Yes those sneakers were certainly his most frequent choice, but there are plenty of vintage photos floating around that prove that he enjoyed quite a few other footwear perks from the Swoosh. Case in point is the Nike Air 180 “Concord”.
The Nike Air Max 180 “Concord” was one of the sneakers that Michael Jordan could be seen wearing around Barcelona while he and the legendary Dream Team squad were out there for the 1992 Olympics.
