The 25 Best Non-Numbered Jordans

Numbered Jordans will forever reign supreme when it comes to models produced by Nike/Jordan Brand, but there are quite a few non-numbered silos not to be slept on. And with that being said, we present the 25 best models in the best colorway looking back to the late '90s leading up to the anticipated release of the Jordan Future model. With so many non-numbered Jordan models out there in a whole myriad of colorways, we're sure there will be disagreements and a fair share of 'get outta here!' with the choices, so please take a look and let us know in the comments section below what are your all-time favorite non-numbered Jordans.

Air Jordan Son of Mars Low White/Cement

Release Year: 2013

We know, we know; fusions. But seriously, the Son of Mars Low, in the above white/cement colorway is a nice shoe. Mixing equal parts AJ III, IV, V & VI, the purists might shake their heads, but these are clean. Wear what you like!

Jordan Team Flow White/Navy

Release Year: 2003

Released back in 2003, many folks slept on the Jumpman Team Flow and that’s a shame because they were truly dope sneakers. J. Kidd himself even laced up a few PEs back in his playing days. With his solid sneaker history, if they’re good enough for J. Kidd, they’re good enough for us.

Jordan CP3.II "Mardi Gras"

Release Year: 2009

Though it may seem like the Jordan CP3.II “Mardi Gras” is a simple homage to Paul’s original NBA team, the New Orleans Hornets, the lore behind details of the design are quite a bit more personal. When Paul was in high school, his grandfather, age 61, was tragically murdered. The day after his funeral, an emotional Chris Paul dropped 61 points, one for each year of his grandfather’s life, in his team’s season opener. This dope colorway was made to honor that part of CP3’s legend…on top of being a dope sneaker, that’s just plain awesome.

Jordan Melo M6 Future Sole "Syracuse"

Release Year: 2010

One of the best sneakers in the ten-year history of the Melo signature line is undoubtedly the Melo M6. And we were really feeling the Future Sole “Syracuse” colorway, worn by the players on ‘Cuse’s 2010 men’s team. The low-key use of elephant print, combined with the flash of the orange patent leather make these Melo’s pop in a truly memorable way.

Jumpman Team J White/Navy

Release Year: 1999

Though it may be tough to track down a clean (re: not yellowed) pair of these Jumpman gems, back in 1999, these Team Js were hot. Using a similar shroud system to Gary Payton’s Glove signature, the Team Js kept it simple.

Jordan Six Rings "Concord"

Release Year: 2008

Originally introduced back in 2008, the Six Rings silhouette was created by fusing elements of all six sneakers that MJ wore while forging his legend and winning six NBA titles in the process. Look, we understand the folks who hate on fusions. We understand it’s a love it or leave it silo, but we’re firmly in favor of the dopeness that is the “Concord” colorway of the Air Jordan Six Rings.

Jumpman Swift 6

Release Year: 1999

Another banger from the Eddie Jone’s signature vault is the Jumpman Swift 6. Dropping in 1999, EJ’s final year as a Laker, the Swift 6 is in desperate need of a retro. These are dope, and a fantastic ’90s throwback.

Jordan Melo 5.5 "All-Star"

Release Year: 2006

Another awesome Carmelo Anthony signature was the memorable Melo 5.5. We’re particularly fond of the All-Star colorway that kept it simple with a clean black and white makeup. Hey JB, as long as we’re retroing Melo silhouettes…

Jordan Quick 6 White/Navy

Release Year: 1998

Another model made for late ’90s Jordan Brand athlete Eddie Jones, the Jordan Quick 6 is a bit of a unicorn. Though EJ’s second signature is one of the more beloved non-numbered or ‘Team’ Jordan silhouettes, because it’s only release was back in 1998, there simply isn’t much information (photographic or otherwise) available. If anyone at JB is reading, we’d love a proper retro to refresh our memory!

Jumpman Team Masterpiece

Release Year: 2000

Sported by Jordan Brand athletes like Mike Bibby, 2000’s Jumpman Team Masterpiece is truly one of the more underrated sneakers from the JB vault (particularly the non-numbered silos). Clean white, tumbled leather uppers and that tonal blue heel piece make the Masterpiece a memorable shoe on, or off the court.

Jordan Pro Strong White/Pine Green-Black

Release Year: 1998

Originally introduced in 1998, the Jumpman Pro Strong held it down for the big men. Modeled after the Air Jordan XIII, we’re particularly fond of the white/pine green colorway that Seattle Super Sonics forward Vin Baker laced up back in the day. Damn, that whole sentence has us feeling really old!

Jordan Alpha Trunner Black/White-Varsity Red

Release Year: 2010

Though we really wanted a retro of the original Jordan Trunner, we were hyped on the reworked Alpha Trunner that JB dropped back in 2010. Giving us a sleeker, more modern look, the Alpha Trunner clearly borrowed some inspiration from the legendary Nike Presto. We can dig that.

Jordan Melo 1.5 'Nubuck'

Release Year: 2004 (2014 retro version pictured)

Originally dropped in 2004, the Melo 1.5 was Carmelo Anthony’s first Jordan Brand signature. We’ve seen more of this dope silhouette recently with Jordan Brand dropping some nice retros earlier this year as Melo celebrates his 10th year under JB’s sponsorship (also, interestingly, the last year of his deal). We’re particularly fond of the black/university blue ‘Nubuck’ iteration that retro’ed in January.

Jumpman Pro Black/White-Royal

Release Year: 1997

Back in 1997, the Jumpman Pro was one of the first ‘Team’ Jordans the brand ever released. The Big Ticket, Kevin Garnett himself used to rock them. And though they retro’ed back in 2008, we simply can’t get enough of this classic. We want to see more colorways of these.

Jordan 3 Percent White/Red-Silver

Release Year: 1999

Another gem from the late 90’s, the Air Jordan 3 Percent is definitely a throwback. Originally releasing back in 1999, the 3 Percent mixed equal parts trainer and hoops shoe, giving us one of our most memorable non-numbered Jays ever. Though Mike Bibby rocked an updated “Alpha” model a few years back, we’d love to see a proper retro of these.

Jordan CP3.III "Tribute Pack"

Release Year: 2010

Maybe it’s the nostalgia we get from the use of black, red and elephant print, but 2010’s CP3.III “Tribute Pack” is straight Dylan…HOT FIRE. Some may knock it for being unoriginal, but frankly with the success of this release, we’re surprised we don’t see more of this from Jordan Brand. We’d certainly cop these again, if given the opportunity.

Jumpman Pro Quick Black/White-Royal

Release Year: 1998

One of the earliest ‘Team’ Jordans in the product line, the Jumpman Pro Quick hit JB accounts all the way back in ’98 and was the go-to for one of the label’s best signature athletes, Eddie Jones. Though the Pro Quick was retro’ed in 2004, and rumored for a second drop in 2012, it strangely escapes the public hype we feel every time we look at it. Too bad too because this one is dope.

Jordan CP3.VII "Bel Air"

Release Year: 2013

When the “Bel Air” colorway made it’s way onto the Air Jordan V last year, we were convinced we’d seen the pinnacle…but then the CP3.VII got hold of it. By no means are we saying this is better than the V, but as one of the top non-numbered silhouette’s Jordan’s ever produced, the CP3.VII just looked right in this “Bel Air” colorway.

Jordan Melo M9 "Christmas"

Release Year: 2012

The 2012 Christmas colorway of the Melo M9 was just excellent. Most Christmas signature colorways go big and bright. But with a tonal grey 3M makeup and a clean, subtle use of that iconic elephant print, the M9 “Christmas” stood out from the pack.

Jordan CP3.V "Wake Forest"

Release Year: 2012

For a few years running, the Jordan CP3 line has given us some serious gems. If they weren’t overshadowed by the crazy hype surrounding each new Jordan retro, we might recognize that CP3s signature line may very well be the best one Jordan Brand makes. One of our all-time favorites are the super dope CP3.V “Wake Forest” that dropped back in 2012.

Jordan Super.Fly 2

Release Year: 2013

Like most of the other silhouettes on this list, the Jordan Super.Fly 2 is a criminally under-appreciated sneaker. With top-of-the-line tech, a clean, modern set of colorways, and a big-name signature athlete in Blake Griffin, it’s crazy that there hasn’t been more hype around the Super.Fly 2.

Jordan Trunner 2000 Black/Red-White

Release Year: 2000

The Jordan Trunner is a bit of Jordan Brand legend. Originally released back in 2000, the first four colorways were actually recalled and redesigned to remove the metal portion below the heel tab. Dicey heel tabs aside, the Trunner made some serious waves at the turn of the century. Our favorite pair was the OG black/red colorway shown above.

Jordan Team 1 "UNC"

Release Year: 1997

Likely the most infamous of the ‘Team’ Jordan silhouettes, 1997s Jordan Team 1 was everywhere in the late 90s. We’re super-hyped, because these have been rumored for a retro in 2014, so we’ve got our fingers crossed for some of the best colorways, like the above white/Carolina blue model.

Air Jordan Spiz'ike Black/Varsity Red-Cement Grey

Release Year: 2010

Originally introduced in 2006, the Spiz’ike is likely the most widely accepted of the Jordan ‘fusion silhouettes. When you see a colorway as well executed as 2010s black/red, it’s a no-brainer.

Air Jordan Future

Release Year: 2014

And what would this list be without the hottest non-numbered Jordan in recent memory? Burning up the internet for the past few weeks, the Air Jordan Future, with it’s iconic outsole and woven upper, appear to be another home run for the boys over at Jumpman. Only time will tell where these ultimately land in the canon of non-numbered Jays. But if the hype surrounding their impending release is any indication, these will be on plenty of year-end favorite lists.
