Which one of Michael Jordan’s game-winning shots is most memorable to you? Could it be Michael Jordan’s “Last Shot?” What about the shot he nailed in the ’82 NCAA Championship? Or was it “The Shot?” Our This Day In Sneaker History column spotlights the latter moment mentioned on the 23-year anniversary today. We all remember the two dribbles towards the top of the key, the double-pump jumper in mid-air and the after-shot celebration (in addition to Craig Ehlo’s collapse), but which shoes did MJ hit “The Shot” in? Check out the video below in which associate editor George Kiel III revisits this classic moment.
