Michael Jordan and the Air Jordan1 needed a hard exterior to deflect all the criticism and “hate” he received during the earlier part of his career. His sneakers were banned by the league and Isiah Thomas tried to “teach him a lesson” during the 1985 All-Star game by conspiring with fellow All-Stars to keep the ball away from a young MJ. Of course, we all know that Jordan returned the favor in 1992. The Air Jordan 1 Anodized might be an embodiment of a young Michael Jordan; an Air Jordan 1 – the shoe that Jordan received so much heat for – with a harder exterior shell. Both of these November 2010 colorways just hit Extra Butter so check your local Jordan account soon, or pick up a pair on eBay.
