I just accidently found this list. I don't know how much I agree, but I still find it interesting. All stars should be number 1, in my opinion. Cortez belongs in the top 5, yes. Jack Purcell should be waaaay higher. Reebok Freestyle should be replaced by the Reebok Newport etc. The complete top 100 list 1.Nike Air Jordan III 2.Reebok Freestyle 3.Nike Air Jordan XI 4.Converse Chuck Taylor 5.Nike Cortez 6.Nike Air Max 7.Reebok Princess 8.Nike Air Jordan X 9.Nike Waffle Trainer 10.Nike Air Jordan IV 11.Nike Air Jordan II 12.Nike Tailwind 13.Adidas Superstar 14.Adidas Stan Smith 15.K-Swiss Classic 16.Reebok Pump 17.Nike Air Max 95 18.Nike Air Bound 19.Reebok Newport Classic 20.Nike Air Force 1 21.Nike Air Edge 22.Nike Magnum Force 23.Nike Air Jordan IX 24.Nike Air Mada 25.Nike Air Trainer Max 2 26.Fila FX-100 27.Nike Air Jordan XIII 28.Nike Air Diamond Turf 29.Fila Grant Hill I 30.Converse Pro Leather 31.Nike Air Much Uptempo 32.Keds CVO 33.Nike Pegasus 34.Nike Air Jordan VI 35.Nike Air Jordan XII 36.Adidas Response Trail 37.Nike Oceania 38.Reebok BB4600 39.Nike GTS 40.Nike Wimbledon 41.Reebok Ex-O-Fit 42.Nike Icarus 43.Adidas Gazelle 44.Nike Terra TC 45.Nike Air Maestro 46.Fila Snow White 47.Reebok CL-1000 48.Reebok Classic Leather 49.Reebok Club C 50.Nike Air Max SC 51.

The list, selected from a roster of more than 320 sneakers by a panel of veteran Footaction footwear buyers, merchandisers, and other company executives, was chosen subjectively based on critical recognition, popularity over time, historical importance, selling power, and cultural impact. ``As a leading athletic footwear retailer for more than 20 years, who better to assemble a list of the best shoes of all time,'' said Footaction President and CEO Ralph Parks, who served on the panel. ``Sneakers are American icons. They're part of our culture.'' Four versions of the Air Jordan rank in Footaction's top 10 of all time, including numbers III (No. 1 on the list), XI (3), X (8), and IV (10). A fifth Air Jordan -- the Jordan II -- just missed, finishing at No. 11. Other shoes making the top 10 are the Reebok Freestyle (2), Converse Chuck Taylor (4), Nike Cortez (5), Nike Air Max (6), Reebok Princess (7), and Nike Waffle Trainer (10). As the top 10 would indicate, Nike dominates the list with 54 shoes, including 17 of the top 25 and all 14 releases of the Air Jordan. Reebok landed the second most shoes on the list with 13, followed by Adidas with 11. In all, shoes from 16 brands make up the top 100. Popular shoes missing the cut include the Etonic Trans-Am Trainer, Adidas Pro Model, Reebok AXT, and Nike Air Penny. Athletic shoe fanatics are invited to share their opinions about the top 100 sneakers at the Footaction USA website (http://www.footaction.com), which features more detailed information about each of the selections, as well as images of many the shoes that made the list. Founded in 1976, Footaction USA operates 570 stores in 45 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The company is a division of Footstar, Inc. (NYSE: FTS - news).
