Complex’s latest list takes you back to a time when things were simpler in hip hop and kicks. Their latest list takes a look at sneakers worn on old school hip hop album covers with shoes ranging from the adidas Superstar to the Nike Air Force 1.

Air Jordans were among the most expensive sneakers on the racks in the 1980s and owning a pair was a big deal.

Check out the Air Jordans that made the covers of older albums after the jump and head over to Complex for the full feature.
