    1985-86 Michael Jordan Game Worn Sneakers. Whether as a basketball player or a marketing icon, there's little question that Michael Jordan should be included high on the short list of the greatest of all time. And no partnership between athlete and corporation has been more successful than the marriage of Jordan and Nike, who fed off one another to create a culture of consumerism unprecedented in the sporting goods universe. In that regard, few modern pieces of sports equipment could be considered more historically relevant than the pair of sneakers presented here, the Original Nike Air Jordans, worn on the court by the man who would come to rule the basketball world. Sneaker-philes will assure you that this style is the hottest of commodities in the complete absence of any direct ownership by the man who gave them their name. But Original Air Jordans from the feet of Jordan? It doesn't get any better than that!

    This pair of shoes holds the interior inventory code of "850204-TYPS," assuring 1985 vintage. A half-size differential, typical of Jordan, is present here as well. Left shoe is size thirteen, and the right size thirteen and a half, a size never available for public purchase. Jordan played only eighteen games this season due to an ankle injury, making this game used pair all the more rare. Wear is light but apparent, proper for an athlete who even at this early stage would wear sneakers for only a single game. The Jordan era begins here! LOA from Lou Lampson.
