The Air Jordan XI ‘Space Jam’ with the ’45’ on the heel is one of the rarest Air Jordan samples out there. While this pair of custom Space Jams aren’t exactly a direct Jordan Brand product, it still captures that rare-sample mystique. Here’s a look at a pair of 2009 Retro Space Jams with MJ’s ’45’ jersey number lasered on the upper ankle of the medial side of the shoes; the laser customs were done at the Jordan Brand Experience during the 2010 NBA All-Star Weekend, when Jordan fans were given the rare opportunity to add Jordan-centric laser-graphics on their items. The owner of these Space Jams got a bit creative and decided to add the ’45’ on this deadstock pair – an idea unlikely duplicated by anyone else! Check out a closer shot of the ’45’ laser as well as general shots of these Air Jordan beauties below, and if you like the concept behind the ’45’, check out the auction from noname2828 on eBay.
I WAS AT DA #JORDANBRANDEXPIERENCE.I SEEN SOME SUCKAS LASERING THE FRONT OF CMFTS AND SOMEONE EVEN LASERED THERE NAME ON A XI.HAHANOW..WHAT DOESNT MAKE SENSE 2 ME IS WHY WOULD U LASER 45 ON DA SIDE AND THEN HAVE THE #23 ON DA HEEL....
SMFHat at these mofos making making profits on shoes. Game done changed ... everyone thinking money, money, money ... nobody wanted RF kicks, now everybody copping for resell. Now, look at these, dude lasers '45' in the shoe and now tries to flip them for fucking outrageousness. wtf, man! Dude coulda made them his own but instead tries to make a general sample copy. Such a waste of a golden opportunity, but the joke will be on us if he does sell them for $1600 because some sucker bites on this seller's worm like retarded fish.
adding stuff to jordans urself doesn't increase the value unless ur a known and well established customizer, especially not like 6 times what they are actually worth...u are not picasso son..get real. these will stay on ebay for years without being bought..
This isn't the first pair I have seen. There have been a couple of these shoes floating around on ebay...all with the same story about all star weekend. They all must have jumped in line like sheep once the first guy did it. I think one seller was asking 550 for his and they didnt sell. Cool idea but would have just personalized them if I had the same opportunity. Try to create a memory instead of a profit.
so you ruined a perfectly good pair of space jams for what!? all you did was give people a reason to think your kix is fake, thats BRILLIANT...
Stupid. Did this really warrant a post? I can scribble 45 on any shoe I want and send you guys a pic.
these are dumb just like michael jordan is dumb. Why would anybody wear these. Even if they were free, i'd walk barefoot before i step foot in these! keep it 100
