Battles might be nothing new when it comes to sneakers, but with the culture growing fast, so is the level of competition as noted in the latest AJ Club sneaker battle. More than just a sneaker battle, the event was a showcase of some of the rarest footwear in the world.

Rarely ever seen Air Jordan samples were up for battle at the AJ Club, including a number of "45" Air Jordan XIs, Randy Moss Air Jordan XI PEs, unreleased women's XI Lows in pink, and even the incredibly rare White/Orange Air Jordan XI Mid.

Scarce styles from Nike Basketball were on display as well, ranging from never before seen samples such as the "Comic Strip" Air Foamposite One, JKidd Air Flightposite and a range of game-used footwear from this past summer's Olympic Games.
