31. Nike Air Tech Challenge Hybrid Agassi
They're a mix of the Air Tech Challenges 1-4 Agassi used to attack the court in. They combined everything good about each one and made this color splash sneaker. Plus, Agassi had some strong, albeit enhanced flow back in the day.
32. Rainbow Classics
The originals. Not the leathers, but the simple rubber ones with the blue strap. clean-cut, non-hippy.
33. Sperry Chukka for J. Crew
J. Crew's collaboration with iconic brands has been fruitful (check out the Barbour jacket, an old row staple). These chukkas are in an exclusive leather color and are lined with cotton chambray. Throw on khakis and go chase sundresses.
34. Reef Mick Fanning
The bottle opener on the bottom. Sure it's stereotypical "Bro" and kind of toolbaggy (like pookah shell necklaces), but it was the first of its kind. I'm not quite sure how I feel about a filthy shoe popping my bottle top, but then again I don't have high moral fiber.
Remember Sean Penn rocking them in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"? That classic movie unveiled these skater mainstays. The rap group "The Pack" does a good coverage song. These were huge in the '90s but are still being worn...
36. SeaVees 10/61
Real California chill. SeaVees made their splash in the the 1960s. All the shoes are named after essential dates in Cali history (which I assume means multiple big wave sprees). These particular SeaVees are made with J. Crew, but you can't go wrong on most of their shoes: totally comfortable.
37. Nike Air Force 1
Songs have been dedicated to this shoe. It has an enormous amount of limited/special edition versions. Don't you want to be like the Nelly and the St. Lunatics?
38. Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski
Always Be Chaying rocks them. We sent him out to LA for the USC tailgate and he comes back all Cali status in these. They're laid back, great summer shores, and perfect with jeans.
39. Asics Gel Lyte Speed
Asics make a solid sneaker for the gym, but when they decide to make one more geared toward the sneaker crowd, it's hit or miss. This is a huge hit. Plus they're light (think Nike Lunar).
40. Reebok Zig Tech
I have no idea how these sneakers work. All I know is Crosby, Payton, Ocho, and John Wall are pushing them, and supposedly a lot of NFL players are using them to train. They're one of those shoes that is so odd looking, they're legit.
