Nike Air Pippen (Black/Red)
Real basketball fans know there would never have been a Bulls Dynasty without Pip playing wingman for Jordan in the Small Forward position, and while his own signature line never received the marketing dollars the Jumpman did, Chicago's successes during the second 3-peat cemented the original Air Pippen silhouette in the collective minds of basketball fans worldwide. This SF writer thought these OG Pippens were the truth when they retroed in 2008 or 2009! Dropping during the Air Jordan CDP craze, the OG Bred Pippens completely flew under the radar when they were last re-released, maybe this time around they might get the love they deserve? Judging from its low-key release with literally zero fanfare from Nike, this doesn't look likely, but hey that means this will be an easy cop for everyone who remembers and loves the original Air Pippen.
