Many Jordan fanatics of this era can easily reminisce back to their first ever Air Jordans – the ‘Bred’ IV in elementary school, the Hare VIII in kindergarten, or even the Air Jordan XI for the younger fellows. But what if your Jordanheadism went back to infancy, where your memory is unclear and ‘Michael Jordan’ was just another work for baby-talk? Flip through your family photo albums (if it’s digital, don’t bother looking!) and see what sort of kicks your parents had you rocking when you were ghost-ridin’ the stroller. Did you have the typical white tennis shoes with velcro straps, or were you extra-fresh with one of these crisp OG Air Jordans for kids?
For the latest Sneaker News: Classics Revisited segment, we put the spotlight on some classic Air Jordans, like the Bordeaux VII, Infrared and Carmine VI, some Air Jordan XIIs, but in kids and toddler sizes. These little sneakers-turned -collectible gems are particularly rare, especially at this condition, so feast your eyes on this one-of-a-kind treat – there’s so much heat in this pile it might as well be a bonfire. Take a look at this great gallery of images and let us know which mini-Jordan is your favorite, and head to Sneaker News HD for a nice high-res gallery! Many thanks to Packer Shoes, where all of these vintage Air Jordan items are displayed!
