With so many kicks on the market, finding the best of the best calls for a little bit more than just strolling into the shoe store with some spare change. To help you isolate the best of the bunch, our Sneaker of the Week is a chance for us to highlight some shoes that you need to add to your rotation. Thanks to some help from our partner Finish Line, we’re calling out the best sneakers on shelves today.

No one can argue that the Jordan XI isn’t a classic shoe. Originally released in 1996, the shoe would ultimately become a symbol of MJ’s return to basketball following his first retirement and time in minor league baseball. This release, using a design that takes cues from a pair he wore in the 1995 playoffs, is a unique beast that practically speaks for itself.

With a concord and black colorway, higher-than-average patent leather mudguard, and the especially unique number “45” stitched into the heel (as opposed to his usual “23”), this shoe is sure to stand out among roughly two decades of XIs.

While this drop is sure to end 2016 with a bang, you can rest assured that Finish Line is the source for your chance to secure a pair when this drops tomorrow, December 10.
