Some hard-to-find Nike shoes include the Air Jordan 6 Olympic, the Air Jordan 12 Nubuck, the Air Jordan 13 Attitude, and the Air Jordan 4 Laser. Many of these are rare because the original production of the shoes was extremely limited.
The Air Jordan 6 Olympic production run was limited to only 3,000 pairs and was sold only through Niketown retailers and on the Nike website. These shoes became popular because Vin Baker and Ray Allen wore them in the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000.
The Air Jordan 12 Nubuck was released only through Nike's Jumpman23 website in 2003. It was popular because it came bundled as a package that included a hoodie and pinwheel that matched the shoes. The Air Jordan 13 Altitude shoes also had limited release in 2005 through select Niketown and Urban Account stores. This helped drive demand up for these shoes, but the supply remained low, making them very hard to find.
The limited release of the Air Jordan 4 Laser was similar to that of the Nubuck: the Laser also came with a matching bundle, this one including a t-shirt and flexfit hat, and the Laser also had a very limited release through Nike's Jumpman23 website in 2005.
