In the spring of 1995, Michael Jordan returned from baseball wearing new shoes and a new number. While Jordan would start the comeback in the Air Jordan X and donning the number 45, he eventually would change numbers and change sneakers. As a final result, he went back to the famous 23 and the infamous Air Jordan XI.

The Air Jordan XIs would be best known as Jordan’s wheels for the famed 95-96 season that saw the Bulls go 72-10 en route to their 4th championship. The classic shoe was produced in several classic colorways, each of which MJ made history in.

Air Jordan 11 Black/Varsity Royal-White

The Black/Varsity Royal colorway is best known for its role in Space Jam, but before they hit the big screen Mike unleashed them during the 95 Conference Semis against the Orlando Magic. It’s hard to believe that Money broke out both the Concords and the Space Jams in the same series, especially for the fact that no one had seen either before. Aside from the Conference Semis and his run with the Tune Squad, the Space Jams were not worn again on court by MJ and were not released with the other original colorways.

Back in basketball and back in the playoffs, Jordan and the Bulls faced the young and loaded Orlando Magic. The series saw the debut of the Space Jams and also the first playoff series lost after the first 3-Peat. Jordan battled against Penny Hardaway, finishing with 39 points, 4 boards, and 2 assists in the losing effort.
