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.

Family influence and guidance assumes a major role in shaping the career trajectory of a young player, but no player in perhaps the history of sports has had a personal tragedy make a direct impact in a player’s career than it has on Michael Jordan. The sudden death of his father, James R. Jordan, in July of 1993 was a direct contribution to Michael’s decision to retire in October of that year, and his triumph on Father’s Day of 1996 coerced one of the most heart-breaking emotional responses to victory we’ve ever seen. Michael’s fourth NBA Championship on Father’s Day – Was It The Shoes, or the work of a higher power?

michael jordan career high 69 points Michael Jordan Scores Career High 69 Points

Michael Jordan was a nightmare for pretty much every other team that wasn’t in Chicago – particularly the teams that were aligned in the Central Division. The Cleveland Cavaliers probably got the worst of Jordan’s wrath, particularly during the late 80′s and early 90′s; it’s not that the Cavs were a bad team – in fact, they were one of the better teams in the league – but Jordan just had their number in every which way possible. With that said, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Michael’s career high for scoring in a single game came against the Cavs, so enjoy tonight’s Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes? piece and find out more about this memorable moment in Jordan’s career.

Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes? has focused on the many great shots and scoring outputs Michael has produced over his career, but Jordan certainly was not a one-trick pony. Sure, he was the greatest scorer of all-time, but he’s got top-notch defense that earned him plenty of accolades and for a man who draws so much of the attention of the opposing defense, his passing was as much of a dangerous weapon as his shooting touch was. One pass, in particular, stands out the most; it’s perhaps the reason why the Chicago Bulls was able to win a second-straight NBA Title after MJ made his come-back. Read on for tonight’s Was It The Shoes? feature and let us know if this pass is one of Michael’s greatest career highlights.
