There’s a general consensus that the Air Jordan Legacy peaked in MJ’s early years and that the series hasn’t been quite the same since Michael Jordan swished the ‘Lasth Shot’, but does a similar common sense exist for running kicks?  European sneakerheads have long professed a love of ‘trainers’ even beyond basketball kicks (as might be the opposite of the stateside sneakerhead population), and Complex has finally set out to determine the all-time best.  As per the usual, the list has its fair share of safe picks, cult favorites and some you may have never seen before, but did they get the ordering right?  Click through to see a sampling of what’s in store then head over to Complex for the list in its entirety.

If your gonna talk about running shoes you gotta include some brooks or the real asics running shoes. Those arent on there cause there not made for fashion i guess.

These lists are not news, they are advertisements for Complex, which is an embarrassment to the shoe game. You should probably stop posting them because it makes sneakernews.com look shoddy. ComplexMediaNetwork is just an advertisement for itself!! Redundant nothingness!!

the guys at COMPLEX obviously are not runners. so many better running shoes that they missed, they only chose fashion wise shoes not runners. LAME
