Despite being featured on a nation advertisement for the Air Jordan XIX, Gary Payton is often forgotten as a Jordan Brand athlete. It was that funky era for Jordan Brand, which fell after Michael’s retirement from the Wizards and his awkward ousting as the President of Team Operations, but that didn’t mean that innovation and design was still the focus of the Air Jordan. The Air Jordan XIX, at the time, was the lightest Air Jordan ever made, and it fit the game of the defensive-minded floor-general Gary Payton; we’ve shown you these Air Jordan XII Player Exclusives before, but this particular is not only game-worn, but also autographed by The Glove himself.
