Kicks On Court Classic // Every Air Jordan That Michael Jordan Played In

words // Nick DePaula:

The legacy of his Airness remains unquestioned.

His Jordan Brand continues to surge, with retro Air Jordans selling in mass volumes as it ages beyond the thirtieth year of his iconic signature line. He’s the majority owner of a Charlotte Hornets franchise valued at a billion dollars. And of course, a new generation of kids will know him for years to come thanks to his equally iconic crying meme.

It was his legendary career on the court as the sport’s greatest player ever that has earned him such global recognition through the years, and it’s the moments he created on the hardwood in his annual Air Jordans that we’re always excited for a chance to highlight and look back on.

Check out MJ in all of the Air Jordans that he wore throughout his playing career, in our latest edition of Kicks On Court Classic.
