The Air Jordan ‘History Of Flight’ Collection was a depiction, by way of footwear, of Michael Jordan’s illustrious career and trail-blazing iconism of the shoe game. Placed on display at select Niketown locations around the glove, the Air Jordan ‘History Of Flight’ capitalized on the trademark White/Red colorway made famous by Michael by re-creating every Air Jordan in that colorway. Next up in our mini-feature of the History Of Flight is the Air Jordan VIII, so let’s think back to one of Michael’s most famous moments in the Air Jordan VIII; in Game 6 of the ’93 NBA Finals, Michael, who was expected to take the final shot of the game, passed the ball along to a wide-open John Paxson, who hit the series-winning 3-pointer. Michael, of course, went on to be the greatest player of all-time, while John Paxson continued his Bulls tenure as part of upper management, creating yet another championship attitude behind Derrick Rose and the Bulls.

Imagine what JB/Nike would be charging now for this type of quality on their retros...sadly, this was the normal quality back in the day...
No hate intended. With that being said, this colorway looks shit; don't care which retro it's on. Enough with the home grown kicks. Looks like he made all of them at home!!!
