Last night, we saw Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Hornets fall to the Miami Heat in a grueling seven-game playoff series. MJ might be old and long retired, but you had to imagine that there was a big part of him that desperately wanted to suit up in the purple and teal to help his team beat the Heat, literally and figuratively. Sadly, those days when MJ wouldn’t even let his team get to a Game 7 are gone and all we have now are our memories and this awesome image of teammate Scottie Pippen surprising MJ at the owner’s suite and showing him some love in a tough time last night, kind of like when he was there for His Airness during the famous Flu Game.

Awww, man, all the feels, right? And those kicks, man, those awesome kicks. They’re coming back this month and as you might expect, is the highlight of May. But there are plenty of heat dropping this month that don’t have a Jumpman on them, so let’s take a look at our picks for the Top 10 Kicks To Watch For In May.

Air Jordan 10 GG Heiress

Nike
Nike

Release Date: May 7
Price: $150

The signature piece of the women’s exclusive Jordan Heiress Collection, this pair and another release later on in this countdown is going to have a lot of guy in their emotions. Not just because of the colorway, mind you, but the retail price. At $150, Jordan retros are once again within the realm of reasonable and if this type of pricing can creep its way into the Men’s sizes (it won’t because we’re suckers and we’ll gladly pay $190 for what we want), we will have the #ChicksOnFire to thank.

Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin

Release Date: May 21
Price: $400

After the shocking sell out of the Air Jordan 4 PRM Black, it appears that Jordan fans don’t appear to have any limits when it comes to price ceilings. The snakeskin will not have the same broad appeal of a black and white AJ4, but it will have its fans so expect the same result as these kicks will not last long in stores.

Under Armour Curry Two Mother’s Day

Foot Locker
Foot Locker

Release Date: May 6
Price: $130

Let’s all just hope that Steph is healthy enough to rock these on Mother’s Day like he says he will be. Or he can just rest until the Western Conference Finals and make sure he’s ready for the Spurs. What? You really think Portland or OKC have a chance at this point?

Air Jordan 10 Los Angeles

Shoe Palace
Shoe Palace

Release Date: May 14, 2016
Price: $190

The cool blue of this City Collection release captures the spirit of Los Angeles so well that you almost want to get on your ride and head down to Santa Monica right this moment. Of course, you realize that would take a two hour drive if you’re lucky because traffic is terrible any time of day to Santa Monica and you think better of it. But yeah, Los Angeles!

Nike Flyknit Racer Multicolor 2016

Nike
Nike

Release Date: May 13
Price: $150

Arguably the most popular Flyknit Racer style besides last year’s 2.0 release and the original that dropped a few years back, the grey tongue is really the obvious thing that will distinguish which pair you have. Is that key difference a hindrance or not that big of a deal in the long run?

Nike Kobe 11 EM Carpe Diem

Shoe Palace
Shoe Palace

Release Date: May 21
Price: $160

It’s been a long time since we had a “Carpe Diem” Kobe colorway, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be welcomed back warmly. Now if only it had the same patch as the original on the Kobe 4 had once upon a time…

Pharrell x adidas Elastic Lace-Up

adidas
adidas

Release Date: May 5
Price: $105

Hmmm, it’s got the Pharrell co-sign, it looks reminiscent of the Stan Smith and the price and hype are not super high in comparison to say, a Kanye release. With apologies to the ClimaCool 1, this could be the next big thing from adidas Originals. Expect a headline in the future that talks about Pharrell being credited with adidas’ turnaround and Kanye is just for the hypebeasts. Like we didn’t know that already, geez…

Air Jordan 12 GS University Blue

Release Date: May 21
Price: $140

Sorry, guys, but we can’t win them all as this pair are only dropping in smaller sizes. Between this release and the Air Jordan 12 Dynamic Pink earlier this year, the #ChicksOnFire and the kids have been getting plenty of love from Jordan Brand.

Nike Kobe 11 Tinker

Oneness
Oneness

Release Date: May 5
Price: $200

About the only thing that would make this even more hyped than it already is would be if Nike had replaced Hattori Hanzo’s Kobe’s logo with a Jumpman.

Air Jordan 12 Flu Game

Gio Gonzalez

Release Date: May 28
Price: $190

Yeah, s**t just got real. Along with the Air Jordan 3 True Blue (Black Friday) or Air Jordan 11 Space Jam (Holidays) that will be dropping later this year, this is one of the must-have retro of 2016. Worn by Michael Jordan during arguably his finest moment sans nubuck and emojis, here’s hoping Jordan Brand made a few million pairs of these so that anybody that wants them can cop them.
