If there’s two things I’m no stranger to, it’s Sneakers and Seinfeld. George’s love for all things Cortez were respectable, but there’s just something about seeing the odd pair of Air Tech Challenge’s, ACG’s or Jordan’s that popped up in Jerry’s scenes that made him that much more official to me.
Niketalk’s had threads bringing the two together over the years, but from what I recall, it’s never been done up with stock photos (where applicable) or Episode guides as reference points. While they definitely looked over pairs (I distinctly remember Cardinal VII’s in Season 6, Episode 3: ‘The Pledge Drive’) Complex‘s ‘Complete Guide to Seinfeld’s Sneakers‘ is definitely comprehensive.
Black & White cookie salute to Complex’s Gary Warnett for attempting this one! Below are just some of my favorite pairs that he’s been spotted in over the legendary 9 Season run of the series.
#7. Nike Air Tech Challenge 3/4 Black/White/Hot Lime
#14. Nike ACG Air Mowabb Cream/Champagne/Mandarin
#15. Nike Air Jordan VI White/Sport Blue – A personal favorite of mine, and the reason why I got into sneakers in the first place. See me for my OG Size 7’s if you know me.
#17. Nike Air Jordan V White/Grape
Had to dig these two photos out of my digital archive, as they’re mentioned in the list but not shown.
Extra special shouts to YOU if you were up on the Air Seinfeld before reading this list!
The only comedian with a signature shoe? Quite possibly.
