has some more Air Jordan collaborations in the works, and this time around they’re unearthing an shoe from MJ’s short-lived Wizards era, but with a twist. The Air Jordan 17 Low originally released in 2002 in Mid and Low form, with the latter being featured on Michael Jordan’s feet during the 2002 NBA All-Star Game. The colorway he wore was the “Lightning” version as it featured the bright yellow on the heel/midfoot of the predominately white/black shoe, but what made those sneakers so memorable was that MJ totally choked on a wide-open breakaway dunk attempt, leaving both benches in laughter. Jordan laughed it off, but the Lightning 17s lived on forever as a cult classic.The Air Jordan XVII represents one of the most unique phases of the life of Michael Jordan.Jordan’s love for the game of basketball could not be contained, and in a surprising move, the six-time champion and greatest of all-time returned to the NBA as a member of the Washington Wizards.Nike Air Jordan 2017

is coming back this Spring/Summer 2016 season. You might remember this sneaker from Mike’s final comeback tour as it released in 2002 around the time that Michael Jordan came back to play for the Washington Wizards. Inspired by the luxury of the Aston Martin and improvisation in jazz, the Air Jordan 17 + came with a removable shroud to cover the lacing system. One of the more memorable colorways was this Copper Jordan 17 which featured a luxurious croc-skin on the heel while copper accents hit the lace eyelets and branding throughout to match Mike’s Wizards uniform at the time. It makes complete sense that Jordan Brand selected this base of White and Red, because Chicago is, after all, Michael Jordan’s “home” city.You may have seen similar iterations of the Air Jordan Legacy in this pristine white/red composition, and if you happened to stop by the Nike WBF in the Chi, you probably caught these in the Jordan Brand experience space.
