For better or worse, 2012 was a defining year for the sneaker world and all that it encompasses. It was a year that saw certain shoes throw the laws of supply and demand so out of whack, that brands and retailers had to completely rethink the way they sell shoes to the public just to keep the peace. If you were willing to put in some legwork or, better yet, had the right connections, it was a banner year for sneaker enthusiasts. “Must-have” releases seemed to be at an all-time high and nearly every weekend offered up some sort of temptation for consumers. 2012 saw the release of some of the most eagerly anticipated and passionately sought-after sneakers the game had ever seen and it’s safe to say that things will never be the same again.

In between those, there were plenty of other desirable targets along the way, from the special limited editions and collaborations to beloved Retro returns and promising new designs and innovations. There were even a few certified sleeper hits that organically carved out their place among the year’s best releases. Due to an exponentially expanding consumer base and a heightened level of product awareness, you might not have been able to get your hands on every shoe you hunted for in 2012, but there was certainly no shortage of solid alternatives ripe for the picking in their absence.

2012 was a big year for the Converse Pro Leather, so why not present to you perhaps the most bad-arse pair we’ve ever come across? This original pair of Pro Leathers in Carolina Blue and White were worn and autographed by – you guessed it – Michael Jordan. MJ rocked the Pro Leathers during his Tar Heel years, during which he hit an NCAA Championship-winning jumper in ’82; Converse teamed up with Jordan Brand for an insanely limited-edition eBay auction release of 23 pairs of the Pro Leather, but these OGs are certainly rarer than the 2012 version! Peep the images below and check out the complete listing at Grey Flannel Auctions.
