Michael Jordan’s return to the game of basketball in 2001 caused shockwaves across the globe. The entire NBA scene was rattled when Jordan stepped down as President of Basketball Operations and signed on as starting Shooting Guard for the Washington Wizards. This is why the Air Jordan XVII has a special place in many Jordan-fans hearts; it was the first signature Air Jordan shoe that released when Michael Jordan returned to the game (for the second time).
Here’s a piece of history for you Jordan fans to admire; a GAME WORN pair of the Air Jordan XVII Low in an unreleased Washington Wizards colourway (we got a similar White/Univ Blue colourway). The heel shows the Jumpman logo with MJ’s 23 stitched on in a light bronze and you’ll also notice a few scuffs and creasing that occurred when Jordan schooled young’ns with his fadeaway jumper (or when he indirectly ended Ron Mercer’s career by authoritatively blocking that shot off the backboard). This is truly a treat for the ages; check out the detailed pics and let us know what you think. via Kenlu.
