’d just rather pick any of the next 7 sneakers over them at this point in time.
