Michael Jordan’s supremacy doesn’t restrict itself to basketball. The brand that began with one sneaker (that was subsequently banned by the league) has spread its wings to football, baseball, motorsports, and even jazz (yes, there is a jazz musician signed onto Jordan Brand). Even if dribbling a basketball isn’t your M.O., chances are you’ve wanted to ‘be like Mike’ in one way or another. C.C. Sabathia is one of the few Jordan Brand athletes in Major League Baseball, and we’ve documented his Air Jordan Cleat PEs over the years – one of the more notable ones being the Space Jams that he’s worn during significant outings. What makes this PE different from most of the PE Cleats we’ve seen is that the cleated outsole features a Jumpman logo, opposed to the Swoosh seen on quite a few others. Check out the extra shots of this deadstock pair of the Space Jam cleats and let us know who you would nominate to be the next Jordan Brand athlete in the MLB! via phase2x.
