Air Jordan 1 Game Worn PE
No, you’re not looking at Jordans retro-fitted for Forrest Gump, but rather an extremely rare pair of Air Jordans sported by Michael during his second year in the league. While many of you are probably too young to recall (myself included), Michael burst onto the scene in 1985 locking up rookie of the year honors and literally flying high into his sophomore campaign. During that second season he sustained a serious foot injury which sidelined him for nearly the entire season. Upon his return, Nike—this was before the off-shoot Brand Jordan, mind you—galvanized a pair of Air Jordan 1s with an ankle and foot strap for added support. Nike was taking no chances with their monumental investment and what a prudent investment Michael turned out to be. Mike sported these specific kicks for only a couple of days and then they were said to be lost, buried deep in the sneaker coffers of Nike, Michael, or some lucky fanatic. After decades lurking in the shadows, these Air Jordan 1 Game Worn PEs have resurfaced and created quite the clamor amongst sneaker fanatics. Before you go ahead and try to grab these for the sneaker lover in your life, come to grips with the $25,000 price tag and then forego that shiny new whip and take the plunge on eBay.
